Caller Brian asks ODB about working in OVW and a college buddy of his. ODB says OVW was one of her best experiences ever. Danny Davis and Al Snow let her work with the contracted wrestlers, and they were all together.
Jack asks if ODB was surprised if WWE never brought her up form OVW. ODB said they always told her she didn’t look like a diva, and she is proud to be in TNA and WWE never gave her a shot. ODB said when WWE would tell her she didn’t look right it lit a fire under her.
ODB talks about WWE not being affiliated with OVW anymore. She think it sucks, but she hopes she didn’t kill the territory. ODB thinks Danny will still keep it going and WWE might still look for talent there.

OIB asks ODB who her idols growing up were. ODB said #1 was Randy Savage because of his colorful outfits and presence. ODB also says she loved Ultimate Warrior and the way he’d run to the ring. She also names Honky Tonk Man, Dibiase, Demolition and more.
