Terry Funk or Randy Savage?

Hey Scott,

Long time fan blah blah blah…

I was wondering if you had any thoughts on who you think was better between Terry Funk and Randy Savage. I think it's an interesting question for a number of reasons: both great on the mic, both great babyfaces, both great heels, both great workers (could work the technical style well while also being able to work a distinct style of their own; Funk as a brawler, Savage as a high flyer), both drew money for many years (Funk more so in Japan, Savage certainly in the US), both highly regarded by their peers. To the best of my knowledge, I don't think they ever worked each other.

It may just come down to personal preference because these are all qualities you would look for in a wrestler – especially when people get into 'greatest of all time' talk, but I just wanted to get your thoughts. Maybe if you find this as interesting as I do, this could be something you could spread over to the board.

Thanks! Happy New Year!

Obviously I'm biased since Savage is one of my favorite wrestlers ever, so I'd go with him. I think Savage drew money on a much larger scale than Funk, although Funk probably did so over a longer period of time.
