From the Archives: Terry Funk vs. Bruiser Brody

Today is a momentous day in wrestling history, as it was the day that Terry Funk, one of the finest pro wrestlers of all-time, entered this world. In fact, today is the Funker's 70th birthday, and he doesn't seem to be slowing down too much with accepting dates to wrestle. God bless that man. Anyway, this week's sampling is a match from when Funk was closer to his prime over 30 years ago against a man whose ability to celebrate birthdays was robbed from him before that decade was over. Bruiser Brody is the opponent. All-Japan Pro Wrestling is the promotion. Celebrate Funk's anniversary of birth with this match from the Rudo Reels "Legacy of Bruiser Brody" set, and hey, if you like this match, head on over there and pick it up (or any other wrestling comps he may have).
