Continuano, ancora oggi, i saluti e i tributi all'icona Hardcore, dagli atleti che hanno avuto l'onore di condividere il quadrato di lotta insieme a Terry, alle federazioni che hanno avuto il privilegio di averlo avuto nel proprio roster.

I’m very sad to hear of the passing of a true legend & a great person, Terry Funk.
Several of us had the honor & pleasure of being at his Double Cross Ranch many years ago after a show in Amarillo, I’ll never forget that!! Words can’t explain how Terry was just GREAT on so many… pic.twitter.com/ftA7jUtAqt — taz (@OfficialTAZ) August 23, 2023
I met Terry Funk once, when Harley brought him in for a show.
I introduced myself, expecting a simple greeting. Terry proceeded to talk to me for 15mins, asking questions and even explaining how the human perception of time changes as we age. 1/2 pic.twitter.com/yJqj83wG7s — Simon Gotch / サイモン・ゴッチ (@deviousjourney) August 23, 2023

Terry Funk is gone. I just talked to Terry’s daughter, Brandee, who gave me the awful news.
He was my mentor, my idol, one of the closest friends. He was the greatest wrestler I ever saw.
If you get the chance, look up a Terry Funk match or a Terry Funk promo, and give thanks… pic.twitter.com/WwdFLwXqZ0 — Mick Foley (@foleyispod) August 23, 2023
