A very old wrestler but still a great man who invented hardcore wrestling one day in his garden shed. Is currently retired/not retired (Accordingly for it is impossible for even a wiki to keep up to date with his current wrestling status.)
Defeat Stretcher Lewis for the World Title back in 1922. Held the title for 5 years, before being defeated by Ric Flair. The match drew 30,000 at Old Comiskey Park. The feud between Flair and Funk has lasted for over 60 years. Including many family members and generations of Funks and Flairs.
Doesn't trust a man whose ass is wider than his shoulders.
Once threatened to fight a horse in WCW. Would have drawn a million buys.
