• Harley Race Still Hospitalized, Refusing To ‘Throw In The Towel’

According to PWInsider, WWE Hall of Famer Harley Race was scheduled to appear at the Knoxville Fan Expo this weekend, but he couldn’t make the appearance as he is currently hospitalized.

Harley has lung cancer and showed some signs that he needed to see the doctors and was eventually hospitalized.

Harley’s Twitter account provided the following update:

“Just a quick update on Mr. Race, he is still at the hospital under doctors care. There isn’t any time table for any situation as his health is of utmost priority. We will be releasing more info later this afternoon. Thanks to everyone for their concern and continue the thoughts.”

Harley’s World League Wrestling promotion’s Instagram page noted that Harley is still hospitalized and he refuses to ‘throw in the towel’:

“An update that have been wanting to know about in regards to the boss’s situation over the weekend.

This past weekend, he was scheduled to attend the Knoxville Fanboy Expo. While traveling to Knoxville, he exhibited some signs that needed to be addressed by medical personnel. He has been in the hospital since Thursday evening and that’s where he currently is.

Due to privacy concerns, no specific information will be given out about his current health status or anything of the sort.

All that can and will be said is that Harley Race was, is, and will always be a fighter. He doesn’t know anything else and he hasn’t thrown in the towel and he has promised that as long as it is up to him, that won’t be an option. His health is obviously top priority and with that being said, all of his upcoming appearances will be immediately cancelled. All promoters have been notified about the situation and we here are currently trying to come up with a solution to rectify the situation the best way possible.

Unfortunately, since this situation has taken place while traveling to a signing, he is currently in a hospital that is pretty far away from home that has his family there with him.

So, in an effort to help out with the un-expected expenses, we are selling t-shirts of which profits will be given directly to the situation.

The link to purchase the t-shirts is below. We appreciate the support whether or not you purchase a t-shirt. This is just a little extra help when it is needed. The price of the shirt that has an exclusive design for both front and back prints are $24.99 (plus S&H). All shirts are going to start to be shipped on August 9, 2019.

Regardless, please continue to support Harley Race, The Harley Race Wrestling Academy, and World League Wrestling.

All events and camps are going to take place as scheduled and we look forward to keeping it that way because that is what Harley Race would do.

We look forward to getting him back home and continuing to have the Greatest Wrestler on God’s Green Earth.”
