WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley posted on Twitter about having lunch with the legendary Terry Funk in Amarillo, TX.
“LUNCH WITH FUNK. I took a road trip to Amarillo to visit Terry Funk, talk about the old days, and enjoy some great BBQ. 28 years have passed between these two photos, but @TheDirtyFunker remains my idol and mentor.”
Funk has reportedly been living in an assisted living facility as he battles dementia. “He’s in assisted living,” John Arezzi said in November on his Pro Wrestling Spotlight podcast. “I spoke to him earlier this year and he had a hard time remembering and he snapped back in. I was trying to get him on one of these Pro Wrestling Spotlight Live [shows] that I did on YouTube. I talked to him but I just knew after that conversation that it wasn’t gonna happen because he was in the middle of a conversation and he goes, ‘am I John, who are you?’ He didn’t really remember very much but when I was with Mick Foley not too long ago, a couple of weeks back here in Nashville, he had talked to Terry recently and he said that Terry was sounding better. He’s getting the care he needs and it looks like Terry Funk is fighting as he always has done to this time just remain cognizant and just be the legend that he is and we wish him the best and we pray for him all the time.”
