Seems like the funker ain't doing so well. Hopefully just a blip in the road.

Everything you could want in a pro wrestler and then some. 

Man, I hope Terry Funk gets better and lives many, many more years but that is a very unfortunate typo, which turns that tweet (almost) funny.

Yeah, when I read 'thoughts and prayers' my heart skipped a beat. Really only something you should use when somebody is in serious peril I reckon, but don't think Dustin meant any malice. 

Plus, Terry Funk will outlive us all. In the end it will be him, Keith Richards, cockroaches and Triple H with the World Title.

PWinsider has confirmed that it not a death knell, but with the passing of his wife, and the pain from years of injuries he is not in a good personal place at the moment.  Real shame, he’s a true legend.

One of my favourite contributions of Funk to popular culture is the episode of Quantum Leap where he’s one of Dr Beckett’s opponents for the tag belts when Sam has to prevent his brother dying of a heart attack in the ring. Brilliantly the episode part adheres to kayfabe and presents wrestling as real combat (in title matches). Funks fantastic, especially when he catches Sam in a compromising position with his wife, who has a kink for watching her jealous husband beat up other men.
