As noted, The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express (Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson) will be inducted into the 2017 WWE Hall of Fame Class. The tag team recently spoke with CBS Sports about the induction.
Morton on getting the call:
“It was a surprise. I had a message on my phone [from WWE] to call the number back. I think they got ahold of Robert at the time. When they called, it was just like a suckerpunch. It just knocked us off our feet.”
Morton on fans chanting for one more match at the Hall of Fame:
“When you go back and watch the tapes, when Robert and I come out, the chant goes ‘ROCK AND ROLL! ROCK AND ROLL!’ But ‘One More Match?’ Oh, buddy. We’re still very active. Hey, we’ll have four matches this week.”
