WATCH: Terry Funk gives Dean Ambrose the means to cut down Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania: Raw, Mar. 21, 2016
In a Philadelphia watering hole, an extreme WWE Hall of Famer gifts The Lunatic Fringe with a dangerous implement to use in his No Holds Barred Street Fight against The Beast at WrestleMania.
If you were wondering, it is still unanswered question as to whether or not Terry Funk – who turns 71 today – is retired from the wars in and out of the wrestling ring. As a fan who has watched the former NWA World Champion over the course of five decades, I am not sure if given the chance the man who helped put hardcore wrestling on the map in ECW wouldn’t get in the ring...
What I’ve grown to admire from Sean Oliver is his ability to shape the direction with questions about others. This time, he elicits a lot of insight about Sabu by asking questions about the Sheik. We learn more about Sabu as a person by hearing him talk about his biggest influence, and see glimpses of personality, industry approaches, and family from this approach.
Professional wrestling’s long history is replete with cycles. This current cycle is long overdue for a revolution, and wow, it’s been a decade since I discussed this with Terry Funk, but at the time when his book was released, he was convinced that MMA would influence pro wrestling a lot more than it has.
There have been many outlaws in the wrestling business. Steve Austin, Dick Murdoch, Bruiser Brody, The Undertaker, Brian Pillman and most recently, Dean Ambrose comes to mind. Than there's Terry Funk.
This Pro Wrestling Radio classic features legendary WWE Hall of Famer Terry Funk. Terry talks the Vince McMahon buying WCW rumors, ECW, the state of the business, and more. The post PW Radio Classics – Terry Funk 2000 appeared first on Pro Wrestling Radio.
