Ocala Star Banner Story May 15, 2009

On Saturday afternoon, April 4th, I stood on stage facing 12,000 empty seats at the Toyota Center in Houston. I was rehearsing my induction speech for that night’s WrestleMania 25 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Midway through my Speech someone grabbed me from behind. I wondered who it was with such a strong grip on me?

At WrestleMania 25 I was with my family, in fact two families of Funk and some outstanding wrestlers from the Funking Conservatory. I mingled with celebrities who treated me as a celebrity. I even sparred with Kid Rock.

On this night, WWE President Linda McMahon talked to me about her appointment to the Connecticut Board of Education and her ideas on improving our education system.

On this night, I spoke with Vince McMahon, Linda McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, Triple H, Shane McMahon, Dusty Rhodes, Kid Rock, Mickey Rourke, Chris Jericho, Former students, Matt and Jeff Hardy, Mark Henry, Edge, Christian, Lord Steven Regal and Mickie James.

I spoke to my brother Terry Funk about how proud our late Mother (Dorothy Funk Culver) and Father (Dory Funk Sr.) would be.
