I’m devastated to learn of Bray Wyatt’s passing. He and the Rotunda family have my undying respect and affection. I enjoyed his presence, promotions, in-ring performance, and connection to the @wwe world.

I send the Rotunda family and the Funk family my love, light, strength, and mana at this trying and tragic time.

As usual,

Terry Funk, a renowned professional wrestler, passes away at age 79.

WWE has revealed that Terry Funk, one of the most accomplished and important wrestlers in history, passed away on Wednesday at the age of 79.

In 2009, Funk was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, and two years ago, he was inducted into the International Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame. He won the heavyweight title of the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) in 1975, as well as the Extreme belt Wrestling (ECW) belt in 1993 and once again in 1997.

Terry Funk

He fought with it for 52 years.

The total of his body of work was greater than the pieces. Funk made an impact on numerous different wrestling eras and distinguished out in each one.

His antagonist from their storyline in the late 1980s, Ric Flair, wrote on social media, “In my entire life, I’ve never met a guy who worked harder.” Terry Funk was a fantastic wrestler, comedian, brave individual, and a wonderful friend.

Funk was regarded as one of the greatest wrestlers of the territorial era in the 1970s and early 1980s, headlining major events in Florida and Memphis, Tennessee, against notables like Dusty Rhodes and Jerry Lawler.

As a member of the heel tag team with his brother Dory Jr., Funk gained notoriety in Japan. Later in the 1980s, he wrestled for the WWF championship with Hulk Hogan and destroyed Flair in the WCW.

Fans of professional wrestling in the 1990s were familiar with Funk from the illegal ECW company, when he competed against wrestlers like Raven, The Sandman, Cactus Jack (Mick Foley), and Tommy Dreamer. Funk lost the ECW championship to daredevil Sabu in a bout on barbed wire.

After that, he joined the WWF as Chainsaw Charlie and competed with Foley for the tag team championships during the WWF’s “Attitude Era.”

Additionally, Funk appeared in a number of films, such as the 1980s cult classic “Road House,” as well as the Sylvester Stallone films “Paradise Alley” and “Over the Top,” for which he coordinated the stunts in the former.

Foley commented on X, “He was my mentor, my idol, and one of the closest friends.” “I’ve never seen a better wrestler than him. Look up a Terry Funk bout or a Terry Funk promo if you have the chance, and be thankful that this amazing guy contributed so much, for so long, to so many. Nobody else will ever be like him.
