Working Man's Payday

Dory Funk Jr. vs Mike Davis, 22 September 1982 (Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling)

It is payday. I thought I'd celebrate with a salute to one of the all-time great heels working one of the all-time great jobbers. It's a short match. It lasts just about as long as my paycheck usually does. The angle here is that Funk (41, 6'2", 240#) offers Davis (25, 5'11", 233#) $100,000 if Davis is able to pin Funk's shoulders to the mat for a three-count, NWA rules prevailing, with a 10-minute time limit. It's big money the like of which Mike has never seen. The hungry kid signs on the dotted line. The moral of the story is pretty well summed up in the GIF.


  1. Love a good forearm to a dude backed up in the corner!

    1. Me too! I'll take it over a double-biceps pose any day of the week.

    2. ... and I LOVE double-biceps poses.

  2. How about an elbow in the mouth?
