But Honey, I’ve Never Cheated On You…

Ricky Morton’s Wild Story
PART 2 and 3 below...

Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson
The Rock and Roll Express
WHAT WE KNOW SO FAR:  If you've read PART 1 of the story,  you'll know that Ricky had been accused by his then wife Connie of being unfaithful in their marriage,  a claim that Ricky flatly denied.  He had told Connie on more than one occasion that he had never frolicked outside their bedroom doors and while Connie wanted to believe him,  she still had doubts.  Along around that time,  Connie was thinking about undergoing a religious transformation herself as she wanted to become a Born Again Christian and she wanted young Ricky to join her in turning their lives over to Jesus.   Connie was even using Ricky's old wrestling cohort,  Tully Blanchard to help her win Ricky over to God's side as Tully had just become a Born Again Christian also.  So kiddies...gather around the fireplace...old Uncle Dutch is going to tell PART 2 of this story as Ricky and Connie are sitting on their couch awaiting Tully Blanchard's first appearance on the highly watched The 700 Club as Tully was all prepared to tell the  'world' what a sinful life he had led in the wrestling business.  That was a claim that Connie knew that Ricky had been drawn into and she wanted to free his 'soul' from all the evilness that had surrounded them in the dark and vile world of wrestling.  

Find out how this story I've combined the 2nd Part and the 3rd Part of the story as it concludes below.  This has been presented as a SAMPLE CHAPTER OF TALES FROM A DIRT ROAD.  Enjoy. 

As they watched the show together that night,  Ricky told me that old Pat Robertson did some preaching and some praying and then it was time for Tully. According to Ricky, Pat Robertson gave Tully Blanchard one of the biggest buildups that he had heard in a long time when he introduced Tully. He started out by naming all the wrestling championships that Tully had won and naming him also as a charter member of the infamous Four Horsemen along with Ric Flair and Arn Anderson. At last, Tully made his appearance. The crowd received him wildly. At this time, there was no NFL football team nor NBA franchise in the Carolinas so the wrestlers were the 'sports' stars of the day, even more than NASCAR.

The interview began. Connie squeezed Ricky's hand as she wanted Tully's appearance to make Ricky seriously think about changing his life.

Pat Robertson turned the interview over to Tully. 
The Devil Himself!!! 

As Tully started talking about his life, Tully blamed the sinful ways of the wrestling profession for making him dance with the Devil. Tully thanked God for helping him. Pat said amen brother. Connie looked at Ricky and said, "That's the same thing I've been telling you honey."

Tully continued by saying it was the evilness of the wrestling profession that made him do drugs and drink liquor and take pills. Tully thanked God for saving him. Pat said amen brother. Connie looked at Ricky again and told him, in her sweetest voice, "See, I've been telling you the same thing baby."

Tully now got carried away with talking about his life of sin and debauchery and said that he could not count the times he had been out on the road on wrestling trips where he was so drugged up in a motel room, that he didn't even know where he was and again, he gave God credit for showing him the light of salvation. Pat said amen brother.

Connie told Ricky...”See Ricky...Tully saw the light."

Devil at work???

Tully continued on by saying he couldn't count the times that the liquor and beer was flowing all night long with cocaine and pills laying on the table. Tully thanked God for leading him out of the darkness. Pat was really into this now as he was amen'ing everything that Tully said.

Connie was now saying 'amen' along with Pat Robertson every time Tully would make a point, according to Ricky.  Ricky said he watched Tully's appearance on the 700 Club and told me he believed Tully was lying like a dog. Ricky told me that he didn't buy for one second Tully's 'alleged' BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN BULLS**T.

According to Ricky, he knew that Tully was nearing the end of his wrestling money days and felt that Tully was just looking for another 'scam' to take over the wrestling one that Tully had parlayed into a pretty good income for the last 15 years. Ricky said that he knew Tully well...knew his ways and how he operated and felt that Tully's newly found CHRISTIAN GIG...was just PRO WRESTLING REVISITED but on a different level. Instead of an arena, Tully now had a church. Instead of ringside seats, Tully now would have pews. Instead of a ring, Tully had a pulpit. But Ricky thought that if this was what it took to get him back in good graces with Connie, then he'd play along with it.

Ricky said that Connie was squeezing his hand and touching him in a way that he had not felt from her in months but he had to admit that even though he really didn't believe Tully,  he believed that this could draw him and Connie closer.   Ricky admitted to me that up to this point,  this whole 'come to Jesus' thing was actually working pretty good so far.   

Finally, Ricky said Tully got stronger and stronger in his testimony. Old Pat Robertson was really buying into it, the studio crowd was eating it up and Connie was hanging on every word. Then Ricky said, Tully said the WRONG THING!!!   Tully mentioned something that he should have stayed away from.  Tully mentioned the word WOMEN.   And not only just women...he used the term 'loose women'

OH GAWD....Ricky thought....please don't start talking about the women.  Ricky's brain was spinning in overdrive trying to send a psychic message to Tully to shut the hell up.   In Ricky's head,  if Tully had shut the hell up right then,  he would have converted instantly to being the most gung ho Born Again Christian of all time but he felt it all slipping away in an instant.  He knew Tully and he knew that Tully liked to talk...a lot.  Ricky was fine with the alcohol references,  the pills and the drugs and even the cocaine.   But please, please Tully,  Ricky implored silently in his head,  don't start talking about the women that hung around around the matches. 

In the past,  Connie had seen the 'loose women'  around the matches literally throw themselves at Ricky as she had seen them do with other wrestlers.  She had also seen the divorces that the wrestling lifestyle had wrought upon some of her friends who had been married to wrestlers.  The females who hung around 'wrestlers' were no different than the ones who hung around the rock stars.  The rock stars called their followers,  'groupies'.  The wrestlers, however,  weren't so politically correct.  The wrestlers called the females that followed them,  ring rats or arena rats.  Personally,  I never called them that..I always simply referred to them under another title....'little ladies of the matches'.  

MID 80'S

To tell the truth,  wrestlers have always suffered a higher percentage of divorce rates than the average American couple.   In the civilian sector,  first time marriages that ended up in divorce hung around the 40% mark but with wrestlers,  it was double that.  Wrestlers didn't stay married to the same woman for years like a lot of regular marriages.   It was a combination of traveling,  being away from home for long stretches at a time and the temptations that the wrestling lifestyle presented.   Connie also knew that Ricky was human and some of these females who were throwing themselves all over Ricky were beautiful young girls.  Even though he insisted he was always 'semper fi' to her,  she knew Ricky too well to think he was a choirboy.

Ricky's thought processes had suddenly swung 180 degrees back to the right.  He had liked Tully up to this point but that Ricky's opinion of him was rapidly changing with every sentence Tully spoke.   

Ricky said he glanced over at Connie and said her eyes changed and her mood changed. Ricky said that up to this point, he hadn't really thought about praying but now, he started praying that Tully would shut the ‘F’ up and downplay the women angle a little bit seeing as how it was a serious bone of contention between Ricky and his wife. 

But, according to Ricky, Tully just couldn't keep his big fat mouth shut as Tully was bound and determined to go there.

As Connie's undivided attention was devoted to the screen, Ricky said he was helpless to do anything but he felt something bad coming on.  But surely,  Ricky thought,  Tully would not be so stupid as to actually tell everything that went on. Could he?  Would he? 
Oh God...Ricky thought...don't start talking about that. Please, Ricky thought…don't talk about the women.

Ricky told me that as he watched the screen,  time stood still as he not only watched in disbelief but in heard it as well as Tully was making a statement about the evilness of the wrestling profession.  

Tully was not speaking in a raised voice as if he were already giving a sermon that he could not count the times that there had been DRUGS, LIQUOR AND


But Ricky said he must have thought it too late as the words....

"WILD NAKED WOMEN RUNNING AROUND IN HIS ROOM and not only that...RUNNING BACK AND FORTH ALL OVER THE MOTELS  BETWEEN HIS ROOM AND RICKY MORTON'S ROOM...doing drugs,  drinking and having sex with those loose immoral women all night long.   Tully then added,  as to make it OK,  it was ALL THE WORK OF THE DEVIL.
OH GOD!!! WTF, Ricky thought!!!

Ricky told me when he heard that,  time stopped. He told me and these are Ricky's words, "I fell flat out off the sofa and just stared at the TV like I had been shot. I looked at Connie and she looked at me and her eyes told me everything I needed to know and I knew right then, it was over."

Ricky said that in less than 30 seconds, his life went from being great to being an absolute horror.

I've heard a ton of stories about wrestlers getting busted with other women in different ways...such as a wife driving 300 miles to another city without her husband knowing and getting the key to her husband's motel room where she actually opened the door and caught her husband in the act, but I've never heard a wrestler or anybody for that matter get busted on LIVE TV. And on a religious show. That was a first.  Even Jimmy Swaggart didn't get busted on LIVE TV. 

Ricky said that he tried to tell Connie that Tully was lying but Connie would have none of it. She said that Tully had turned his life around and was a man of God now...and he had to reason to lie. Ricky told me that his marriage was over right at that point.

As for me, this story stunned me. I have know Ricky Morton for well over 25 years...and I've never heard this tale either from any of the other wrestlers or from Ricky himself.  Usually,  news like this would travel quickly around the wrestling circles but not this one for some reason.

There was only one thing I wanted to know from Ricky. Was there any truth to what Tully had said on the 700 Club show or did he just get caught up in the story and inadvertenly drop Ricky's name in the mix?

Ricky just looked at me and just rolled his eyes and said, “Brother please...what do you think?"

I asked Ricky did he ever confront Tully on why his name was even brought up on the 700 Club testimonial, and Ricky said that he didn't see Tully again until five years later. In retrospect, according to Ricky, that was probably a good thing because Ricky claimed that he had visions of killing Tully if he had run across him for ruining his life. Ricky did say that when he did talk to Tully years later, Tully apologized to him but it was five years too late.

Needless to say, Ricky and Connie ended up getting a divorce. Connie took the three kids and went back to Nashville where she was raised and where her family was. Ricky has continued his ways and now is remarried with more kids than he had with Connie and Tully is still preaching I suppose and saving lost souls.

But Ricky said that his marriage had been rocky for some time and if this hadn't happened when it did, it would have most likely been something else. As Ricky put it, when you take the ‘L’ out of ‘LOVER’’s ‘OVER.’ According to Ricky, thanks to Tully Blanchard, that ‘L’ got erased in one interview.

Sometimes I wonder why people do the things they do. Why Tully Blanchard would say something like that amazes me. Even if I was the biggest druggie, drunk, dope addict, liar, cheat, thief in the world, I would never admit it publicly nor would I name anybody else. That's a private matter. I'm always amazed why a man like Tully Blanchard couldn't have told the story about his inequities and sinful ways and his discovery with God...without involving others. I've written two books and I have yet to say or write one thing that I would not say to a man's face or had permission to say.  

I've often had doubts about wrestlers turning to religion but I'll save that one for the next book. It’s an interesting theory but one that has a great deal of credibility to it, but that's another story for another day.

Famous Last Words...Honey, I Never Cheated on You...Never!!!

NOW AVAILABLE online.   To purchase a on the photo on the right.  You know..where is says order the book here???   You can also order a personally autographed copy of the book directly from us here by reading the information posted below or by emailing us at:

Today for your reading pleasure,   I'm posting one  more  SAMPLE CHAPTER from my new book,  TALES FROM A DIRT ROAD.   It's a story that every married man can relate to and especially married wrestlers.  Wrestlers have lives but most of them always lived two lives.  One on the road...and one at home and those two should never intersect.  

Wrestlers are away from home for extended periods of time and during that time,  temptation is always right around the corner...every night.  There's a ton of temptation out there and some wrestlers could resist it and some couldn't.  Take it from someone who's been on the road for months at a time,   there's a lot of temptations to deal with.   It could be drugs, alcohol or the company of the beautiful women or not so beautiful women.   That doesn't make wrestlers any less human than anybody else but it damn sure could make it tough back on the home front.  It's called LIFE.  But this a story as told to me by Ricky Morton is every wrestler's nightmare.  This chapter is presented FREE and in installments...due to its length.  Enjoy. 

Famous Last Words: ...
But Honey, I’ve Never Cheated On You…Never!
Ricky Morton’s Wild Story 

Ricky Morton

This is a true story of why Ricky Morton got a divorce from his first wife, Connie. I knew Ricky and Connie almost from the day Ricky first started in the business.  A couple of years ago,  we both appeared on the same show together and as we talked of old times,  he related this story to me that he had never told me before.   After hearing this tale, I asked him if I could share it in this book.   Ricky looked at me and said, "Dutchman, you can write anything you want because I love you man." So that statement right there gives me carte blanche! So, here's the story.

 In the mid-’80's, the NWA office in Charlotte or Jim Crockett Promotions were in their peak period as they were regularly selling out major arenas all over the Carolinas and Virginia. The talent level in JCP was phenomenal at the time....with Ric Flair, Magnum TA, Nikita and Ivan Koloff, the Midnight Express, the Four Horsemen, Handsome Jimmy Valiant (or the Boogie Woogie Man as he was known at the time) all under one roof. But one of the hottest teams ever to hit the wrestling business was The Rock and Roll Express, which was one of the major reasons business was so good.

Rock and Roll Express as
NWA World Champions
 I've always loved Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson—the Rock and Roll Express—not only as performers but as great guys. Jerry Lawler and I actually came up with their Rock and Roll gimmick one Tuesday afternoon as we drove to Louisville, Ky., for a wrestling show. There is no doubting how ridiculously over the Rock and Roll Express were at their height. The Rock and Roll were born in Memphis then traveled south to the Mid South promotion owned by Bill Watts, and then they ended up in the NWA Mid Atlantic promotion in Charlotte. I have no idea why Vince McMahon never used the Rock and Roll Express in the WWF but if he had,   Ricky Morton could be well be in the same spot as Shawn Michaels is today.  

During his time in the NWA,  Ricky lived in Charlotte with his wife, Connie, and his three children. As with a lot of marriages in the wrestling business, Connie thought that Ricky may have strayed from his marital vows and maybe had cheated on her several times while he was away on wrestling trips. When Connie had confronted Ricky with her suspicions, Ricky had always denied the accusations and claimed innocence, saying that he loved her and would never, ever, have anything to do with another woman. Connie had her doubts about Ricky's faithfulness but Ricky swore on a stack of Bibles that he had never, NEVER...had any sexual relations outside their marriage. Connie wanted to believe her husband and even though she had doubts, she accepted that what he was telling her was the TRUTH.

Connie, of course, blamed all her marriage problems on the wrestling lifestyle. Ricky would leave and be gone for days and she had seen how wrestlers lived out on road. She had seen the women that hung around and she knew that wrestlers lived a life that didn't lend itself to normalcy. She wanted her Ricky back...the one before the Rock and Roll Express were born.

 Along about this time, Tully Blanchard—a card-carrying member of The Four Horsemen—was undergoing a serious life change. Tully, it appeared, had seen the light. He became a BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN and was openly proselytizing to the world that everybody needed to accept Jesus as their personal savior. Also at this time, Connie was even considering undergoing a religious transformation herself and thus had become a regular viewer of the “700 Club” hosted by the Rev. Pat Robertson. The Charlotte, N.C., area had long been the home of what I called, THE GOD BUSINESS, as it headquartered such religious organizations as the PTL Club, which Jim and Tammy Baker had made famous, and the 700 Club.

The Original 4 of the greatest
stables of ALL TIME!!! 
Ole Anderson, Tully, JJ Dillon,  Arn and Ric Flair  

As the story unfolded, Connie had been lobbying Ricky to turn his life around. She wanted Ricky to accept God and Jesus just like Tully had done. She believed that Ricky had been living a sinful life and she blamed the wrestling business, and she wanted both of them to change their lives. If Tully Blanchard had become a 'child of God,' then she and Ricky both could do the same. In Connie's mind, it would strengthen their relationship and their marriage.

But Ricky had been resisting her efforts to fully convert him so she looked to Tully for help. She knew that Ricky looked up to Tully and respected and admired him, and if Tully could do it, maybe Ricky would see the light. Connie prayed every night that she could help save herself and Ricky.

As it turned out, around this time, Tully Blanchard was invited to appear on the 700 Club, which was hosted by the Rev. Pat Robertson, as a SPECIAL GUEST. Tully's appearance on the show was to be a 'testimonial,' in where Tully would give a 'personal account' of how God had saved him from eternal damnation. The 700 Club had played host to many high-profile celebrities who gave credit to God for turning their lives around and for Tully, this was a big deal. As it turned out later, not only was Tully considering a 'life change,' he was also considering a career change and was thinking about dropping out of the WRESTLING BUSINESS completely to enter the GOD BUSINESS.

For what it’s worth, The 700 Club to evangelists and religious figures was what WWE RAW is to wrestlers or Comedy Central is to comedians. If any evangelist was going to be taken seriously among the Christian Brotherhood and is going to make any money in the GOD BUSINESS, then an appearance on “The 700 Club” was a mandatory stop. Since wrestlers were such high-profile personalities, The 700 Club loved having wrestlers give their personal life stories. Pat Robertson has played host to wrestlers regularly over the years but Tully was probably the first one. Since that time, he has been followed by Ted Dibiase, Nikita Koloff, Sting, Lex Luger and even Jake the Snake Roberts tried the GOD BUSINESS for a time. Of course, every wrestler that appeared on the show always blamed the 'sinful wrestling business' as the Devil himself. Connie felt much the same way.

On the night Tully was scheduled to appear, Connie told Ricky that she felt in her heart that a change was coming over their lives. She said she had been praying for it and wanted to know if Ricky would watch Tully's appearance on the show with her that night. Ricky told her that he would. The show would be telecast LIVE and she felt that this could be the night that she could, along with Tully and God's help, save lost little Ricky from the evils that lurked behind every corner. Or turnbuckle.

When the show came on, Ricky sat alongside his lovely wife, Connie, on their sofa as they awaited Tully's first appearance on the 700 Club with Pat Robertson.

As the show opened, Ricky told me, Connie was talking to him about their relationship and how she felt that this could be a major turning point in their lives. Connie told him that no matter what had happened in the past, all was forgiven and Ricky assured Connie, one more time, that there had been no cheating in their marriage. Connie said she believed him and they kissed and as they sat holding hands, all was right with the world, as Ricky told me.
Ricky then stopped talking and looked at me and said, "Dutchman,  everything was all right with the world one minute and the next,  my whole world came crashing down on my head." 

What happened?

If you're a fan of wrestling books,   then this book is for you. TALES FROM A DIRT ROAD is much like my first book in that its story after story of events and situations that have happened in the wrestling business in days gone by.  Its a fascinating ride through the wrestling business when it was so much different than what you see today.    Things will never be the way they were years ago but that doesn't mean you can't hear about them and relive them through my book, TALES FROM A DIRT ROAD.

This is not an autobiography. I talk about everybody and everyone as they happen to fit into the story. Some of the people profiled in the book include the Undertaker, Jake the Snake, Stone Cold, Razon Ramone or as he was known then, Scott Hall, Sid Vicious, Iron Sheik, Vince Russo, Abyss, Jeff Jarrett, Jerry Lawler, Bill Dundee, Robert Fuller, John Bradshaw, Buddy Landell, Eddie Graham, Dusty Rhodes and on and on it goes. Here are some of the chapters titles in no random order:

Roaming North America with Crazy People...the JBL Story.

Bradshaw was at times legitimately crazy or if he wasn't, he damn sure had all the qualifications. Traveling with Bradshaw was like like rolling dice. You could win but you could damn sure lose. Read about a night in Vancouver after a WWF PPV where we could have very easily gone to jail. Plus his dislike of Jake the Snake.

WrestleMania 11...this chapter covers all the events and backstage craziness that accompanies such a big even such as a WrestleMania. It's an hilarious look behind the scenes and what goes on.

Concussions in the Early Days...Now They Tell Me!!!

Concussions are taken seriously now...but in the past, it was a part of the game. I'm going to send this chapter to Mick Foley. Recently, he revealed in an interview that he may have suffered permanent brain damage. Really, Mick? I love Mick but I could have told him that. Read about some scary times when I along with about every other wrestler were walking around in a daze and never knew how dangerous it could be.

Alcohol + A Bar + the Undertaker = a KnockOut night in the life of the Dutchman and the Undertaker as both end up in a precarious situation.

MEETING SCOTT HALL FOR THE FIRST TIME ...and inventing a new type match, right on the spot. 

NAKED AT THE HIGH SCHOOL GYM...a night that a wrestling show ended up getting wrestling barred from a town FOREVER.  Following that night, according to the local yahoos,  it was like they had been invaded by the Huns and had their crops ruined and their women raped.   Wrestling  was blocked for ever returning to the town again..and guess what?  We never went back.  


This is a late night hilarious account of the three of us in a bar at 3AM in the morning with bikers, rednecks, hookers, gays, Afro-Americans, Latinos and Asians plus I'm sure a couple of mental patients thrown in for good measure. We ended up leaving in a hurry. I can't make this stuff up people.

TNA and Vince Russo...Behind the Scenes...a look behind the scenes at a man who nobody really knows.   Who really is Vince Russo...what makes him tick?  Up to now,  nobody really knows and to tell the truth,  I'm not sure I even know him even after spending 5 years with the guy.   But for the first time,  I give my personal opinon on the man.  
Want to Be a Tough Guy...or A Smart Guy? A look back at how a young Dutch learrned how to traverse the political minefields of dealing with a LEGEND of the sport without the repercussions.  Or how I escaped from being FIRED after a run in with Wrestling 2.  Its a story that took only 6 hours to develop, evolve and be solved.  True story.

Managing the Blu Brothers in the WWF and the Night They Confronted Shawn Michaels Backstate at MSG...a night at the Garden that Shawn wished hadn't happened. He wasn't alone. I do too.

WWE International Tour...a highly detailed and humorous account of a WWF tour of Germany and how one member of the WWF crew had to be immediately whisKed off the tour due to a disgusting incident.

The Last Sellout In Memphis...a first hand account of a match that sold out the Memhis Coliseum...for the LAST TIME. The match was a TEXAS DEATH match that involved Jerry Lawler, Bill Dundee and Buddy Landell. We didn't know it then...but it was the LAST SELLOUT EVER in the old Mid South Coliseum for wrestling. It took us 26 falls and an hour and 15 minutes to do it but never before had fans been witness to such a match. It only happened once and has never been repeated.

Booking Florida...and The Untold Eddie Graham Story...a lot of people might not remember Eddie Graham. I do. This chapter is a serious look behind the scenes of a real life tragedy...and what I might have been able to do to prevent it.

Ernie Ladd Takes on the Brisco Brothers in a REAL STREET FIGHT. True story. This confrontation was a majorly underreported story about a REAL LIFE fight between Jack and Jerry Brisco and the Big Cat Ernie Ladd that took place on a Tampa side street at 2AM in the morning. The fight ended with an emergency room visit. Yes, blood was flowing. This is an account that I heard directly from Ernie himself about the whole story surrounding it.  Highly recommended read.

The Origin of Wrestler's Court.. how does it work....where did it start...and who created it. Find out here.

Interesting chapter...again a true story.

Fighting Wrestling Fans in a 7-11 Parking Lot...fights with wrestling fans were more or less common happenings back in the day...or they were with me and wrestling had a certain protocol in dealing with it. 

Yes, this is a weapon that fans
Real Things That Happened at Real Wrestling Shows...crazy things that I have seen or heard of happening at wrestling shows...true stories.  I always thought wrestlers were the demented ones until I ran across some of these nuts.

All those stories plus many my new book...
