This week, rumors began circulating that Terry Funk has been living in an assisted living facility due to mental health issues. These stories were confirmed by a post on Funk’s official Twitter account, saying that Funk is receiving residential care for both mental and physical issues. Funk is also said to have some days that are better than others, but there is no word on any specific issues.
Funk, 77 years old as of last month, began wrestling in 1965 and wrestled his most recent match in 2017. He wrestled or appeared in nearly every major wrestling promotion over the course of his career, including winning World Titles in the NWA as well as ECW. Funk is also known for his many retirements, with his first coming back in 1983. This even became a running joke, as he would announce his retirement and then say even he did not believe it.
Funk truly is one of a kind. Check out some of his amazing career:
