Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.
Anyone who knows Brandon Bement must admit they would love to put him through a table like Bully Ray did at a show a year ago. We are all envious of Bully Ray.
Seriously, BD Smooth is a great guy. He is one of the hardest workers on the indy wrestling scene. He will jump at the chance to perform in he ring, but he is always there to do ring setup and takedown and all other thankless tasks. When performing as a singles wrestler or as part of a tag team 9most notably the Slobberknockers), BD Smooth is highly entertaining.
Bully Ray (Ray LoMonaco) is one of the most accomplished tag team wrestlers ever. As part of the Dudley Boys, he racked up titles everywhere he went with "brother" DVon Dudley.
Then something incredible happened. The Bully found major success as a singles wrestler. He made tweaks in his character as he transformed himself into a legitimate singles star, capturing the TNA title twice.
BD and Bully would have made an interesting tag team. BD could have fit in with the Dudley gang. I think there's a place for Smooth Dudley. Ray agreed there is a place for him and that place was through a table. Even in pictures, BD is still entertaining the masses. It's not everyone who cam get a pic like this. Im envious of BD!
