Robert Gibson (born Ruben Cain, July 19 1958) is a professional wrestler. He is famous as half of the tag team known as Rock 'N Roll Express, with Ricky Morton.


Cain started wrestling as Robert Gibson in 1977. He was trained by his brother Ricky Gibson and teamed with Ricky in the southern independents when he started.

In 1983, he formed the Rock 'N Roll Express with Ricky Morton. They feuded with The Midnight Express, Bobby Eaton and Dennis Condrey in the Mid-South and the feud carried over into the NWA's Jim Crockett Promotions in 1985. They won the NWA Tag Titles four times while there and feuded with the Four Horsemen, Ivan and Nikita Koloff, and the team of Rick Rude and Manny Fernandez. Even though he and Morton were of similar build and wrestled a similar style, Gibson was always booked as the stronger and more powerful of the two. Quite often, Morton would rally the crowd by taking punishment as the "face" in peril, crawling to his corner, and then making the "hot tag" to Gibson.

Gibson was injured in 1990 and when he returned to WCW in 1991, Morton turned on him to join the "York Foundation". They feuded and Gibson teamed with Tom Zenk, but had no success and soon left WCW. He rejoined Morton in Smoky Mountain Wrestling and they feuded with the "Heavenly Bodies" led by Jim Cornette. Shortly before SMW's demise, Gibson turned heel and joined "Cornette's Army".

The team came back briefly to WCW in 1996. In 1998, they were part of the "NWA" angle in the WWF for a brief period. Their last run in a big federation was with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling when they were part of Vince Russo's Sports Entertainment Xtreme faction. Appeared at one Wrestle Birmingham show in 2002 as "Robert Fuller, Jr." pretending to be the son of veteran wrestler Robert Fuller, gimmick also used by other wrestlers.

In December 2006, Gibson became an assistant trainer for "Ohio Valley Wrestling", but was released from the WWE on October 13, 2007 following an altercation with CM Punk and Tony Atlas.

He is currently one half of the Ultimate Wrestling Tag Team Champions along with Bobby Doll in Ultimate Wrestling, a promotion in his home town of Pensacola, Florida.

Personal life

On September 15, 2006, his brother, Ricky Gibson, died.

He knows sign language and often spoke with his hands in the ring before his matches.

His son, Jason Gibson, is also a wrestler.

He is part owner of Zeke's Deep Sea Fishing tours in Orange Beach, Alabama.

Gibson has a wandering eye. Wrestling manager Jim Cornette often made fun of it in his interviews when the Rock 'N Roll Express feuded with The Midnight Express.
