Friend Encounters: Konnan and JD

Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends meeting celebrities.

John Dean is another pal from years of crossing paths at wrestling events and comic cons. He has me beat with musicians and actors though. Today, I feature JD with one of the most famous wrestlers, especially south of the border.
Konnan is a wrestling legend in Mexico. He also enjoyed success in the U.S. in World Championship Wrestling and TNA/Impact Wrestling and had a short stint in the WWE. In addition to earning many titles, Konnan helped many other Mexican wrestlers find spots in the U.S. and helped them once here. 
Unfortunately, Konnan has experienced health issues in his recent years, including having a hip replacement.
John has me beaten with Konnan. I have never met the legend. Even though he has this one on me, I am still happy to see John doing what he loves.
