Wrestling Legend Ricky Morton Reveals Bells Palsy Diagnosis

NWA star and Rock ‘N’ Roll Express member Ricky Morton announced on his School of Morton podcast that he’s been diagnosed with Bells Palsy. The former 10-time NWA tag champion revealed a scary story of discovering his face had been disfigured, but assures wrestling fans around the world that health wise he’s doing fine.

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. I thought that I might be having a stroke but I went to the hospital,” he said. “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.

Morton and partner Robert Gibson were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2017. They made a cameo appearance at the AEW Full Gear pay per view, and have been regularly working NWA’s Powerrr. Check out the full podcast below. (H/T and transcribed by Wrestling News)
