    I from Iowa and I remember Harley Race putting on shows and the guy I used to train withs ring and Harley would always help set up the ring and he always made his wrestlers help. He was a really nice guy, I’m sure he still is!

    Really interesting article on Harley Race. The fact that he’s still training students will keep that “old school” style alive and well. Which is definitely a very good thing.

    His original name in DSW was "Silverback", so far, it's been my favorite of his gimmicks. He was a babyface who destroyed everyone and did the whole beating on the chest thing. I know it sounds like just a typical big guy gimmick, but he had a real ring personality that made it work.

    Terminator Vs. The Funkasaurus!!! Sigh. Why do i have this feeling this is already booked for Wrestlemania in case the Goldberg/Lesnar Comeback angle plan falls through? ( My Bad!!!)
