Former NWA World Heavyweight Champion and WWE Hall of Famer Terry Funk will be wrestling on December 11th in Japan at Korakuen Hall, according to the Wrestling Observer newsletter. It will be a singles match against Mil Mascaras. It would be the first time in many years (probably more than 20 years) that Funk has had a match with someone that is older than he is.
Funk and Mascaras were supposed to wrestle some shows last year in Texas for WWL but plans fell through. They haven’t had a singles match together since the 1970s. They did have a tag match in 1983. The match consisted of the Funk brothers against the Mascaras Brothers in the 1983 All Japn Real World Tag League tournament.
Funk teamed with his brother Dory Funk last year for All Japan Pro Wrestling against Masanobu Fuchi and Osamu Nishimura. The match ended in a 20 minute time limit draw. Funk appeared as Tommy Dreamer’s tag team partner at last November’s House of Hardcore 3. The defeated Sean Waltman and Lance Storm. It was promoted as the last time Dreamer and Funk would wrestle together.
