Teddy Long recently shared memories of the late, great Terry Funk. Funk passed away late last month, and Long talked about his relationship with the icon on Sportskeeda’s Wrestling Time Machine. Highlights are below, per wrestling Inc:

On his relationship with Funk: “Terry was one of the guys that definitely looked out for me back in the day. Had a lot of fun with him when we did the thing we called ‘Funk’s Grill.’ So I made a couple of appearances in ‘Funk’s Grill,’ me and ‘Mean’ Mark Callous before he was ever The Undertaker, so I just had so much fun with Terry, man.”

On staying in touch with Funk: “I did talk to him over the years. He’s one of the guys that I always wish a Merry Christmas to, and I did talk to him during… while he was a heel and stuff, so we had conversations. So I always wanted to let him know I’d never forgot him and I was always thinking about him.”
