Many of you must be asking yourself a simple question: What the heck is "Funaki Mode"? I like to use the term "Funaki Mode" as a substitute for long time jobber.
There are the local jobbers that people like Umaga and Valdimir Kozlov battled to gain a repuation.
After them, there are the wrestlers who are in "Funaki Mode," named after maybe the most well known long time jobber, Funaki.
WWE tried to resurrect anything possible in Funaki with his "Kung Fu Naki" gimmick, but ultimately he was future endeavored.
There are a few wrestlers today that are in Funaki Mode, including Gold Dust and "The Masterpiece" Chris Masters.
Recently I looked at the WWE rosters and found 10 superstars that are in threat of falling into "Funaki Mode" by looking at their recent storylines and matches.
