Hardcore but Humble
I would recommend this audio book to anybody regardless if they are a fan of wrestling. Terry Funk's journey through wrestling took him all over the world and his experiences are one of a kind.
Terry Funk gives many examples of how wrestlers would "rib" or play pranks on random strangers during road trips. The stories would make you cringe in disbelief or laugh uncontrollably,
Jeremy made me forget that Terry Funk was not the one reading to me. He was great.
This story was not about a wrestler who lost everything and had a happy ending. This is about a normal man from Texas that had an amazing career in wrestling, battled difficulties and still managed to stay humble along the way.
Great listen for a wrestling fan
