WWE Mourns the Passing of Wrestling Legend Terry Funk at Age 79

A stalwart admired by fans and peers worldwide for his unwavering determination, passion, and enduring career, Terry Funk will forever be etched in history as one of the most resilient competitors to grace the wrestling ring. From WWE to All Japan, WCW to ECW, Funk’s legacy is defined by his ability to stand toe-to-toe with the best, constantly pushing the boundaries of what was achievable within the squared circle.

Born to Dory Funk, Sr., Terry entered wrestling during the 1960s, forging a successful tag team alongside his brother, fellow WWE Hall of Famer Dory Funk, Jr., before stepping into the limelight as a solo star. In December 1975, Funk made his mark by defeating Jack Brisco to claim the NWA World Championship in Miami.

Funk’s WWE journey began in 1985, aligning with his brother during the Rock ‘n’ Wrestling era. The Funks made their presence felt on the grand stage of WrestleMania 2, triumphing over Tito Santana & The Junkyard Dog.

Moving on to WCW in 1989, Funk engaged in an epic rivalry with “Nature Boy” Ric Flair, culminating in a legendary “I Quit” Match that remains a timeless classic.

Funk’s influence extended globally, particularly in Japan where he earned adoration as a legend of All Japan Pro Wrestling alongside his brother Dory. Later, he pioneered hardcore wrestling alongside WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, introducing the infamous style to a worldwide audience through a 1995 tournament, pushing the boundaries with tables, chairs, and barbed wire.

A cornerstone of Extreme Championship Wrestling’s growth, Funk showcased his mettle against the younger hardcore talents of the renegade promotion. Headlining ECW’s inaugural pay-per-view, Barely Legal in April 1997, Funk seized the ECW Championship by defeating Raven.

Funk’s WWE return in 1998 as Chainsaw Charlie, the unhinged partner of Cactus Jack, played a pivotal role in the iconic Hell in a Cell Match between The Undertaker and Mankind.

Even at nearly 60, Funk’s influence persisted in WCW’s title picture in 2000. He captured the United States Championship and WCW Hardcore Title. His final WWE bout occurred at ECW One Night Stand in 2006, teaming with Tommy Dreamer and Beulah McGillicutty against Mick Foley, Edge, and Lita.

Funk’s legacy extended beyond wrestling, with roles in Hollywood films like “Roadhouse,” “Paradise Alley,” and “Over the Top.”

Acknowledging his nearly 50-year contribution to sports-entertainment, Terry was enshrined in the WWE Hall of Fame alongside his brother in 2009, a distinction presented by the late Dusty Rhodes.

WWE extends heartfelt condolences to Funk’s family, friends, and devoted fans.”
