Two of the Greatest Ever "On the Face of God's Green Earth!"

Former NWA World Champions "Nature Boy" Ric Flair and "Handsome" Harley Race
What a great shot of two of the greatest champions to ever lace up the boots: Ric Flair and Harley Race.

When Harley was NWA World Champion, he would regularly say he had proven himself to be "the greatest wrestler on the face of God's green earth."


Later on, Race would declare that his long time rival (and friend) Ric Flair was the greatest wrestler in the history of the business.

We're happy just calling it a tie.

The wonderful photo was taken on August 29, 2015 in advance of World League Wrestling's "Night of Champions" event in tonight in Troy, MO.

That's Harley's personal replica of the domed-globe version of the NWA World title belt, better known as the "Ten Pounds of Gold."

Harley Race passed away on August 1, 2019.
