WWE legend Harley Race 'diagnosed with terminal cancer', reveals Ric Flair
2nd March 2019

The 75-year-old wrestling legend has been battling a number of health problems over recent years.

He broke both legs during a fall back in 2017, but now he faces a fight for life.

The “Nature Boy” revealed the devastating news during a Q&A session with “Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, Jersey.

Flair said: “Race broke both of his legs in the fall and had to undergo emergency surgery to alleviate swelling.

“In all, he suffered a fracture in his right tibia, breaks in his left tibia and fibula, and a spiral fracture in his left ankle.

“Race received four blood transfusions over the course of the week, and underwent additional surgery on Friday to reset all of the fractures.”

Veteran Flair, who overcame his own life-threatening battle with illness to get married last year, then revealed his friend had been diagnosed with lung cancer, reported blogger Jay Alletto from the event.

Despite the 16-time world champion’s comments, there is still no official confirmation of the cancer from the many regard as “the best professional wrestler of all time”.

Race is one of the most-decorated performers to ever compete in the business, holding the NWA Heavyweight Championship on seven occasions.

He is one of just six men inducted into each of the WWE Hall of Fame, the NWA Hall of Fame, the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame, and the Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s Hall of Fame.

Despite these sad reports, Race did make an appearance at a wrestling event last weekend.

He was at an independent show in Akron, Ohio, and is still scheduled to be at an event for his promotion World League Wrestling on March 19 in St. Louis.
