Kerry Morton Talks About Working Ric Flair's Last Match Card, MLW Debut


Kerry Morton recently spoke with Andrew Thompson of POST Wrestling for an interview.

During the discussion, the son of Ricky Morton from the legendary Rock 'N' Roll Express tag-team spoke about being part of Ric Flair's Last Match card, as well as his MLW debut.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On being part of Ric Flair’s ‘Last Match’ card: "What a lineage man. The Four Horsemen and The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, you know? That any old school wrestling fan or current, modern wrestling fan that’s really into the game should know that The Four Horsemen and The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express made history and we did it once more on Ric Flair’s Last Match. You know, I saw Ric Flair once during the week and he took the time and he talked to me and he said, ‘You know what Kerry? I was a big, big fan working with your dad back in the day’ and he told me, he said, ‘Kerry, if there was a draft in professional wrestling right now, there was a draft pick,’ he said, ‘You know, you would probably be my number one’ and hearing The Nature Boy say something like that is absolutely the most humbling thing in the world. The greatest professional wrestler of all time, I’m gonna say it on here. The Nature Boy Ric Flair has called me his number one draft pick is very, very humbling. He watches me on NWA, National Wrestling Alliance, he watches me in Major League Wrestling and he’s watched me on the independent circuit here time and time again. Really cool and just to see Nature Boy step back into that ring one more time baby, woo! So, what a really, really fun time to see that man. Not only did Ric Flair strut the strut and walk the walk, he did all of that and some more so I’m just — it was super, super great to see him out there walking down the aisle with his robe on and I couldn’t think of a better moment to top off the weekend than watching The Nature Boy do it one more time."

On making MLW debut with Ricky Morton, says they are coming back to MLW: "Oh man, Major League Wrestling was such a fun time to be at, especially the Grady Cole Center in Charlotte, North Carolina… Rock ‘n’ Roll and I tore it up. We had a fun, fun time, we tag teamed together. We went against The Von Erichs and those guys are the real deal. Unfortunately, the favor was not in our hands that night, but never say never. We’re coming back to MLW to look at some tag team gold and I promise you, I assure you one thing, Kerry Morton will have some MLW gold in the near future."
