The rumors are true: Harley Race is officially out and Bob Backlund is in for this Saturday’s Big Event XI. Here’s a statement posted on the Big Event Facebook page:
BOB BACKLUND ADDED IN PLACE OF HARLEY RACE
Due to circumstances beyond our control Harley Race will not be able to attend the Current Big Event. We will be hoping that he can make the March 4th one. To make up for this we will be having Hall of Famer Bob Backlund. For those that pre purchased tickets we will be offering a few options.
Tickets can be exchanged evenly for Bob Backlund or Bruno Samartino
Tickets can be exchanged for a signed Harley Race Photo.
Tickets can be saved for March 4th as we hope to have him for that show.
Of course a simple refund can be had as well.
