Summaries and Reviews
Summary
The professional wrestler shares his life story, career highlights, and unusual experiences both in and out of the ring.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: A true legend, Harley Race has enjoyed almost unparalleled success in the world of professional wrestling. Having turned pro in 1959 at the age of 15, his work ethic and innovative style allowed him to become one of the three biggest names in wrestling during the 1970s and early '80s. He won the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) championship on eight occasions and was dubbed World Wrestling Entertainment's first "King of the Ring" in 1986. In the autobiography King of the Ring, Harley Race tells his incredible life story for the first time.

In addition to his legendary ring career, Harley Race also became a successful promoter in the Midwest during the mid '80s with a wrestling organization seen on 13 television stations covering five states. Although injuries and a car accident in 1995 effectively ended his wrestling career, he decided to give back to the sport he loved. Race opened the World League Wrestling (WLW) organization in 1999, which serves both as a training camp and as a touring organization for young wrestlers.

King of the Ring explores Race's life and career, both in and out of the ring, detailing everything from the grind of traveling 300 days a year to the glory of being a world champion. From the pitfalls and vices associated with professional wrestling to overcoming careerthreatening injuries and the death of his first wife, the Harley Race readers will meet in King of the Ring is as candid as he is successful.
