Rock-n-Roll Express: One more time?

Ricky Morton has seen it before. Kevin Nash comes in, immediately becomes the main-event guy and sucks all the air out of the company.

“Kevin Nash, you know the history between me and you. And what is all that about? You coming in someplace, invading it, taking all the money, shutting the place down and running off to somewhere else,” said Morton, whose long-running beef with Nash dates back to their days in WCW.

From Morton’s perspective, his tenure in WCW came to an end because of Nash and his New World Order faction taking over the top spot from WCW long-timers like The Rock-n-Roll Express.

That’s what he and Robert Gibson are fighting for at the AWE Night of Legends pay-per-view on Oct. 15.

“You see, buddy, right here, we stand for the AWE. And one thing I’m not going to let you do is do it to me one more time,” Morton said.

 

Funk: One last lesson from the teacher

Terry Funk even catches himself asking the question.

“Do you think that you could honestly go back into the ring again?” said Funk, who will face Tommy Dreamer at the AWE Night of Legends pay-per-view on Oct. 15.

They say you’re as old as you feel, “and I feel about 105 right now,” Funk said.

“But, dadgummit, I thought about it, and you’re as old as you feel, that’s for sure, but they say that the older you get, the meaner you get, and I’m getting pretty dadgum mean,” Funk said.

Funk asked for the match with Dreamer, a long-time student of Funk, after going down his options on the AWE roster.

“I’d love to step back into the ring. Maybe not with Diamond Dallas Page. Maybe not with Kevin Nash. Those boys are pretty big boys. Maybe not ‘Hacksaw’ Jim Duggan. I need somebody that’s pretty crappy to get in the ring with. I was kinda thinking that would be Tommy Dreamer. I knew him when he was sweeping out the dressing rooms in ECW years ago. I’d love to get in the ring with a guy about the caliber of that Tommy Dreamer. I’m thinking I can still whip ol’ Tommy,” Funk said.

 

Jamin: Call me, Kevin Nash

OK, it’s a bit of a stretch, but …

“The biggest player in the game will be there,” said Jamin Olivencia, appearing to get off the phone with Kevin Nash.

Nash, of course, is looking for a partner for the main event of the AWE Night of Legends pay-per-view on Oct. 15.

Right now, the identity of the partner who will team with Nash against The Rock-n-Roll Express is a mystery.

Mystery solved?
