Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring my friends meeting celebrities.
Crystal White is one of my few lost interviews. Several years ago, when she wrestled for Resistance Pro at Excalibur, I interviewed her, but the audio frizzed out. Unfortunately, it was a fun interview, too. Oh well. It was one of only a few of the more than 1,000 interviews I have done that have been lost for some reason.
Crystal is a model, wrestler, trainer, fighter and more. She currently trains at the Super Beast Academy in Las Vegas, Nevada, but I am hoping she will make a return to Chicago sometime. If she does, I will do my best to get an update interview from her.
A few years back, while training in Florida, Crystal ran into (then) WWE wrestler Dave Bautista. Since then, Bautista has retired from wrestling and ventured into movies, becoming a big action star.
Crystal looked pretty happy to snap a selfie with Bautista. For some reason, I don't think I would have gotten the selfie with Bautista. I think Bautista would be much more receptive to a beauty like Crystal than an old guy like me.
So Crystal is on notice. If she is ever around Chicago and available, I am going to try for that interview finally!
