Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion: Review & Recommend Wrestlers/Matches/Shows
The Lawler/Funk Empty Arena Match is one of the best executed segments in pro wrestling history as is their feud. When you look at the intentions to why Funk wanted this match you can see how this crazy "Wild Man" was tired of Lawler’s home field advantage with the rabid Memphis faithful and in his paranoia believed even the refs were in Lawler's corner. So they threw all of those particulars out the window and just had a FIGHT. Foley credits this match greatly for inspiring him and how could you blame him after a performance like this from Funk and Lawler.
Terrific review 777!
