The eight-time former NWA World Champion was hospitalized in Atlanta close to a week ago, and needed to be transferred to St. Louis. He required a Med flight to accommodate him due to his deteriorating health, but Medicare would not cover the cost of the flight.
"I just wanted to put this out there. He needed to take a Med flight because he was in rough shape. Medicare wouldn’t help him," Murdoch wrote. "A call was made to WWE and 10 mins later it was paid in full. Vince McMahon never blinked an eye. He wanted to make sure Harley was taken care of. Thank you Vince, you gave me 2 more days with Harley."
Race died in St. Charles, MO on Thursday from lung cancer, at the age of 76.
