• WWE Hall Of Famer Diagnosed With Bell’s Palsy
During a recent edition of his School Of Morton podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Ricky Morton (of The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express) revealed that he has been diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy.
Below is what Morton said on his podcast:
“Last Tuesday, I woke up and got ready to go to the gym. I went downstairs and had me a cup of coffee and I noticed the coffee running out of my mouth.
It really scared me. I ran in the bathroom and I saw that my face looked disfigured.
They told me it was brought on by stress and everything, but I have a touch of Bell’s palsy.
It looks like it’s starting to clear up a little bit. I can shut my eyes and start talking.
I just wanted to tell the wrestling world out there, if you see me, don’t run off. I’m doing good. Physically wise, I’m great.”
