• OLD SCHOOL HISTORY (August 31, 1983) – Terry Funk’s First Ever Retirement
On this day in 1983, we witnessed the very first time when Old School Wrestling Legend Terry Funk “retired”.
It happened during an AJPW All Japan Pro Wrestling special event in Tokyo, Japan.
As many times as he retired since that day – we lost count of it a long time ago – he was always good for coming out of retirement for “one more run”.
Terry Funk, who’s widely considered one of the greatest promo guys in the history of the business, eventually did retire for real 32 years later in 2015, however with him you never know, so ‘NEVER SAY NEVER’!
• OLD SCHOOL HISTORY (August 31, 1985) – WWF Championship Wrestling
