It’s been a ride. There is one thing that is true of all wrestlers: at some point, they are going to wrap up their careers. Sometimes this is just a detail at the end of a less than impactful career, but there are other wrestlers who get to ride off into the sunset after an all time run. That seems to be the case again, at least for what made a pair of wrestlers famous.
Ricky Morton has announced that Rock N Roll Express will be holding their Farewell Tour beginning on January 22. There is no word on when the tour will end or when their final match as a team will take place. The team has been together since the late 1980s and have won titles around the world, including five reigns as the NWA World Tag Team Champions. Morton specified that he is not retiring from wrestling, but only from teaming with Robert Gibson as the Rock N Roll Express, citing a desire to work more behind the scenes and to team with his son. It is not clear if Gibson will continue to wrestler.
Rock & Roll Express Farewell tour begins January 22nd, 2022.
I want to focus more with Kerry and behind the scenes in the wrestling business.

Specify, Robert and I are retiring from tag team wrestling together. Not appearances/signings.
I would like to continue to tag team with my son and work with the younger generation in this glorious business.

The team has been around for a very, very long time. Check out some of their career together:
Opinion: This is one of those things that you know is going to happen some day but it is hard to believe it is actually happening. The Rock N Roll Express has been around for about forty years and are still active to this day. It is hard to fathom a wrestling world without them together, but hopefully they get some big sendoff, which they have more than earned over the years.
What do you think of the Express? Who should they face in their final match? Let us know in the comments below.
