Apparently Dustin Rhodes mentioned that there's a prayer chain going for Terry right now.

I had heard months ago that Funk mentally and physically really isn’t there anymore. It’s been a long decline.

I heard since his wife passed, he really hasn’t cared all that much about living. So, he also pretty much checked out emotionally. And he is too worn out to travel anymore and pretty much all of his gigs would be east coast. I would bet money if he could work he would have a semi-regular gig with AEW or Impact just because of how many friends he has. Tommy Dreamer would do anything for the man.

Funk posted a video on Twitter a few days asking people not to send him any more pictures to autograph.

https://twitter.com/TheDirtyFunker/status/1357089707214188548

Here is the transcript:

"Hi, I'm Terry Funk. I'm an old man and I'm tired and I truly, truly mean that. So please stop sending me pictures to autograph, cause I'm getting lame-brained. That means goofy. And please, I'd appreciate it if you didn't send any more pictures of me for me to sign."

The video is only 40 seconds long, and you can see that he even repeated himself in that short time. I hope that those praying for him are praying for him to find peace, and not just that he doesn't die yet.

I want Terry Funk to live forever. He will always be my favorite of all time. But I've seen both side of what he seems to be going through in my family. My mother's mother just gave up after her husband died, and she seemed to be very healthy at 62. My other grandmother spend the last 6 years of her life having very little idea of what was going on. I wouldn't wish either of those deteriorations on anyone.

On the other hand, taking the Ringo Starr reference into account, Ringo is still with us. So maybe Funk is just tired and needs the time to train for one last run at the NWA title.

Dustin Rhodes said on Twitter that He got off the phone with Terry he said he was in a lot of pain.

Think in January Funk did one of those "Sign It Live events of Highspots

Just to clarify guys, Terry Funk is just in severe pain with his hip. He is a tough SOB.
