All Elite Wrestling recently issued a statement saying that WWE Hall Of Famer Harley Race has passed away at the age of 76. Harley Race passing away has yet to be confirmed by WWE or any Twitter account linked to his World League Wrestling Promotion, but updates will be provided once it is made available.
It was noted this past month that Harley Race was hospitalized for more than a week due to complications he had with his health from travelling to Knoxville, Tennessee for a fan convention. All bookings he had from there on out would then be cancelled. At the end of July, Harley Race was reportedly back in his home. Back in March, Harley Race reportedly confirmed that he was battling lung cancer. You can check out AEW’s full Twitter post below:
