Terry Funk is the son of Dory Funk, who was widely known as a professional wrestler, as well as a promoter; his brother is Dory, Jr., who is also a professional wrestler. He grew up in Hammond until the end of World War II, when he moved with his family to Amarillo, Texas, where he matriculated from high school. Afterwards, he continued his education at West Texas State University, where he was a member of the college football and amateur wrestling teams.

Thus, Funk’s professional wrestling career began in the mid- 1960s, when he started to compete alongside his brother. With the help of their father, who started Dory Funk Sr. promotion in Amarillo Texas, the two brothers soon became the best wrestlers that Amarillo had to offer. He then joined NWA and became NWA World Heavyweight Champion after defeating Jack Brisco in 1969, which certainly increased his net worth. He held the title for more than a year, defeating wrestlers including Dusty Rhodes, Carlos Rocha, Pat O` Connor, Giant Baba, before being defeated by Harley Race.

After that, Terry became a part of the WWF, and four years later, in 1989 he joined World Championship Wrestling, and became a member of the J-Tex Corporation. In the early 1990s he joined the Extreme Championship Wrestling, winning the ECW World Heavyweight Championship in 1997, by defeating Raven. His next big step came in 2000, when he won three WCW Hardcore Championships, as well as the WCW United States Heavyweight Championship, contributing further to his net worth. From 2002 to 2004, he was a regular top competitor for Major League Wrestling and Ring of Honor Wrestling. Later, he appeared for All Japan Pro Wrestling, mostly as a referee or ring enforcer, until he finaly retired in September 2016.

Thanks to his accomplishments in professional wrestling, Funk was inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame in 2009, together with his brother.

Apart from his career in the sports industry, Terry Funk is also recognized as a director of the documentary film “Beyond The Mat” (1999), about his wrestling career. Beside that, he tried himself as an actor, starring in such film and TV titles as “Paradise Alley” (1978), “Wildside” (1985), and “Over The Top” (1987), among others, all of which added a considerable amount to his wealth.

Speaking about his personal life, Terry Funk has been married to Vicki Ann Weaver since 1965; the couple has two daughters together. His current residence is still in Amarillo, Texas.

#Quote
1[on how he made a name for himself in Japan] How many times did they see Antonio Inoki stretching some dude on the front page compared to how many times they saw some idiot--me--bleeding a gusher with barbed wire wrapped around his throat?
2[on the riots that would start after his matches ended] The riots were a form of flattery. The greatest thing for a bad guy wrestler is to do your job so well that someone wants to kill you. What could be more wonderful?
3[on why he refused to press charges against fans who tried to injure or kill him] I mean, do I want to put someone in jail because I convinced him or her that I needed to die? That's how I look at it and that may be sick, but it's also beautiful.
