Watch Terry and Dory Funk vs Joe and Dean Malenko from Japan

Funk's Corner - Second Generation Legend and WWE Producer, Dean Malenko came to the Funking Conservatory to scout wrestling talent for World Wrestling Entertainment.

"You have the most beautiful country I have ever seen. The people are wonderful. The beaches are the best in the world and nature in your country is untouched."
"There is only one thing you don't have here in Australia. You have no heroes. No role models for your children and young people to look up to." 
"I, The Great Malenko will fill the emptiness you all have here in Australia. I will be your hero."
As I listened to Boris Malenko do the interview for network television out of Sydney, Australia, I thought, "What a great way to get the heat as a heel and not have to put the country or the people down."
Boris Malenko was one of the greatest heels on interviews I have seen. He was also a box office attraction for Eddie Graham in the Florida Territory. Boris Malenko was the originator of the Russian Chain match.
Boris Malenko's chain used in a match in Florida with Eddie Graham was actually shipped from Florida to the Amarillo Territory and used in the first ever Russian Chain Match in the Amarillo Territory between Dory Funk Sr. and Iron Mike Dibiase.
Boris Malenko (Larry Simon) had two sons who followed his footsteps in professional wrestling, Dean and Joe Malenko.
Second generation wrestler, Wrestling Legend and WWE Producer, Dean Malenko came to the Funking Conservatory to scout wrestling talent.
Support the Troops 20, "Funking Fall Fight" comes to the Funking Conservatory Sunday September 30. For more information on tickets, training schedules - call 352-895-4658 or visit our website at
