Ricky Morton announces Rock 'n' Roll Express farewell tour

Morton says he wants to focus on his son and behind the scenes work in pro wrestling.

Ricky Morton announced that the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express will begin their farewell tour in 2022.

Morton wrote on Twitter that he wanted to focus more on his son, Kerry, and also behind the scenes in pro wrestling.

“Rock & Roll Express Farewell tour begins January 22nd, 2022,” he wrote. “I want to focus more with Kerry and behind the scenes in the wrestling business. #onelastride"

The team consisting of Morton and Robert Gibson formed in 1983 in the Memphis territory and also had a run in Mid South Wrestling before going to Jim Crockett Promotions in 1985, where they famously feuded with The Midnight Express. They have continually been a presence on the independent scene, recently working matches in New Japan Pro Wrestling and the latest incarnation of the National Wrestling Alliance, where they briefly held the NWA World Tag Team titles.

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express are set to face FTR in Spartanburg, South Carolina on January 22 at the Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium.
