Charlotte, NC (May 26, 2008) â€“ The National Wrestling AllianceÂ® is pleased to announce the addition of The Midnight Express: â€œLover Boyâ€ Dennis Condrey and â€œBeautifulâ€ Bobby Eaton to the NWAâ„¢ Hall of Fame. To many the â€œMidnightsâ€ (and with their Manager, NWAâ„¢ Hall of Famer James E. Cornette) are the very definition of tag team wrestling. Condrey, Eaton and Cornette are the most popular and most acclaimed version of the team and is celebrating their 25th anniversary together this year.
Over the yearâ€™s the Midnight Express has battled just about everyone on the Pro Wrestling scene. They were involved in memorable feuds over the NWAâ„¢ World Tag Team Championships with Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard, The Fantastics and The Road Warriors. Most fans would argue that the â€œMidnightâ€™sâ€ greatest foes were and still are NWAâ„¢ Hall of Famerâ€™s The Rock and Roll Express.
â€œWeâ€™ve always planned for something special for the people of Atlanta and with inducting the Midnight Express into our Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Express confirmed for the date our matchmakers have come up with a special attracting featuring these two great tag teams, â€˜The NWAâ„¢ Hall of Fame Match,â€™ it is our goal to make the NWAâ„¢ Hall of Game Match a special part of our larger events world wideâ€ stated Robert K.
