Jim Cornette inducting The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express into the WWE Hall of Fame

WWE today announced that legendary manager Jim Cornette will be inducting The Rock ’n’ Roll Express into the WWE Hall of Fame in two weeks time.

Cornette is considered to be one of the biggest rivals for The Rock ’n’ Roll Express, managing The Midnight Express in an epic feud between the two teams and later The Heavenly Bodies.

“I said these horrible, degrading things about these two, fine, young, upstanding examples of American boyhood,” Cornette told WWE.COM. “And people, on numerous occasions, tried to kill us,” he added.

“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,” Cornette said. “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.”

Jim Cornette’s last appearance on WWE television was at WrestleMania X-Seven. He was fired from the WWE in July 2005.
