One of the greats. Wasn't there a story about Flair being afraid to wrestle Harley once until Harley promised not to hurt him?

Rip.  One of the greats.  I always loved what Foley said about him on one of those Legends Roundtables.  Foley says Harley would say if he hit a man with his left and and he didn't go down then he would walk around the man to see what was holding him up.

A good friends of mine was one of the first graduates of Harley's school.  He's told me that Harley hasn't recognized him sporadically over the past few years, having good days and bad days.

Interesting story that I have no idea is true, butblistening to a cornette podcast. Race was called the king Harley Race only due to the fact they were running shows in Memphis and they would put top billing 9n the house shows in Memphis as "the KING to compete" or "the KING vs koko b ware" to try to make people think it was Jerry Lawler.

Legendary, legit toughguy....allegedly nobody in the business fucked with him.

Saw him wrestle Bob Backlund at MSG in 1980 (?) as a kid after following him in the wrestling mags....

This eserves to be acknowledged here.

 

From Trevor Murdoch's Facebook page:
 

I just wanted to put this out there. Harley needed to be transferred from Atlanta to St.Louis. He needed to take a Med flight because he was in rough shape. Medicare wouldn’t help him. A call was made to WWE and 10 mins later it was paid in full. Vince McMahon never blinked an eye. He wanted to make sure Harley was taken care of.

Thank you Vince, you gave me 2 more days with Harley.
