Harley Race has broken both his legs in a fall.

WWE Hall of Famer Harley Race has reportedly broken both his legs in a fall this past Tuesday.

WWE revealed the incident involving Harley Race, who suffered injuries after a fall at his home in Troy, Missouri.

Race is world renowned as a legendary professional wrestling competitor, having wrestled for several notable organizations including the AWA, NWA, WCW and WWE.

Harley Race is highly respected for the in-ring prowess he showed over the course of his long and storied career.

He was a huge fan of professional wrestling as a child and began training as a teenager in hopes of becoming a professional wrestler.

The 74 year old apparently suffered a fractured right femur, breaks in his left tibia and fibula, as well as a spiral break of his left ankle.

Race underwent an emergency surgery late Tuesday night so as to relieve the swelling in his legs.

The WWE Hall of Famer also received 4 blood transfusions, besides undergoing another surgery on Friday in order to rehabilitate his fractures.

The WWE addressed the unfortunate incident on its official website, wishing Race the best on his path to recovery.

Harley Race presently serves as a professional wrestling trainer and promoter. Further details of his recovery will be revealed in the days to come.

The Wrestling-Edge community wishes Harley Race a quick and healthy recovery.

    I was just wondering how he was doing lately. Things keep getting worse I see 🙁 Harley’s tough as hell, if anybody could get through this at 74 it’s him.

    He broke his femur, which is the biggest bone in your body. It’s also very vascular which is also why he needed​ a blood transfusion.

    Hope he gets better soon. But I got to ask why would he need blood transfusions for this? I hope there wasn’t some carelessness in surgery that will lead to further complications
