Various media outlets are reporting today that 8-time NWA World Champion and WWE Hall of Famer Harley Race has passed away at age 76 following a battle with lung cancer.
We had reported last month that Race was hospitalized following a medical scare, however no reason was provided on what the cause of the scare was.
On behalf of the staff of Wrestleview, we send our condolences to the family of Harley Race during this difficult time.
Below is a post from Harley Race’s Twitter account confirming Race’s passing.
Today at 12:50, we lost the man that fought up until the very last of his existence. More information will be released soon, but just know that he loved pro-wrestling and the fans that loved him.
Harley Race, we love you
