73-year old Terry Funk is coming out of retirement: “I still think I can kick ass”

73-year old Terry Funk is coming out of retirement. “I’m back doing what I love,” Funk told Sports Illustrated.

He is booked to wrestle in a six-man tag team matches with The Rock ‘N’ Roll Express against Jerry “The King” Lawler, son Brian Christopher, and Doug Gilbert for Big Time Wrestling on 9/22 in Raleigh, NC. He will also be on their 9/23 card in Spartanburg, SC.

Funk noted that his father passed away while doing what he loved. “I certainly don’t want to pass away, but I’m doing what I love. And so what if I’m doing it in my 70s? I know this is hard for some people to understand, but I still think I can kick ass. This love of wrestling has been in my family with my dad, my brother, and myself. To this day, it’s what I love.”

Funk said that he is not looking to die in the ring but when that day comes, he would rather pass away on the top of a mountain.

There will be a meet and greet before both shows. Names advertised include Kevin Nash, Sgt. Slaughter, Jimmy Valiant, and Tommy Rich. For ticket information, visit
