As we reported earlier this morning here on eWn, pro wrestling legend Terry Funk is currently dealing with dementia and is in a residential care facility for “his multiple health issues, which do affect his mind as well as the rest of his body,” this according to a statement that was issued by his family.
Following the news of Funk’s condition coming out, many current and former Superstars took to Twitter to comment. WWE and the NWA also issued statements.

Praying for Terry. I’ve been blessed to share a lockerroom for several years with Terry Funk in ECW. He was always so helpful, honest & great to lean on for advice. Not just an AMAZING Pro Wrestler but just a super guy! This photo is from Double Cross Ranch in Amarillo around ‘96 https://t.co/1xDBeZ7DE8 pic.twitter.com/GU3eTfZz2W
