IN THIS EPISODE

When people think of a legend, a lot may think of Harley Race.

Known as a legitimate guy you didn’t want to fuck with, Race would have classics with all of the well-known guys from the 70s and 80s. Like Ric Flair, Wahoo McDaniel, and… Terry Funk.

Race wrestled in the National Wrestling Alliance, the American Wrestling Association, the World Wrestling Federation, and World Championship Wrestling. He was a nine-time world champion, having won the WWA World Heavyweight Championship once and the NWA World Heavyweight Championship eight times, and was the first NWA United States Heavyweight Champion.

Race is one of six men to have been inducted into each of the WWE Hall of Fame, the NWA Hall of Fame, the WCW Hall of Fame, the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame, and the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Hall of Fame.

Today we look at his Best Two-Out-Of-Three Falls match against Terry Funk in July of 1977.
