A pro wrestling legend and his son are set to make their MLW debuts later this month.
Ricky & Kerry Morton will debut for MLW at the promotion's SuperFight tapings on Saturday, February 26. The tapings are being held at the Grady Cole Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
"The father and son duo are taking advantage of MLW’s open door policy and look to show MLW’s tag team division the iconic southern tag team style the Mortons are masters of," MLW wrote.
"A highly touted prospect, 20-year old Kerry Morton is a 3rd generation grappler trained by his father. Just like his father in the 1980s, Kerry looks to showcase his talents to the world in Charlotte’s Grady Cole Center."
Last month, Ricky Morton announced that The Rock 'n' Roll Express would be going on a farewell tour. Morton wrote that he wanted to focus more on teaming with Kerry and on the behind the scenes of the wrestling business.
The Rock 'n' Roll Express' farewell tour began with Ricky Morton & Robert Gibson losing to FTR at a show for Big Time Wrestling in January.
Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat is also returning to Charlotte to appear at the MLW SuperFight tapings. In storyline, Steamboat is the matchmaker for the night.
