I was just watching some tag matches on YouTube between the Midnight Express and a bunch of other teams. They could sure go with any style and any team. Bobby has to be the most underrated wrestler in the history of pro wrestling. These Guys could do it all. How they're not in the WWE Hall of Fame is beyond me. Time to get Bobby, Dennis, Stan, and Cornett in the Hall where they belong.

They got permission to use the movie theme from 1978.

Bobby Eaton was a gym membership away from being a huge star in wrestling, imo.

Bobby Eaton had a face like Carlton Fisk's favorite catcher's mitt. He was a HELL of wrestler.

DaveFu -

Probably the coolest entrance theme ever, imo.

They were a dream for promoters. Cornette could get heat anywhere anytime and they could work with any team and make the match look like a million bucks. The Rock n Roll Express is in the HOF, the Midnight definitely deserves to be there as well.

Oh and there is a hilarious match out there where Stan and Bobby wrestle some jobber that apparently had a BO issue and neither wanted to even touch the guy.



Hilarious, Stan goes to pick the guy up, and just walks away.

Haha

 

They also might hold a record for beating up drunk fans who tried to get to Cornette.

Loved the Eaton/Lane version most. Both as heels, them vs Hart Foundation is a dream match of mine. With both Jimmy's on the outside. The Megaphone vs The Tennis Racket.
