School Of Morton – Concrete Block To The Head, NWA Champion
Release Date: December 6, 2018
Running time: 32 min
Recap by: Joe Aguinaldo
- Ricky was recently in Louisville Kentucky for an event and talks about a concert he went to in the ’70s and meeting Alice Cooper. He was a huge fan of Alice, but when Ricky approached him, Alice recognized him which blew his mind.
- Ricky spent time with Kane and Teddy Long in Louisville.
- Ricky was at Wrestlecade. Wrestlecade is not just for fans but also the wrestlers. Someone stole a heavyweight title belt which pissed off Morton. He said that person was stealing from everyone.
- Morton answers a Twitter question about the Briscos. He say he never wrestled them but he got his butt kicked by them a bunch of times. Same with Harley Race who he saw at Wrestlecade.
- Ricky says first impressions mean a lot and thinks Nick Aldis is the best in the world and should be the only one that should be holding the heavyweight title.
- Aldis said he and Morton should have a match but Ricky says there are a lot of other great wrestlers that deserve that more than Ricky.
- Ricky said Ric Flair would give people their money’s worth, which is what Nick does. He also looks like someone.
- Michael Hayes, Terry Gordy, the Midnights and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express came up together in the business.
- Worst ass whipping he ever got was when Hayes and Gordy were involved in a riot with Morton and Bobby Eaton.
- Michael Hayes and Robert Gibson used to hitchhike in Florida to go put up the ring to try and get into the business.
- Ricky saw footage where a wrestler (Angel o Demonio) threw a cinder block at someone’s head.
- Back in the day everyone would have come out and rip that guy’s head off.
- People like that have no business being in wrestling.
- Ricky has been in territories where guys didn’t get along but when they got into the ring it was nothing but business.
- When you throw a block to try and impress someone in the back needs to get out of the business.
- Ricky says this guy is nothing but a joke. Angel o Demonio is calling himself ‘The King Of Concrete.’
- The School Of Morton will be hosting an event called ‘Once Upon A Time At Christmas’. The show will be streamed live on YouTube December 9th at 5:00pm.
- Christmas Star Wars, Bunkhouse Stampede on Christmas day. All matches will be cage matches. Ricky Morton will be in the Bunkhouse Stampede match. Johnson City Community Theatre.
Rating – 6/10
This is my third class with the School Of Morton and as much as I want to like this podcast, I find it a little difficult to listen to. The underlying theme in each of the podcasts I’ve heard is that young people don’t know the business and Ricky does. I don’t disagree with that, he certainly has forgotten more than most will know and does have a bunch of good stories, but hearing it every month gets a little tiring and I’m a Ricky Morton fan!!! I did like his take on the cement block throwing incident and might recommend listening to that portion of the podcast but otherwise, this is a pass or at best a thumbs in the middle.
