Terry Funk is known for his hardcore wrestling style he adopted in the latter part of his career that inspired many younger wrestlers, including Mick Foley. Funk has appeared in nearly every professional wrestling organization. He is a former two-time world heavyweight champion, having held the NWA title once and the USWA belt once.

Funk was a primary subject of the documentary film, “Beyond the Mat.” Funk is often noted for the longevity of his career, which has included multiple “retirement” matches.
