I like it. Had never seen anything like this done before. Had a nice 'shock value' at the time.

Obviously this could never be done today because it would offend the colored, pedos, and foot fetishists everywhere.

Maybe the loudest pop Aldo Marino ever got, when he drop-kicked Funk over the ropes.

You can see somebody (including a masked guy?) eventually come into to pick up Funk's serape and chaps... but what happened to the cowboy hat that started it all?!

How much more heat would there have been if the female ref tried to intervene and the Funker tossed her out of the ring?

A funny note to this, at one of the late 1985 MSG cards, Phillips was doing the same gimmick (ring attendant). I think this was the Funk vs. Mr Wrestling II card. Funk saw him reach for his shit, and Funk chased him back to the dressing room. Love that continuity in the storyline.

Absolutely love this, and I loved it then too. I was 14 when this happened and only knew Funk from the magazines because he was for all intents and purposes “retired” and in Hollywood after his farewell match in Japan until he came to the WWF in ‘85. I thought it was the perfect way to introduce himself to the WWF crowd. And all these years later, knowing all I know about Terry Funk, it was great to see him sell for Marino and take a huge bump to lure the crowd into thinking Aldo actually had a chance instead of just squashing him...he did that with everyone.

As a side note, I used to sell Mel Phillips boxes of hose clamps on a regular basis, at least 4-6 Times a year that he used to put the rings together right up until he got in trouble for grabbing young cocks.

Love this. The ref should have taken a bump as well. Would have made it complete.

Aldo Marino later more prolific as Ricky Santana FYI.
