Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends meeting celebrities.
2econd Wrestling debuted a little over a year ago. Billie Starkz won a tournament to become the first 2econd champ. To be clear, Billie won THE title. With no disrespect to women (or men), 2econd Wrestling only has one title and men and women can fight for it.
It was a bold move for the new company to have women in the first title tourney and even bolder to have their first champ be a woman. In all fairness, Billie is a worthy and deserving champ. As my author pal John Cosper told me a while back, Billie is poised for stardom. It's really only a matter of time before she signs with one of the big companies.
Tony Feddeler and I agree she is one of the best on the independent scene. We are enjoying every match we see of hers, because we know she will not be here much longer.
On Sunday, February 19, we will get at least one more chance to see Billie as she returns at 2econd Wrestling's Identity Theft. Billie alone would be enough for me to go to this show, but 2econd has a lot more on the card.
2econd Wrestling has something special. They are young and growing, but each show so far has been excellent. I expect Identity Theft to be another great show. I'll be "On the Beat" as always, accompanied by Tony.
