Damn deserving but rock n roll should go in at same time as midnights and Cornette

They should do a swerve. As Cornette goes through his induction of the RnR stop right before he announces the names and goes into his speech about how great the midnights are and say they are the real inductees.

And then induct the RnR too.

But seriously why not have both teams and cornett.

He is the right person, but holy fuck. Hell has apparently frozen over.

Cornette is awesome for anything related to pre 1996 wrestling. The last 21 years have been rough though. He's working on a Smokey Mountain book which I can not wait to read.

Hopefully this will lead to a Midnight Express induction.

TheBearStare - What led to cornette leaving WWE? Was he fired?

It is a long, strange story. As I understand it he left Titan Towers by his own decision to run OVW. But he was fired from there by WWE decree for slapping Santino Marella around among other disagreements with WWE. Though I don't think WWE had the authority to actually force him out down there, he stepped down because they wanted him out.

TheBearStare - What led to cornette leaving WWE? Was he fired?

From his Wiki page


In May 2005, Cornette was suspended for several weeks after slapping OVW developmental wrestler Anthony Carelli backstage after Carelli had "no-sold" fellow wrestler The Boogeyman by laughing at him during a live OVW event. Shortly after Cornette returned from his suspension, a separate incident occurred and the WWE released him from his contract in July 2005. In the spring of 2007, Carelli, who had since been called up to the WWE as Santino Marella, appeared on a Canadian radio program where he publicly challenged Cornette to a match despite Cornette working for rival promotion TNA at the time.

Isn't anyone else actually impressed that WWE did something right and allowed Jim to do the induction.

I think Jim can be professional and knows it's about Ricky and Robert and not an opportunity to vent.

So the reason Ronnie Garvin win the World Title was because they wanted to split the express up?

Jim can be/is a bitter asshole, but he's not going to take liberties and air his grievances there if he thinks it will screw over Bobby, Stan and Dennis of getting in.

It seems unusual, but I imagine some thick ground rules were laid out about topics and where Johnny Ace is to be kept away from him and Vice versa and possibly Vince as well.
