Some scary news early last week for one of wrestling’s greatest as Ricky Morton announced via his School Of Morton podcast that he suffered a Bell’s Palsy attack.

“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,” Morton said.

The WWE Hall Of Famer was concerned he was having a stroke initially, but wants fans rest assure that he is a-okay physically.

“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.”

Hopefully he doesn’t get a Jim Ross level case of it.

Ricky Morton doing Canadian Destroyers at a million years old is one of the best things ever.

Reffed him 20+ years ago. He struggled to get around then.

The fact he is still wrestling is one of life's great mysteries.
