WWE Hall Of Famer Ricky Morton, best known as one-half of the Rock ‘N’ Roll Express tag-team, recently spoke with Augusta Free Press for an interview. Below are some of the highlights.
On competing against fellow WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair: “Ric, being Ric, we did 17 straight hour matches. It was called Broadway in our day. You notice when I was on the Hall of Fame show, I said, ‘Me and Ric went down Broadway many a nights.’ I don’t know if you remember that. That’s where I got my PhD. The boys knew what I meant. I walked down Broadway. That’s an hour time limit.”
On the way he was treated by WWE during WrestleMania weekend for his WWE Hall Of Fame induction: “They flew me and my family down first class. Pick you up at the airport. When you get to the hotel, the room was bigger than my house. Serious, dude. It’s on the top floor of the Marriott. And my kids are the same way. And the food. I told them, my God, I’d live 500 pounds if I lived around here. Everywhere you went, somebody was cooking, and I’m not talking ham and cheese. I’m talking crab legs, I’m talking steaks this thick. Gosh, man, it was unbelievable.”

X-Pac on Samoa Joe vs Brock Lesnar and always knowing Joe would be in the WWE:At one point he never thought he would end up there. Always knew he would, I always figure somebody that has an incredible amount of talent and things like that to offer will eventually end up there.”
X-Pac on Chatting wrestling with Sylvester Stallone: We were talking about when Steve Austin broke his neck when he speared him through something. He (Steve Austin) speared him (Sylvester Stallone) through something in a fight scene for Expendables and he broke his neck he had to have fused vertebrae.
Road Dogg on the Women’s Money In The Bank Match: it was an easy thing to want to do it but then we got to think about okay well dang what if one of these girls gets hurt on this ladder match what if something happens and is that on me? So it was a big talk with the girls to make sure that they were all game for it and of course, they were. It’s all about making history now.
Road Dogg on if the Women’s Money In The Bank can go between brands: At this point, it’s going to be solely for SmackDown and so that’s the decision that was made and I think that’s okay because we want to keep the integrity of the brand extension.
Road Dogg on who he wants to bring up to SmackDown: I would love to have Asuka. I think she is a huge star down at NXT and I think she can be an even huger star at the next level. So I’d love to have her. I love Bobby Roode as a human being known him for years in TNA and nowhere (WWE) too you know it’s weird to say but AJ Styles is just getting better and better so I’m really really glad to have gotten him and to have kept him… I like those Authors of Pain they’re a big young group of guys really willing to learn and willing to perform and they’re just getting better and better they’re instincts are good they’re timing is good for a couple of big dudes. It seems like everyone down there (NXT) is doing really well. You know I was really glad to get Tye Dillinger he’s a great guy.
Road Dogg on his Mother’s health: She is my ideal role model for my life and that’s why when I talked about getting back to the man or the person that my momma raised it’s very important to me that I remain that person because man she has the faith of a child and now she’s in the early stages of Dementia and kind of Alzheimer’s but she’s the happiest woman in the world she wakes up every morning singing like gospel songs and she believes.

WWE Champion Jinder Mahal recently spoke with Metro.co.uk for an interview. Below are some of the highlights.
On regaining his confidence on the independent wrestling scene: “Yeah I just kept myself busy. I just kept wrestling and kept improving myself. Like when I was in 3MB before I left, I was kind of stuck in the rut. I had lost my confidence. Like I wasn’t having long matches, I wasn’t the main focal point of the show. So when I went away to the independents, a lot of times I was in the main events, you know I was wrestling for 20 minutes and literally built my confidence back. I was able to grow as a person both inside and outside of the ring and you know to get more mature. All these things helped me to get more focused and you know to regain the drive that I used to have, which I kind of lost and became complacent, which you can never do in the WWE. I had to go through that to live that. Now it’s about giving 100% every day and I’ll continue to do so as long as I’m in the WWE.”
On nearly opening a Subway restaurant when he parted ways with WWE in 2014: “I think it got misconstrued a little bit, I wasn’t going to quit wrestling, I would never quit wrestling as long as I can wrestle, but I wasn’t going to pursue it as my main career. I was exploring other options, other businesses, I was in fact going to open up a Subway franchise, but I decided I’m too young, I’m not even in my prime yet, and if I give this my all, give it my best one more time, I could make it top the top. Which I did, I gave it my all, and now I’m WWE Champion.”
On having unfinished business with Rob Gronkowski: “It was a great opportunity, a tremendous moment and a moment that really got a lot of press. Not just from media here in the USA but all over the world, a lot of eyes were seeing Jinder Mahal. It was great. I believe I would have won if it wasn’t for Gronk, so I still have a bone to pick with him! All in all it was a great experience, I think Gronk one day when he’s done with football could definitely become a WWE superstar and I look forward to that possibility, because we have some unfinished business.”
