Pro wrestling legend Harley Race broke both of his legs in a fall earlier this week.
WWE.com reported today that Race fell at his home in Troy, Missouri on Tuesday. He underwent immediate surgery that night to relieve the swelling in his legs and has since received four blood transfusions and had another surgery yesterday to reset the fractures.
As a result of the fall, Race “sustained a fracture to his right femur and suffered breaks in his left fibula and tibia, as well as a spiral break of his left ankle.”
Race turned 74 years old in April. He attended an NXT house show in Missouri earlier this year, with WWE posting an article about him reuniting with Tommaso Ciampa at the event. Ciampa previously trained with Race and worked for his World League Wrestling promotion.
Ciampa tweeted a message of support to Race: “My thoughts and prayers are with Harley Race and his loved ones…”
