Today's Q&A is with OVW Ring Announcer & Fan Advocate Terry Boddie. You can find him on twitter @tpboddie. Thanks again to Terry for participating in OVWmania's 1-Year Anniversary Q&A.

1. Who were your favorite wrestlers growing up?
A lot. Bruno Sammartino, Ivan Putski, Andre the Giant, Superstar Billy Graham...later it was Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, then it was Taz, Austin Aries, Bobby Roode, Matt Morgan, Ken Anderson, Triple H, Rock, Orton, Cena...and every person who I have introduced while at OVW.

2. When did you decide you wanted to be in wrestling?
Always wanted to, but decided to be a part of OVW a little over 2 years ago.

3. Who has helped you most in the industry?
First of all...there was Mo Green, Paredyse and Mike Mondo. Then there is the great announcers at OVW, Brittany (Devore) and Ron (Hed) well as Al Snow, and of course Gilbert (Corsey) and Dean (Hill).

4. Who do you enjoy watching in the ring the most?
That's tough...I just enjoy great wrestling. Some of my favorites have been watching the people making their debuts at Homecoming and the faces on the fans from the ring (the kids) when I am welcoming everyone to the show.

5. What is your favorite match you've seen in your time with OVW?
There are a few...there was the (Michael) Hayes/Ali (Vaez) cage match, any match with Silvio, Raphael Constantine, the stars at OVW all do a great job.

6. If you weren’t in wrestling, what do you think your second career choice would be?
I think I would be either a NY Detective or a bar owner.

I love a good steak (Pat's Steakhouse) or NY Style Pizza.

All kinds. I have everything from Gospel to Heavy Metal on my playlist.
