Harley on what it meant to be NWA World Heavyweight Champion:

“Well at that point in time you were considered to be the top wrestler in the world. I was lucky enough to have that honor 8 different times. I wonder if I should’ve said I was lucky enough or good enough which one of those works the best (while laughing).”

Harley on his toughest reign as NWA World Champion:

“Well I suppose my toughest reign was the last time around I was getting up in years and the young guys coming against me. At different times in your life you pay the price for being there (being the World Champ).”

Harley on his toughest opponents:

“Oh gosh it was several of them back then it’s almost impossible to give you a person. At that point in time wrestling was really starting to pick up worldwide. Way back Lou Thesz was as tough as tough got then you had Dick the Bruiser and The Crusher…”
