WWE Announces Who Will Induct The Rock’n’Roll Express Into The Hall Of Fame

WWE has announced that Jim Cornette will be inducting the Rock’n’Roll Express into the Hall Of Fame at this year’s ceremony.

Here is what Cornette had to say to WWE.com:

By any standard, Ricky and Robert belong in the Hall of Fame. And that’s whether its longevity as a team, the attendance records they set, or the great matches that they had, which fans can still see on WWE Network.

Superman needs Lex Luthor, Batman needs The Joker, and we (The Midnight Express managed by Cornette) were the antithesis of everything The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express stood for and their wrestling style. It just clicked.

I said these horrible, degrading things about these two, fine, young, upstanding examples of American boyhood, and people, on numerous occasions, tried to kill us.

Fans literally gave them pictures and gifts at the matches. They considered them members of the family. I’ve seen inside fans’ houses, and they would have pictures of Jesus on the wall, and next to it would be a picture of The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express. That’s no lie.

Between the ’80s with The Midnight Express and the ’90s with The Heavenly Bodies, and then in the 2000s on the reunions with The Midnights, I think only Bobo Brazil and The Sheik had a longer-running rivalry.

And I still haven’t put an end to Rock ‘n’ Roll! I haven’t been able to do it, so I guess I have to roll over and induct them.

There’s one story I’ll probably tell at the Hall of Fame where The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express saved my life one night in Louisiana from an angry mob of fans.

    I was without work for six months time when my early Fellow worker lastly recommended me to begin freelancing online… It was only just after I received $5000 in my 1st thirty days when I seriously believed I am able to do this for a living! Now I am joyful than ever… I work-at-home and I am my own boss now like I always wanted… I see so many discouraged people around me, working the same old boring job that’s sucking the daily life out of all of them day by day… Each time I notice anybody like that I say START FREELANCING MAN! This is where I started out >>>> http://s.id/2hh
