Funk’s Corner - Congressman Cliff Stearns Is Coming To The Funking Conservatory

Courtesy of Dory Funk Jr.:

Friday August 17th at 10:00AM, Congressman Cliff Stearns will be at the Funking Conservatory wrestling school in Ocala, Florida. Congressman Stearns will be observing our professional wrestling training program. Congressman Stearns is in prime physical condition and has been invited to participate in our wrestling drills.

Congressman Stearns has called on the House Energy & Commerce Committee to investigate allegations of rampant steroid use in professional wrestling. Congressman Stearns said, “Millions of young wrestling fans, for better or for worse, look up to professional wrestlers as role models.”

“The Anabolic Steroid Act of 1990 makes it a felony to use and distribute these drugs. Congress needs to investigate the recent events and find out how big of a problem steroid use is in professional wrestling.”

At the Funking Conservatory we welcome Congressman Stearns to a wrestling training program where safety of the athletes is our highest priority. The leadership of our program is also acutely aware that Millions of young wrestling fans look up to professional wrestlers as role models.
