“Right now, it’s the legs that are bothering me,” said Race. “I’m sitting here now with two legs that aren’t very good. They’re in route to recovery, and I’m right along with them. In a little amount of time, I’ll be up walking again.”
One of the common criticisms of today’s product is that the title belts are simply props, and don’t have the meaning that they once did. Race says that when he was the champion, he tried to live that way in every aspect of his life.
“I was world’s champion in every aspect of the life,” said Race. “Whether it was sitting in a steak house eating a steak or getting onto the edge of the ring with two or three people standing there, it was all the same to me. I was world’s champion and for that reason, I was world’s champion.”
To this day, fans continue to support the Hall of Famer, and he grateful for all of them.
“That means so much to me, it sure does,” said Race. “I’d like to thank each and every one of them for their support, and I promise them I will be back when I can stand and talk to people face-to-face. I will be back.”
