Harley Race's Training Camp

UPDATED! Lots of new pics as you scroll down. I'll keep updating until I leave!

Check out my buddy Dick Bourne's book "Ten Pounds of Gold" up in the case with Harley's replica!
I need one of these at Highspots

This is the Halliburton suitcase that Harley carried the NWA world title belt around in.

Monthly Greeting - June 2016

JUNE 2016

"Summertime is for Steamboat & Youngblood!" 

Oh man if I could see Ricky wear that Hawaiian lay out on that beach one more time! Or Ricky hold Jay high up in the air and drop him on Jerry Brisco!

I know, I am a few days late with my updates but something came up . . . . LIFE!

Wow, this year is flying by so fast. Christmas will be here in 6 months. Jesus was so good to me this past weekend. I got to take one of my twins to see my favorite band of all time, "Journey".  It was so great. They drew 19,000 people who all tried to out sing me on "Don't stop Believin'', but it didn't work! Scarlet had the best time. I made those poor kids listen to so much Journey when they were young that they thought Steve Perry was a uncle. We also went the next day and did a birthday party for a sweet 8 yr. old boy in High Point, N.C.  So by the time I got back to the Headlock Ranch, I felt like I just worked with Dick Slater again!

  • My wrestling school is doing so great. Tessa Blanchard will be returning to Japan soon so I am very excited for her. 
  • This month I get to be a guest trainer for Harley Race at his wrestling academy in Missouri. God is so good to me. Everything I have or am, is because of Him. 
  • My 2nd greatest book ever written still makes me so proud as I continue to get emails from all over the world telling me how much it has blessed them. I owe Mark James everything. He is the reason that book got finished.
  • I just heard today that long time NWA wrestler Danny Miller passed away today. Danny was a great guy who I met several times and always loved talking about wrestling. 
  • A belated happy birthday to Brad Armstrong's daughter Jillian!

My Dallas Cowboys are beginning to make some noise there in Texas. I cant wait! My new T.O. jersey is burning a hole in my closet. Me and the Mid-Atlantic Gateway going to eat some wings!

"Stupid people are NUTS!!" A guy wrote me 42 times and asked about the birthday parties I do. He told me all the bull crap about him and his son loving wrestling and that a birthday party would just be the greatest thing! I mean, 42 times he contacted me! Well, I finally wrote him back and gave him a price. Yes, a price! Oh, you thought we just loaded up a ring, my guys come and wrestle and it's FREE?? WHAT????  Well, that idiot must have to, as I haven't heard one word since I sent the info to him! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah Ole Anderson, I need a hug!

Well got to go. Today is also Makayla's last lunch with me as a 3rd grader. Got to get my crying done before I walk in the lunch room.

If I can rent you a ring or sell you a canvas, just let me know. See you in a few weeks.  God Bless!

- George

Don't Stop Believin'

Just dropped off Scarlet and watching her walk in. Has not gotten any easier.

In l980, the very first road trip I ever made was with Sonny Fargo & Buzz Tyler. I was put in the back seat and knew to keep my mouth shut. On that trip I heard JOURNEY for the first time. For the last 40 years I have tried to recapture that special time. Tonight, with the wind blowing, and my beautiful twin daughter Scarlet standing beside me, we joined 19,000 friends as that same band sang "Don't Stop Believin'" and gave me back that special day!!

Thank you Chad & Vicky Adams for one of the greatest nights a Dad could have with his little girl!

Please watch this Facebook video Chad posted!
