As I noted in my coverage of House of Hardcore, Terry Funk, one of the all time best performers in the history of professional wrestling (and, full disclosure here, one of my personal heroes), will not be appearing in the main event where he was scheduled to be in Tommy Dreamer's corner.

As Dreamer announced, Funk is dealing with some serious health issues and was feeling very dizzy and has left the 2300 Arena.  He was actually told to not get in the ring but ignored the doctors and wanted to get in the ring in case it was the last time he's here at the Arena.  Honestly, Funk probably should not have even flown up North from Texas to begin with, but he's Terry Funk and he's a crazy old man.  His work ethic is legend and I respect and love that but it was obvious he wasn't feeling well at all.  

Funk made it clear when he was in the ring that he didn't want to get out because he was afraid it would be the last time he stepped into the 2300/ECW Arena.  He was given an amazing ovation from the crowd live and it was a really special moment, but I don't think the audience truly realized that something serious is going on with Funk.

I just wanted to take a moment to wish Terry Funk the best with his medical issues when he returns home to Texas.  He's given so much for the wrestling business and it's only fair to give him that love and respect when he certainly can use the support.    Get well soon Terry.  There will never be another like you, ever.
