Former WWE Superstar CM Punk recently appeared on the 31 Thoughts podcast and discussed a string of topics. Punk revealed that he is about to get a Harley Race tattoo, as the WWE Legend had a huge impact on his career.

Harley Race' legendary career

Harley Race doesn't need an introduction. The WWE Hall of Famer is widely regarded as one of the absolute best to ever step foot inside the squared circle. After garnering success in AWA and NWA, Race made his way to WWE and had a three-year stint in the Federation. Initially, he debuted as 'Handsome' Harley Race, and was managed by Bobby "The Brain" Heenan. His King of the Ring victory led to a gimmick change and he got a new moniker in 'King' Harley Race.
