• Old School Wrestling Legend Celebrates His Birthday

Old School Wrestling Legend Ricky Morton celebrates his 64th birthday today.

As one half of the legendary Tag Team, The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, he wrestled for several major promotions, such as NWA Jim Crockett Promotions, WWF World Wrestling Federation, WCW World Championship Wrestling, Mid-South Wrestling, CWA/USWA Memphis Wrestling, SMW Smoky Mountain Wrestling & TNA Total Nonstop Action.

Morton started his career in 1978 but is still wrestling occasionally on the independent scene nowadays, still teaming up with Robert Gibson as The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express.

• RAW Superstar Says Vince McMahon Told Her She Reminds Him Of Stephanie McMahon

While speaking on D-Von Dudley’s Table Talk podcast, RAW Superstar Zelina Vega discussed the praise she got from WWE CEO Vince McMahon.

Below is what she said:

“If the quarantine didn’t happen, not that I wouldn’t have had these opportunities, but it may have taken a little longer. Also, Becky is having her baby. There are people that are not here and that leaves spots for people to fill. I was always like, give me the ball, and if I drop it, screw me, but you lose nothing. I was always ready for that. I think it started with Drew [McIntyre] when we had that back and forth. He was my other promo half. It was perfect. When it happened with him, it was magic.

It’s interesting because before quarantine happened, Vince [McMahon] would always say ‘you are one of my favorites. You are one of the reasons I watch RAW and I love your character.’ It was such an honor to hear that. He said ‘you remind me of Stephanie because she is always working out there and you are a machine.’”

She also talked about support from Paul Heyman when he was the Executive Director of RAW.

“You wouldn’t be given the ball if it wasn’t for someone to believe in you. One person that really believed in me was Paul Heyman. I’m so lucky to say I had someone like him on my side because he fought for me every single time, every single day. When it comes to being a manager, I look up to him a lot because he is the greatest of all time. When you have someone like that who believes in you, it fuels your fire that much more.”
