* NightmareFuel /{{Squick}}: His Barbed Wire Rope Match against Wrestling/{{Sabu}} at Wrestling/{{ECW}}'s ''Born to be Wired'' event, even though Sabu's gash-in-the-arm was more notable than what Terry suffered. Wrestling/PaulHeyman didn't want anybody in ECW trying another Barbed Wire Rope match because he didn't think it could be topped and didn't want to see anybody else ''try'', but Shane Douglas booked a Barbed Wire Three-Way-Dance between Sabu, Funk, and himself for ''Hardcore Homecoming'' - and it was just as disturbingly brilliant as the original.

* FairForItsDay / ValuesDissonance: Funks (Westerners) versus Briscos (Native Americans, although they didn't {{Cosplay}} their heritage). Having a feud that's essentially a ProWrestling version of CowboysAndIndians, even without the costumes, might not work so well in the 21st century. (The feud was started around a little before or after the 1973 Academy Awards where [[{{Creator/MarlonBrando}} Marlon Brando]] refused his ''Best Actor'' Oscar for ''Film/TheGodfather'' to protest the American film and television industry's treatment of the Native Americans, as well as the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wounded_Knee_incident 1973 Wounded Knee incident]].

* TearJerker: His ''first'' retirement in 1983 in Japan. "FOREVER! FOREVER!" Even with the subversion of this trope with future "retirements", some fans do get teary when seeing that moment replayed.
