Ricky Morton Talks Feud With Midnight Express, Nash, Shawn Michaels & More
On Kevin Nash: "You know in this business sometimes you got to make a statement. And I made one to Marvin Ward. That's why he was going to bring a mystery partner for Kevin Nash, but understand it's no longer a mystery partner for Kevin Nash. It's me and Kevin Nash alone in an 'I Quit' match. Some people might say that Ricky Morton really stuck his foot in his mouth this time, but it's alright guys. It's what I do for a living. I mean I know that Kevin Nash is a 7-foot monster, but I stand up for something that nobody's ever going to understand unless you've been in this business. And I'm not going to insult anybody there. OK? Don't get me wrong, I'm not. Kevin knows what it's all about. I know what it's all about. And it will all come out at the Pay-Per-View. But understand me. It's Marvin Ward thinking that he's going to get back even with me whether I be in there alone with Kevin, but dude let me tell ya'. It's not my first rodeo show. I've been there and done it before."
The Midnight Express: "Most of the time it's like going on a blind date. I never know what I'm gonna' get, but back in our days when we wrestled, everybody were great workers. For reasons I don't understand, and I didn't want to know because I don't dig into people's personal lives. It's none of my business. But we had a great run with Dennis & Bobby. . It was a great angle because it was Express' against Express'. Bobby Eaton, without a doubt, one of the top workers ever in this business. For his time and era, he was unbelievable. Dennis Condrey was a professional in this business. I grew up with a lot of guys in this business, but Dennis Condrey is one of the few that raised me in this business. And I'm going back to the concept again about the boys. We didn't have contracts back in those days and when Stan Lane come in, all we had was each other, and we had to depend on each other to make a living. Between Dennis & Stan, they were great tremendous, both workers. And I got to hand my hat off to Stan Lane because whatever happened for Dennis to leave, when Stan Lane stepped in, they didn't miss a step. You see, that's being a great worker. That's being something that nobody under…unless you're in this business, understands. To fill the boots of Dennis after all the heat between The Midnight Express & The Rock N' Roll Express that was put over on TV. Then Stan Lane come in and filled those boots, and we didn't miss a beat. We sold out arenas every week because we gave his fans what they wanted to see buddy."
On Shawn Michaels: "I started this business with Robert Gibson & I. I wasn't going to leave without him, and I don't know if you understand what I mean by that. I had that opportunity, but when it comes to Shawn Michaels, and don't take me wrong about this, and I'm not trying to insult you. But to me, when Shawn Michaels did this (The Rockers), it was a great compliment to me. Shawn Michaels besides that is one of the top greatest workers of this business. I give him credit for that. There's no heat between me and Shawn. To me, it was a great compliment. The thing that goes back between me regretting what I've done, and what I didn't do? No buddy, I would not turn that page back again in history because decisions are made. For The Rock N' Roll Express was for Robert and I both. I had that opportunity, but like I told you earlier, I started this business with Robert Gibson as The Rock N' Roll Express, and I'm just like it is buddy, I leave no one behind."
