    This is Funk all the way. Lawler may have won a ton of titles, but how many times was he either the owner or the booker when he won them? Go find the title history and you'll see they were all like 2-4 week long reigns. Funk held the title back in the 70s, when the title was far more valuable. He went from legit wrestling to the hardcore he's famous for, to ECW where he was one of the biggest reasons the company survived. Some of his stuff with Flair is great, and the three way dance at Barely Legal is just fun to watch, as is his victory over Raven.
