For the past few years I've read a lot about this term funk but don't really understand what it is. Is funk what we used to call scrambling? Is a guy who executes some unpredictable unorthodox move in any situation using funk?
I've watched as funk seems to have risen out of nowhere into some new style. Aside from Askren, whom I see as a very solid and fundamental wrestler who scrambles much better than others, who else is a funk master and why? Rico Chip was a slippery, dangerous wrestler who could take you to your back from any postiion; was he using funk? Kendal Cross? Metcalf? Just what is this mysterious and magical thing called funk anyway?
