Harold Lawson, a Westmoreland Care & Rehabilitation elder, was a professional wrestler for the National Wrestling Association (NWA), and wrestled for a living from 1959-1961. He wrestled in Chattanooga, Nashville, Knoxville, North Carolina, and Georgia for two years.

The Bear Always Wins

During his wrestling career, Harold’s most memorable experience was wrestling a bear once a month for two years. A match that was always one sided.

“The bear always wins,” he said. But Harold saw it more as playtime than a fight for his life.

Each time Harold stepped into the ring with a bear, he was paid a base rate of $224.50. A slightly higher rate than wrestling a person at $212 per match. A risk Harold considered well worth the extra $12.50.

Bobby LittleOn Nov. 29, 2014, Mr. Bobby Little was at home in the evening watching TV when he noticed something was not right and immediately called his wife on his cell phone. After the call, Bobby called 911 to tell them he thought he was having a stroke.

Mr. Little had been active and lived independently up until that night; he had never been sick. He was transported to Hendersonville, and then on to TriStar Skyline Medical Center, where he stayed until December 16. That day, Bobby was welcomed to Westmoreland Care & Rehabilitation Center for rehab and skilled nursing services, with the goal of returning to prior independence and back home to his wife.
