    Terry Funk was a successful NWA champion, with he and Dory being the only siblings to hold that belt. Afterwards he helped trail blaze the modern hardcore style. Though I would probably say the hardcore style eventually became the dominant portion of his legacy, even though he knew who to work a simpler, more methodical style.

    Paul Orndorff was a top territorial champion and had a feud with Ric Flair and later Hulk Hogan when he left to go to the WWE. Paul Orndorff was a great talent. Charismatic and great at his role. But he's outmatched by Terry Funk here. Sadly.

    Gotta vote the younger Funk.

    Funk is obviously remembered for the garbage wrestling he has ruined his health pursuing, but it doesn't change the fact that he was a long term champion of the world at a time that was not be to scoffed at. Orndorff was a very useful hand in his run in the WWE, and versatile in character, but he never came close to the accolades Funk had.
