In a recent interview with Zak Ralph of Love Wrestling, Trevor Murdoch opened up about the tribute to Harley Race from Tommaso Ciampa.

Before Ciampa had wrestled Bobby Lashley for the United States Championship on the August 8 episode of Monday Night Raw, he had spoke about dedicating his match to the late Harley Race. Harley was the first United States Champion and was somebody that Ciampa was very close with.

Ciampa had showed up to his title match against Lashley wearing a robe that was inspired by and dedicated to Harley Race. Trevor Murdoch had spoke to Zak Ralph about how he felt about the tribute that Ciampa had shown for Harley.

"I loved it. loved it! Anytime when you got one of the boys that go out there and show HR a little love. I love it. Ciampa's like me. He came down to Harley's camp and got to spend some time at Harley's for about six months. I was a little there a little bit longer, obviously, years! Anyway, it's always good to see one of the boys paying respects to HR like that. He's had his hand on a lot of guys and influenced a lot of wrestlers that people really don't know. So it was really touching and really awesome to see Ciampa go out there and throw some love at Harley."

Ciampa had spoken on WWE's The Bump regarding the tribute to Harley Race and what Race meant to him. You can check out more from that interview here.
