Third generation talent Kerry Morton reveals that Ric Flair told him if there was a professional wrestling draft, he would be Flair’s number one pick.

In a new interview with Andrew Thompson of POST Wrestling, third generation talent and current NWA/MLW star Kerry Morton reflected on participating in Ric Flair’s Last Match.

Morton, the son of famed professional wrestling star Ricky Morton, opened up about what it was like to work Ric Flair’s Last Match, taking part in the historic event as a part of a tag team with his Dad and accompanied by Robert Gibson of the The Rock ‘N’ Roll Express.

In the match they were facing AEW stars, Brian Pillman Jr. and Brock Anderson, who were joined at ringside by Arn Anderson.

Morton said:

“What a lineage man. The Four Horsemen and The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, you know? That any old school wrestling fan or current, modern wrestling fan that’s really into the game should know that The Four Horsemen and The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express made history and we did it once more on Ric Flair’s Last Match.

“You know, I saw Ric Flair once during the week and he took the time and he talked to me and he said, ‘You know what Kerry? I was a big, big fan working with your dad back in the day’ and he told me, he said, ‘Kerry, if there was a draft in professional wrestling right now, there was a draft pick,’ he said, ‘You know, you would probably be my number one’ and hearing The Nature Boy say something like that is absolutely the most humbling thing in the world. The greatest professional wrestler of all time, I’m gonna say it on here. The Nature Boy Ric Flair has called me his number one draft pick is very, very humbling.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Morton discusses teaming with his Dad in MLW and their goal of capturing the MLW tag team championships.
