Really sad to hear the passing of @8XNWAChampion
one of the greatest NWA Champions ever. He was a real man's man and one of the toughest guys I ever met. I loved watching him when he came to the Mid Atlantic area when I was a teen. He certainly made everything real. #RIPHarley pic.twitter.com/Ureia3aq9X

Thank you Harley. So many legends in the industry will tell you he was the toughest to ever do it. He never stopped giving. I remember when he managed Vader in wcw, he would still try and scare me backstage. Ten pounds of gold never looked better on anybody. https://t.co/Q1qq4qEeGT
