Bradley Cain (born September 8, 1970) is an American Professional Wrestler, trainer and author best known for his time in WCW as Lodi. He debuted in 1997 and worked in the North Carolina independent scene before arriving in WCW in late November 1997 as a member of Raven's Flock. He was given the name Lodi because of his resemblance to Billy Idol. He was a Jobber, generally there to get beat up by other wrestlers. After Perry Saturn defeated Raven at WCW Fall Brawl 98, Lodi drifted for a year until he and Lenny Lane were put together as the team The West Hollywood Blondes, a nod to the 1993 team The Hollywood Blondes, "Stunning" Steve Austin and "Flyin'" Brian Pillman. The team actually got over and helped WCW's sagging TV Ratings, but the organization GLAAD objected to the gimmick, leading to them being repackaged as Standards And Practices. In that role, they had some connection to Ms. Hancock (Stacy Keibler), which was never explained. They were also known as XS, then 2XS, none of which got over. WWE did not pick up his contract after buying WCW so he went off into the independents.

As for his in-ring achievements, he is a former NWA Mid-Atlantic Hardcore Champion, a former RWA (Renegade Wrestling Alliance in Pennsylvania) Heavyweight Champion, a former WrestleForce Tag Team Champion with fellow Flock alumnus Sick Boy and a former TCW (Dusty Rhodes' Turnbuckle Championship Wrestling in Georgia) Hardcore Champion.
