Funk's Corner - Professional Wrestling, Is It Real?

Courtesy of Dory Funk Jr.:

Professional wrestling has always been a wild and crazy business. Eddie Graham and Boris Malenko had a bloody battle in the first ever Russian Chain Match in Tampa Florida. Fritz Von Erich and Dory Funk Sr. had the first Texas Death Match in Amarillo, Texas. In Miami Florida I would go into the ring for the last match on the card with blood staining the canvas left over from the violence that preceded the World Heavyweight Championship Match.

Good wrestling has always been a violent business with a grasp for credibility. The World Heavyweight Championship was the strongest reach for credibility in professional wrestling. With past champions like Lou Thesz, Pat O'Connor, Gene Kiniski, Dick Hutton and the promotional leaders like Dory Funk Sr. Sam Muchnick, Eddie Graham, Vince McMahon Sr. and Jim Crockett Sr. and Gordon Sole as wrestling commentator wrestling fans took pride in the professional wrestling product.

At the Funking Conservatory we teach all styles of professional wrestling from hardcore to championship wrestling style.

Now on !BANG! TV on our website at http://www.dory-funk.com Gordon Sole talks to Eddie Graham, Jack Brisco and Dory Funk Jr. about the upcoming World Championship Match to take place in the Greensboro Coliseum, North Carolina.
