Terrence "Terry" Funk (born June 30, 1944) is an American professional wrestler and actor known chiefly for the hardcore wrestling style he adopted in the latter part of his career that inspired many younger wrestlers, including Mick Foley. Funk has appeared in the NWA, AWA, IWF/E, WCW, ECW, USWA, ROH, and TNA.

Funk is a three time former world heavyweight champion, having held the NWA World Heavyweight Championship once, the USWA Unified World Heavyweight Championship once, and the XCW World Heavyweight Championship once (two reigns overall within the title's lineage due to his first reign as Eastern Championship Wrestling Heavyweight Champion). XCW later awarded him the honorary lifetime title of XCW Champion due to his contributions to the promotion. He is the only man to have been inducted into the IWE Hall of Fame, the WCW Hall of Fame, the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame, the NWA Hall of Fame, the Hardcore Hall of Fame, and the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Hall of Fame. Funk was a primary subject of the documentary film Beyond the Mat. Funk is often noted for the longevity of his career, which has included multiple "retirement" matches.
