Fresh off of his WWE Hall of Fame induction with longtime partner Robert Gibson, Ricky Morton is reminiscing about his future.
In an interview with CBS Sports Local, Morton -- who didn't have much of a WWF run to speak of -- remembered finding out that he'd be enshrined with his Rock N' Roll Express partner.
"It was Mark Carrano in talent relations. I was sitting here thinking about a hundred things, and Mark Carrano called us. Actually, I cried. I guess I’m just a big baby. It was emotional. It wasn’t only good for Robert and me. My wife was so excited, my children, my grandkids. They were all there and spent the week with us. WWE took care of all of that. They flew us first class, and I stayed in a suite as big as my house. The things were so fun. Going to the autograph signings and how everything just clicked. They had a display for us for the Hall of Fame, and the way they put all that together was fantastic. I don’t know that I can ever top that moment," said Morton.
Despite the WWE's sign of respect, Morton hasn't forgotten about promoters in the past holding out money from the tandem.
"I didn’t find out until later on that even the Midnight Express and Jim Cornette had a contract for $250,000 a year. My biggest year in the business was $125,000. When they were selling all of the posters and records and things, I sold over a million of them for $19.95. You know, we never got a dime of that. It’s my own fault. I’m not sitting here trying to blame Jim Crockett. They got away with it. The only person I can blame is myself," said Morton.
