The wrestling world is reeling after two greats died this past week. On Wednesday, WWE Hall of Famer Terry Funk died at 79. Then, just a day later, fans were rocked by the sudden death of Bray Wyatt. He was just 36 years old.
This week, Chad Smart and I pay tribute to both men and share memories of each.

The annual Cape Comic Con was held this past weekend in Cape Girardeau, MO. Two of the featured guests were WWE Hall of Famers Terry Funk and “Cowboy” Bob Orton.
These two legends held a Q&A discussion, taking questions from the audience. Favorite matches, Cowboy Bob Orton’s Wrestlemania I experience, their favorite ribs, the evolution of the business, and sharing their love of the industry with their family.
Then they took pictures with the fans in the panel before returning to their booth. They held another meet & greet before the Wrestling at the Arena later Saturday evening.
