He didn't just SAY that he was the "Greatest Wrestler On God's Green Earth", he truly WAS the "Greatest Wrestler On God's Green Earth" for a very long time. It was a real privilege to grow up watching him on "Wrestling At The Chase" as either NWA World Champion or Missouri State Champion. Watching a Harley Race match is watching a master artist of his craft. When I think of "Professional Wrestling", I think of "Handsome" Harley Race. RIP to the "Greatest Wrestler On God's Green Earth"--Handsome Harley Race.
That is part of what attracted me to wrestling. I remember going on a flight to Hawaii from California in the early 80s and at the newsstand at the airt was a wrestling magazine. On the cover was a photo from a Harley Race vs Ric Flair match I was hooked after reading it. I asked my mom to but it she did and I read it twice on the flight such fond memories.

Been away at a music festival when he died . Just got back home now . Sadly I only saw Harley Race from his WWF King days then WCW managing Vader etc . I missed his better wrestling days . What a legend R.I.P
In Heaven there must be some better matches , than we currently see on Raw/Smackdown every week ?
