Terry Funk Recovering From COVID-19

The "Hardcore Legend" is on the mend

Former NWA and ECW World champion Terry Funk is currently recovering from a bout of COVID-19, according to a note in this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

The 76-year-old wrestling icon apparently contracted the virus at a church service several weeks ago, and is presently in isolation. By all accounts, however, Funk appears to be doing fine.

Funk has been battling other health issues in recent times. Dustin Rhodes related back in February that Funk was dealing with lots of pain from what was believed to be an issue with his hip.

A part of the wrestling industry for nearly 60 years, Funk has held championship gold in WWE, WCW/NWA, ECW, All Japan, and various prolific American territories. He was a 2004 inductee into the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum.

Funk's last official match took place on September 23, 2017, teaming with The Rock n Roll Express in victory over Jerry Lawler, Brian Christopher, and Doug Gilbert at an event in South Carolina.

Cultaholic sends its best wishes to Mr. Funk, in the hopes for a speedy recovery.
