Funk's Corner - Ring Rope Breaks On Johnny Magnum - Credit Safety Training He's Okay

Courtesy of Dory Funk Jr. - Coach of the Funking Conservatory Wrestling School:

Johnny Magnum survived the top rope breaking during his Funking Conservatory World Championship Match against Elvis Sharp. Magnum indicated to the Referee, Claudia Rieff "The Claw" he was okay and requested to continue the match.

Johnny Magnum's judgment proved good as the match was allowed to continue with Johnny Magnum winning the Funking Conservatory World Championship with his Cargo Drop and Leg Binding Cradle of the victory.

Johnny Magnum credits his safety training at the Funking Conservatory for his avoidance of serious injury. After the match I spoke with Johnny Magnum and he said, "In that instance that I heard the rope snap all I could think of was you telling me always get your arm over the rope and hang on."
