On January 25th 1993 in met a great man who became a great friend and mentor. A proper man in and out of the ring. One of the true greats. Harley Race passed today. I will be forever grateful for the time I’ve spent with him.

#RIP Harley Race. This is why we should not throw the term Legend around freely. It needs to be saved for people like Harley who truly are.

RIP Harley Race. In a day and age where real men seem to be an endangered species, he embodied every bit of the word “real” in and out of the ring. A rough, tough man and a gentleman. Honored to have known him. Godspeed. #RIPHarley

Really sad to hear the passing of @8XNWAChampion
one of the greatest NWA Champions ever. He was a real man's man and one of the toughest guys I ever met. I loved watching him when he came to the Mid Atlantic area when I was a teen. He certainly made everything real. #RIPHarley pic.twitter.com/Ureia3aq9X

Thank you Harley. So many legends in the industry will tell you he was the toughest to ever do it. He never stopped giving. I remember when he managed Vader in wcw, he would still try and scare me backstage. Ten pounds of gold never looked better on anybody. https://t.co/Q1qq4qEeGT

Godspeed, Harley Race. When I wore the “ten pounds of gold”, in my head I was you. Of course I could never hold a candle to you, but your example inspired me to try my damndest. I’m grateful for the time we shared, and I thank you forever for paving the way. Rest well, King. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/Yf3lr4lnJk
