* FairForItsDay[=/=]ValuesDissonance: Funks (Westerners) versus Briscos (Native Americans, although they didn't {{Cosplay}} their heritage). Having a feud that's essentially a ProfessionalWrestling version of CowboysAndIndians, even without the costumes, might not work so well in the 21st century.

* [[AmericansHateTingle Puerto Rico Hates Terry Funk]]: Loathed in Puerto Rico.
* 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.
