Number 37: No Holds Barred, Falls Count Anywhere Match Mick Foley defeated Terry Funk May 4, 1998
The story of Mick Foley and Terry Funk's demented camaraderie could be told in scars and skin grafts. Beginning in the bizarre world of Japense "Death Matches" in the early 90's, The Hardcore Legend and the 'middle-aged and crazy" WWE Hall of Famer developed a mutual admiration while abusing one another with barbwire, beds of nails and, on one particularly twisted evening, C-4 explosives.
In WWE, the longtime rivals formed a championship team, but the friends were forced to battle once again in a No Holds Barred, Falls Count Anywhere Match by Mr. McMahon. With stoolie Pat Patterson overseeing the action, Foley and his 53-year old opponent tested one another's pain threshold on the steeled entrance ramp and throughout the concrete tunnels of the arena. Ultimately, after slamming his idol through a table, Foley beat Funk by piledriving him onto a steel chair, proving just how far The Hardcore Legend was sometimes willing to go to see his hand raised.
