We recently reported that NWA/WCW/WWF/ECW Legend Terry Funk is suffering from health issues these days and is staying in an assisted living facility in his home town of Amarillo, Texas.
Ric Flair, a longtime friend of Funk, revealed a voicemail message he received from Terry a few days ago.
Here’s what Terry Funk said in his audio message to The Nature Boy:
“Hey Flair, this is The Funker, why don’t you ever give me a call? My number, you should have the God damn thing after 40 years. Flair, give me a call. God damn.”
Here’s what Flair wrote about it on Twitter:
“Terry, We Have Wrestled For Hours And Have Been Friends For What Seems Like A Lifetime! YOU NEVER QUIT!! Be Strong As Always! I’m Coming To See You Soon!”
