Terry Funk

Anybody watch Prob Wrestling in the 80’s and 90’s?
Funk was a badass.
And also a halfway decent actor.

He lived a long time for a wrestler. They seem to die young.

Cocaine is a helluva drug! Especially when mixed with steroid rage. I forget the wrestler’s name but I live a mile away from a wrestler who killed his wife and son about 7 years ago.

His name was Chris Benoit. The murders and suicide actually happened in 2007.

Damn! The older I get the more I lose track of time. Maybe that’s a good thing.

Vice channel has a documentary series “Dark Side of the Ring” that details a lot of it.

Glen Jacobs, who wrestled as ‘Kane’, is in his second term as mayor of Knoxville, Tennessee.

He was bad ass, Undertaker’s brother (not in real life) if I recall correctly. I really wasn’t a fan, but would stop and watch for a few minutes while channel surfing.

From what I understand he has done a pretty good job too.

Just a few hours ago, it was reported that a wrestler just 36 years old had died.


He was a third generation wrestler on both parents side.
I am amazed at how many wrestlers kids go into the profession knowing how many die so young.
