Harley Race has died...
« on: August 02, 2019, 12:43:46 PM »
Harley Race, an eight-time National Wrestling Alliance world heavyweight champion, died Thursday following health complications. He was 76.

Race was surrounded by his partner, Rose, family and friends at the hospital in St. Charles, Missouri, when he passed away, his son Jason, told CNN.

"He kept fighting till the end," Jason said. "He is the most genuine human being I know. I don't even think he knew the impact he has had on others."

RIP to one of the greatest wrestling legends and NWA classics.

He had the "I'm tough" look down pat.

Yes and he looked 50 years old at 20.  Probably someone who didn't take shit from anybody.  I wonder if Ric Flair will be at his funeral, they had some epic battles in the Missouri territory and the rest of the NWA.  RIP champ.

He pulled a gun on Hogan in the mid eighties.
