Re: The legacy25: Terry Funk
Oh christ I forgot to add the famous punch-drunk selling, as well as his overall selling being in the upper echelon in wrestling history. Seriously I could see him sell Lawler's haymakers all day long, such a nifty genius and he's underrated in adding unique touches/spots to his matches I can't recall anyone else thinking to utilise.
Whilst I kept the brunt of my first post talking about his wrestling ability, the man's ability as a bonafide GOAT promo can't be overlooked. He has such a sooting and respectful voice that works when he conducts a professional and polite interview like you'd associate with Japan and the NWA, but oh man can he pull off the deranged and psychopathic voice/mannerisms to a tee. I'm convinced Eddie studied Memphis and NWA tapes of Funk in his lunatic best when he was perfecting his 2005 sociopath character.
