Wrestling Legend, Former NWA Champion, and WWE Hall of Famer Terry Funk recently sat down with Wrestle: List for an interview. Here are the highlights:
His current health:

Do I feel confident about my health? I don’t think that anybody ever should feel confident about their health if they are 72 years old, and getting ready to go into the ring. If they are then they are probably some kind of an idiot and that is more than likely what I am.
His motivation to get back in the ring:

I wish that I had a boy that could continue on, but I don’t want my girls in the business

This goes to all the individuals out there, be in control of your business don’t let your business take control of you.
