Well I'm glad that Mr. Funk seems to have a lot of people backing him in the tournament, let's hope he can get far.

Now, with Terry Funk's fourteen month world title reign being in the 70's, he didn't benefit from PPV and TV like the superstars of today, making it very hard to find footage of him in his prime. If I get round to it, I'll upload some matches I have of him from an extensive compilation of him from in the 70's/early 80's. For now, I'll provide you with as much as I can. Before carrying on, please watch the videos posted in my original post if you already haven't.

Firstly, I present one of Funk's most well-known and praised matches of his career with Ric Flair. The I Quit match at Clash of the Champions IX. This match had come about after Flair had beaten Steamboat at WrestleWar for the NWA Championship. Eventually, things had esculated to Funk piledriving Flair through a table, leaving Flair out of action for several months. Upon returning, they had a classic brawl which ended up recieving a five star rating from WON.













Here's a great promo during the Funks/Dusty & Wahoo feud back in Georgia. The man could cut a great promo and was truly underrated on the mic.



This match marks the end of Terry Funk's fourteen month world championship reign. Funk went into this match with an already injured knee, resulting in Race winning with a rare submission, the Indian Deathlock. This would mark Harley Race's second world title reign.



Terry Funk is a true legend in Japan, becoming one of the most popular American workers to ever work there. Terry had announced his plans to retire, billing this his final match. Of course, he would return to in-ring action a year later, but this marked the first of many "retirements" he had. This shows how over and respected he is in Japan.



Terry Funk and Stan Hansen (another underrated worker) are two of the best brawlers the business has seen. If you can get past the bad quality, here's a fun little brawl the two guys had.



Here's another great slugfest. Terry and Abdullah put on a great match back in the late 70's.



Now here's a rarity, something a lot of people don't know about. Bret Hart made a one-time appearance in a co-produced ECW event to wrestle against Funk at one of his retirement shows. The Funk had aged and wasn't the worker he was, but it's still a great match.

X will love you for this. He got Terry Funk to the final 4 in the first one I think.

I would but on a very different level. While I spent years traveling the world as both the AWA and NWA World champion I never had the chance to draw the numbers that these guys did. Would I have been able to draw in the 60's and 70's? Maybe now in my 2008 shape and wrestling style but remember those guys worked 380 shots a year.

This match took place not long after Steamboat's world title run. Flair had turned face after being attacked by Funk, who also attacked Steamboat. Funk/Steamboat decided to settle their differences at Clash of the Champions 7 in this great match.



Terry Funk, at 53 years old becoming the ECW Champion, twenty-two years after winning the NWA Heavyweight championship. Terry Funk had shown how dedicated he was to the business, appearing at every ECW show as the champion while becoming a champion and regularly performing in Japan at the same time.
