WWE Hall of Famers The Rock N ‘Roll Express has a few appearances for All Elite Wrestling, but end up looking at the lights nearly every time. The legendary duo was danced by Santana and Ortiz in October 2019 and take deposit from FTR ten months later.
Speaking on Wrestle Buddy Podcast, Ricky Morton of The Rock N’ Roll Express noted that “the doors are always open” for AEW’s return; however, his main focus is join the ring with Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler.
“The doors are always open. I know about the Robert stand-alone circuit and I’m trying to get the FTR,” said Morton. “I did a little thing on the air when I slapped Tully Blanchard and remembered they attacked me. They did this, but they didn’t take it anywhere else [with us]. ”
Morton added on AEW, stressing that he’s a big fan of promoting wrestlers another possible place to work.
“Any wrestling business that opens up, I love it,” Morton said. “Because it’s for boys. Guys have more places to work. I’m here, I’m on the standalone circuit. I’m getting ready to fly to the extreme high corner of Maine for wrestling this weekend. Those are brand new guys I’ve never seen. When AEW first opened, I thought it was the best thing in the world.”
Despite how it started, Morton compared AEW’s currently loaded list with WWE’s list “two years ago”. He mentioned that there is no problem with attracting experienced people, but emphasized that AEW needs to, “build [their] their own stars. ”
“I don’t know if it was Vince and Tony Khan’s trip, I really don’t know, but then again I watched AEW again last week, and when I turned off the TV, I thought I’m watching WWE two. many years ago. But look, it’s great. It’s good to have those men because many of them know how to teach younger people, but if you want this business to grow, you have to build your own stars. I don’t think ratings go up that much with people like that. “
Morton gave special praise Marko Stunt to take his AEW chance and run with it.
“Fans love their new talent,” Morton said. “Marko [Stunt]. Who would have thought he was on vacation? Brother’s what, two legs nothing? To see him and hear him say, ‘I’m the happiest guy in the world for that,’ because he was there to get that break. There are thousands of guys out there, they need to focus a little more. “
