!BANG! TV Report – Ric Flair vs Dory Funk Jr.
Jan 15, 2011 - by Dory Funk Jr.
During my days as Booker for Eddie Graham in the Florida Territory, Ric Flair had just finished a world heavyweight championship match against Hacksaw, Butch Reed. The match went to a 60 minute draw. At the end of the match Flair was bleeding from the forehead so much that all his blond hair had turned red.
There were two dressing rooms at the top of the stairs in the old Tampa Armory, one on each side of the stairs. (One for the Bad Guys and one for the Good Guys)
The match was over and I spoke to Hacksaw congratulating him on a great wrestling match then walked to the other dressing room. As I entered the door, Ric Flair and Eddie Graham were sitting each on a folding steel chair talking.
You would think this was two normal people having a business conversation except for the fact that Ric Flair was dripping blood from a cut in his forehead and his hair was crimson red.
I looked at them both and said, “Ric, Thank you. Nobody gives more for this business than you do.”
Ric Flair looked up at me and said, “It’s my job.”
