WWE Hall Of Famer Ricky Morton Diagnosed With Bells Palsy

WWE Hall of Famer Ricky Morton has been diagnosed with Bells Palsy. The condition causes facial paralysis and can range in severity but Morton is reportedly going to be okay.

Morton made the announcement on his School of Morton podcast. Here is the full quote, courtesy of Wrestling News:

“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.”

It is great news that Morton is going to be okay. He is semi-retired, as he and Robert Gibson still compete as the Rock n Roll Express to this day. Needless to say, decades of wrestling have taken their toll on Morton.

The legendary tag team was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2017.
