By Andrew Pritchard

Jones conducted the interview. These are just highlights please head on over to InYourHeadOnline.com for the full interview.
Right off the bat Jack asked Dory what it meant to him to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. “It’s a tremendous honour to me, to be recognized by World Wrestling Entertainment.” “It’s a real privilege and I’m looking forward to it.”
Jack asked Dory how it was to go to the WWF after being NWA Champion for so long. “I had a fabulous time.” “It was much like the schedule I had as NWA World Champion.” “Working for Vince McMahon was an honour.”
Jack asked about the advantages of training in the Funkin’ Conservatory rather than any other training school. “We have developed a system of marketing through our “Bang” TV Show.” “Everybody who has trained at Funkin’ Conservatory, makes an appearance on Bang TV.” “I think our television situation offers an advantage.” “We’re not here to eliminate people, we’re here to help people accomplish their goals.”
Jack asked how training has changed since Dory was trained. “I was trained by my father Dory Funk Sr. he had a very unique wrestling style.” “Every night I wrestled I learned from somebody.” “Today its, what can you do for the company you’re gonna work for. Can you draw wrestling fans can you sell marketing products.”
Dory was asked if Dusty Rhodes was a good choice to be inducting him. “I think it’s a fabulous choice.” “He was a tremendous superstar all over the world, he’s a former NWA World Champion, I had some great Wrestling matches with him and I think it‘s the right combination to reach out to the wrestling fans to give them what they want to see.”
