Ricky Morton of The Rock ‘N’ Roll Express has claimed yet more tag team gold in his highly decorated career, however this time it’s not with long-time partner Robert Gibson.
Morton took to social media to share the news that he had won the JCP Tag Team Championships for Joe Cazana Promotions in Tennessee alongside his son, Kerry Morton.
The father and son duo have teamed a few times together on the American independent scene, including a victory over AEW’s Brian Pillman Jr. and the former Enzo Amore in 2020.
Ricky Morton accompanied a photo of him and Kerry with their red and gold title belts with the caption:

Kerry Morton is indeed a third-generation star in the wrestling business. His grandfather and Ricky’s dad was Paul Morton who worked as a referee.
Ricky Morton alongside regular partner Robert Gibson won various iterations of the NWA World Tag Team Championship seven times. Their most recent run with the title came in 2019 when they defeated Royce Isaacs and Thomas Latimer on NWA Power. The Rock ‘N’ Roll Express held the title for almost four months before losing it to James Storm and Eli Drake at the Hard Times pay-per-view.
Morton also recently discussed modern-day tag team wrestling, calling The Young Bucks the perfect team for today. However, with Ricky Morton winning his latest title at the age of 64, he is proving what he and Robert Gibson began telling everybody in the 1980’s – Rock ‘N’ Roll is here to stay.
