One of, if not the greatest tag team in wrestling history. Multiple time world tag team champions and to think it all began just a few miles away in Memphis, TN. In 1983 The Rock~N~Roll Express was born and tag team wrestling would never be the same. Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson were no strangers to pro wresting. Ricky is the son of pro wrestling referee great, Paul Morton. Robert was trained by his brother, Ricky Gibson and the two tagged often in the late 70s/early 80s. As great as RnR are, it was still a surprise when they showed up in Union City, TN and won the Tag Team Titles. A two month reign came to a halt when The Empire defeated them under dubious circumstances with James J. Dillon in The Empire’s corner. I wouldn’t be surprised if The Rock~N~Roll Express showed up in NWA Mid South again someday to greet the fans that have supported them for over 30 years.
