Mick Foley Sends Well Wishes To Terry Funk – Details

90

WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley took Facebook and Twitter today, sending some well wishes to Terry Funk after it was revealed that he is dealing with some pain issues, which are related to his hip. The issues are causing him a lot of pain. With that being said, it’s not a life-threatening situation. Foley posted the following to his Facebook page:

“I need to give Terry Funk a phone call. From what I understand, he’s in some serious pain after a lifetime of giving his all to the wrestling business. His hip, in particular is giving him a lot of trouble. Terry is not only a great friend, but my mentor, and one of the biggest influences on my career. In my opinion, he is the greatest of all time, based not only on his amazing array of incredible matches with all different types of opponents over the course of several decades – but for his ability to make it SO easy to believe! No one made the suspension of disbelief easier than Terry Funk. Even in his 70s, he could enter a gymnasium full of fans – many years home had no idea who he was, and still fill the gymnasium with genuine concern over the well-being of the referee, timekeeper, and any wrestler who crossed his path.

When I’m on the road doing my one-man shows, my favorite stories revolve around Terry Funk. If you have some positive energy or a prayer to spare, but I think Terry would appreciate them.”

Foley also posted the following to his Twitter account:

“I’m wishing my friend and mentor, Terry Funk the very best as he deals with some serious pain issues. The Funker’s hip is giving him a lot of trouble.

No one sacrificed more for the fans than Terry Funk – the GOAT in my opinion, because he made it SO easy to believe.”
