Terry Funk with Les Thatcher

In 1976, Les Thatcher conducted a number of promotional interviews with NWA World Heavyweight champion Terry Funk which would appear later during the "halftime" interview slot in the Mid-Atlantic and Wide World Wrestling TV shows. The promos would only be seen in markets where Funk was set to defend the NWA title. At that time his number one challengers in the Mid-Atlantic territory were Paul Jones and Wahoo McDaniel.
