5 WWE Superstars who have released music albums
#2: Terry Funk
Terry Funk has had one of the longer careers when it comes to professional wrestlers of the past 50 years. While the documentary Beyond The Mat presented him as retiring over 20 years ago, Funk was part of yet another feud with Jerry "The King" Lawler last year.
In 1984, Funk was the recording artist behind the album Great Texan. Largely aimed at the Japanese market, Great Texan featured creative collaborations with Jimmy Hart. Among the tracks included on Great Texan are "Barbra Streisand's Nose," "We Hate School," and "Touch Your Heart (Sayonara Boku Ienai)."
Funk is not known to be particularly proud of his foray into music, however. As he noted in his autobiography from 2012, the album "contains some of the most godawful singing you've ever heard. Jimmy Hart wrote the songs for me because I was too cheap to pay for the rights to songs that people had already heard. All the songs on that album had one thing in common -- they all sucked."
On the brighter side of things, Terry Funk is still viewed as a pioneer within the world of professional wrestling, and he is one of the few performers to have achieved success within the WWE, WCW and ECW organizations.Modified 20 Dec 2019, 17:06 IST
