The board of directors of the Cauliflower Alley Club is pleased to announce that Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson, "The Rock and Roll Express" have been, unanimously, selected to be the recipients of the club's Tag Team Award for 2022.
The nine-time National Wrestling Alliance world tag team champions, ten-time Smoky Mountain Wrestling tag team champions and World Wrestling Entertainment Hall of Famers will accept their honor at the Cauliflower Alley Club's 56th annual reunion, to be held Sept. 26-28th at the Plaza Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Joining forces as a team in the Memphis territory in 1983, Ricky and Robert worked all over the wrestling world before heading to the National Wrestling Alliance's Jim Crockett Promotions in 1985 where their feud with Jim Cornette's Midnight Express is still talked about and remembered fondly to this day.
With screaming throngs of thousands of teenage girls cheering them on (whom they, more often than not, had to fight through to get into the ring) Ricky and Robert were not only professional wrestling's glam styled rock stars, complete with long flowing hair, bandanas and flashy outfits...they could fight too!
They were fast, they were high-flying and wrestling fans couldn't seem to get enough of them! They also inspired generations of wrestling tag teams to follow, including the team of Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannety, "The (Midnight) Rockers"!
The Cauliflower Alley Club, once again, congratulates The Rock and Roll Express on their 2022 Cauliflower Alley Club Tag Team Award and welcomes them into "the ring of friendship" this September in Las Vegas.
