    Nope. Never said that. I just pointed out that it would be far more plausible for Thesz to out wrestle Terry and wear him down with repeated submissions then it would be for Funk to leave the ring and just start throwing out every weapon imaginable. I never said anything about Terry not being able to counter Thesz.

    Not at all. But based on the logic that you and others have presented it seems as though Terry would leave the ring as soon as the match starts, wrap himself in barbed wire and return with a chair in one hand and a kendo stick in the other. That's dumb. Terry's reputation as this hardcore maniac means nothing in this match.

    Never said that either. Now you are just making shit up. I wrote that I very much expect the use of weapons in this match. Like chairs. What I don't expect is for it to devolve into this hardcore death match whatever the fuck because that's not realistic.

    This is a Last Man Standing match. It is not some hardcore death match. All Thesz has to do is keep Terry down for a 10 count. Pretty easy. All he has to do is stretch Terry until he KO's him. He's done that to other opponents before. We have seen the limits of Terry's pain tolerance when Flair made him quit after repeated applications of the Figure 4. This is going to mirror that match except Terry's going to be taking a nap instead of quitting.

    I'm sure chair shots are not going to be enough to keep Thesz down. Neither would getting hit with the ring bell or a TV monitor. If you think Terry is going to suddenly start busting out tables, ladders, barb wire, explosives, tacks, glass, that's not realistic. That's dumb.

    Doesn't mean he wouldn't use one. Now you're the one that's being silly.

    Really, because I have yet to hear a single logical argument to counter this. All I've been hearing is that Funk is this hardcore motherfucker with a pain tolerance that defies human logic, and instead of this being a simple Last Man's Standing match it's going to turn into the type of match that New Jack would work.

    That's dumb logic and not realistic to either of these men.

    Not nearly as silly as you just blatantly ignoring my arguments. But do you know why Thesz's opponents would wrestle with him instead of trying to do other shit? Because if they didn't he would force them to wrestle him. This is why The Sheik ran away and hid under a bus. Because Thesz was beating his ass.

    As far as Terry Funk respecting someone because they were a wrestler: Someone needs to see the Florida Title match between Mike Graham and Dory Funk, Jr. Terry Funk interfered in that match so many times that it was not funny. BTW, Mike Graham was the son of Eddie Graham, CWF's owner and promoter.

    As for the incident with The Sheik: Thesz long had a rep for having little to no respect for "gimmick" wrestlers. Hence, he enjoyed humiliating wrestlers like Sheik and Gorgeous George.

    Those things said, Funk was a brawler. He was NOT the wrestler Dory Jr. was. Lou Thesz was a WRESTLER. If anyone could make Funk submit, it would be Thesz. Even in his twilight years, Thesz was a great mat tactician, and could put away a lot of people. In the end, Funk will try to brawl his way in this match. Thesz will take the shelling, and dish it back out in spades. Funk the Brawler, in the end, would fall to Thesz the Wrestler, as there would just come a time when Funk would run out of gas against a master like THesz.

    Lou Thesz for the win..

    Make up your mind Ech, does Terry respect Thesz's wish to keep it a wrestling match, or do they both use weapons?

    If Funk used a weapon, Thesz would get it out of his hands, throw it out of the ring, and then proceed to punch Funk all over the building.

    I came in here thinking this was a close contest and I have a personal affinity for the Funker. Never saw Thesz but obviously know how great he was historically.

    Your post took me from leaning Funk to no brainer voting for Thesz. Good post brother.

    Way to miss the point. I was talking about Funk's ability to absorb pain and keep on fighting. Which is kind of the point in this match, isn't it? To be the...last man standing? I can't imagine a scenario where Funk doesn't answer a 10 count.

    No, it was just a bad point.

    And you can't imagine a scenario where Funk doesn't answer a 10 count?

    All you have to do is go look up all the times that he didn't.

    Like I said previously. Funk has lost a bunch of Texas Death Matches over the years. The Texas Death Match is the EXACT SAME MATCH as this.

    There's a lot of times Funk never answered that 10 count.

    Thesz on the other hand, also fought a bunch of these matches. He never once lost one that I could find.

    So in reality... not this make believe world where Terry Funk is the bionic grandpa... Thesz is the one who you shouldn't be able to imagine a scenario where he wouldn't answer the 10 count.

    Because he did EVERY SINGLE TIME he had to. Funk didn't.

    Lou Thesz is arguably the greatest pure wrestler of all time. He is the epitome of old timey and class.

    Goddamn shame he's up against a guy who is going to run out to the ring with a running fucking chainsaw and technically is allowed to use it. (He obviously won't, but yeah). He might use the branding iron, the blunt objects covered in barbed wire (which might also be on fire), the garbage cans...hell, he might wrap himself in barbed wire just so Thesz is afraid to touch him. Funk was crazy, but was a sadiatic savant.

    Id go for Thesz in almost any other situation, but I just can't here.

    I voted for Terry Funk because I felt that he had more experience in a last man standing/texas death match.
    Thesz didn't seem like the type of person who would be comfortable in a match against an opponent with the hardcore mindset of Funk
    Thesz was a true technical wrestling specialist, but I don't think this type of match favors him because of the sadistic and brutal lengths a person must go through in order to win this match.
