Friendly Encounters: Gene Okerlund and Heather Owens

Friendly Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.

I met Hardcore Heather Owens at Resistance Pro Wrestling, although I probably saw her at Days of the Dead prior to RPro.  I just didn't know her then.  Aside from being a talented wrester, Heather is one of the Days crew.
I have seen a lot of people (including me) ask Heather for a picture with her.  It is always cool to see that person get excited about taking a picture with another celebrity.  Such was the case when Heather met wrestling Hall of Famer Gene Okerlund.
Actually Gene looked just as happy.  Knowing Gene, he does have an eye for the ladies.  I'm sure Heather did not have to ask twice.
Both Gene and Heather are great.  Look how happy they both look in this picture.  I just love when the picture really shows happiness.  This picture is perfect.
There are five Days events every year.  I highly encourage everyone to attend one of them.  You might see Gene or another wrestling legend.  You will probably also see Heather, but look quickly, because she is usually a blur of activity making sure things run smoothly.
Mean Gene meets Hardcore Heather.  This is awesome!
