[WWE News] In his latest blog, Tommy Dreamer talked about Terry Funk becoming the first former ECW Champion to be inducted into the Hall of Fame: “He gave me my greatest advice ever when I was struggling in the early days of ECW… Terry sat me down and said just be yourself out there. Just be Tommy and the fans will respect you. I haven’t stopped being me and it is an honor to have a new wing in the WWE Hall of Fame opened, the ECW World Champions section and it will start with Terry Funk being where he belongs. I take great pride that I had the opportunity to share a locker room in the Original ECW with the great Terry Funk!” Tazz and Joey Styles also blogged about Funk’s induction at WWE.com..
