OVWmania 1YA Q&A: James "Moose" Thomas

Today's Q&A is with OVW Superstar James "Moose" Thomas. You can find him on twitter @OVWMoose. Thanks again to Moose for participating in OVWmania's 1-Year Anniversary Q&A.

1. Who were your favorite wrestlers growing up?
Mick Foley, because he wasn't the typical BodyGuy, and Mr. Perfect and Bret Hart because they were so good technically.

2. When did you decide you wanted to be a pro wrestler?
In Your House: Hart vs. Diesel, when Undertaker pulled Diesel through the ring.

3. Who has helped you most in the industry?
Too many people to list, but Ken Patera for giving a fat kid a chance, and Rip Rogers for giving me a little bit of the vast amount of knowledge he has. The man is a wrestling genius.

4. Who do you enjoy working with in the ring the most?
Mike Mondo, Brad Maddox, Rudy Switchblade, and Chris Silvio to name a couple. I just felt like we had good chemistry, and I'll take Mike Hayes on my side any day of the week. I love that guy like a brother. Chris Sharpe as a ref, as he is the best I have worked with period. I could go on about others.

5. What is your favorite match that you've been in?
Moose vs. Beef Wellington in a ladder match. If you haven't seen it, check it out. Moose vs. Mondo in a hardcore match, both in Clarksville and the TV match were up there. Eugene (Nick Dinsmore) and Damien Sandow (Idol Stevens) vs. Moose and Anthony Bravado. Too many favorites to list, but those pop in my mind first.

6. If you weren’t wrestling, what do you think your second career choice would be?
Stay at home dad. I love my daughter and have a second on the way. Nothing is better than being their hero.

7. What’s your favorite food?

8. What kind of music are you into?
Anything that has heart and gets you moving.

9. Favorite movies and/or actors?
Gladiator, Old School, Shawshank Redemption.

10. Any secret talents?
If I told you, they wouldn't be secret!

***Moose also had the following message for me and the fans:
Keep doing your thing and please let the OVW fans know they haven't seen the last of Moose. I'm a fighter!
