Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.
I can post this picture of my pal John D. meeting All Elite Wrestling's Kris Statlander without being envious. I Recently had the pleasure of meeting Statlander at StarrCast VI.
Actually, I met Statlander a couple years back. Because it was during the pandemic, Statlander was masked. While I understand and respect her decision to wear the mask at the time, it wasn't a picture I really wanted.
When I saw Statlander would be at StarrCast VI, she went to the top of my list of wrestlers I wanted to meet. I could make up for the mask photo.
Of course, while I was there, John D. was also there to meet Stanlander and the many other great wrestlers. John is a frequent attendee of such events and we cross paths many times. John also meets a lot of singers and other celebrities. Thus, he has many opportunities to take pictures that make me envious. Fortunately, this one with Statlander is not one of them.
Go to StarrCast.com for more info on a great wrestling event. Check back here for more friends with celebrities. Feel free to send your own pics to me.
