Mick Foley Honors Terry Funk Who is Currently in a Lot of Pain

Dustin Rhodes recently posted on social media about Terry.

Apparently, Terry is going through a lot of pain due to various hip problems. That is the reason why Mick spoke about him. Mick wished Terry well, and even went on to say that Terry is the greatest of all-time. He also asked fans to pray for Terry.

“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,” Foley tweeted.

“THINKING OF THE FUNKER 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." The above was Mick Foley's post on Funker on his Facebook page.
