Morton talks Night of Legends on Sirius XM
Ricky Morton will walk to the ring for Saturday night’s main event at AWE Night of Legends, but he isn’t sure that he’ll be able to walk back out.
“I just don’t know. I can’t tell you that I’m going to go into the ring and beat Kevin Nash. I’m just kidding myself saying that,” Morton said in an interview on the “Busted Open” wrestling talk show on Sirius XM.
Morton and Robert Gibson – The Rock-n-Roll Express – will take on Nash and a mystery partner in the main event at the Night of Legends pay-per-view.
Morton talked about how he egged on the match with Nash after 10 years of shoot interviews alluding to a personal beef that dates back to their time in WCW.
“I think some people might say that Ricky Morton really stuck his foot in his mouth this time, but it’s alright, guys. It’s what I do for a living. I know that Kevin Nash is a seven-foot monster, but I stand up for something that you’re not going to understand unless you’ve been in this business,” Morton said.
“Kevin knows what it’s all about. I know what it’s all about. And it will all come out in the pay-per-view,” Morton said.
Morton feels he and Gibson, three-time former NWA World Tag Team Champions, have a decided advantage over their opponents at Night of Legends because of their long history of tagging together.
“You look back at the days of The Midnight Express, you look at The Rock-n-Roll Express, the Koloffs, The Four Horsemen, they all worked together. Robert and I, we work together. I’ve been with him for 30 years, and when we’re in that ring, we know what each other is trying to do before we even do it, and what it’s going to lead to. Guys these days don’t understand that. They don’t know what tag-team wrestling is about. Nowadays they’re afraid that the other one is going to get over better than they are and get a better contract. They don’t understand what our business is about, and we’re going to try to get it back,” Morton said.
