Look out Midnight Express!  Here comes your biggest rivals!

That’s right, debuting in the Legends game this holiday season is one of the most popular tag teams in history, Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson, the Rock ‘N’ Roll Express!  The 80’s heart throbs tore up the wrestling scene in the southern US in the 80’s.  Their clashes with Jim Cornette and the Midnight Express are legendary, as are their matches with Cornette’s Heavenly Bodies in the early 90’s.  Now Legends fans can recreate both feuds in their feds!

Jim Cornette is Out to Stir Up Trouble in Legends!

With the recent announcements of the Midnight Express and the Heavenly Bodies, it’s only natural that the manager that formed both duos would also be represented in Legends with a new color card.  Perhaps one of the greatest and most certainly one of the most disruptive managers in wrestling history, Cornette and his trusty tennis racket were a constant thorn in the sides of many baby face tag teams.  Who will Cornette manage in your Legends fed?  The Midnight Express?  The Heavenly Bodies?  Or perhaps a super stable with both teams!  Its up to you promoter!

Jim Cornette will be part of a special edition manager two pack that will be released the same time as the new Legends 12-pack.  Thats 14 awesome new Legends to add to your collection this holiday season!  Keep an eye out this week for the other name in this must have set.  Preorder for this new 12 card Legends of Wrestling expansion starts on Black Friday November 24th and shipping starts December 12th along with the latest expansions from Ring of Honor and Champions of the Galaxy.

The Heavenly Bodies Add to the Growing Legends Tag Team Ranks

Adding to the recently announced Midnight Express is another tag team familiar to the southern wrestling scene, the Heavenly Bodies.  Stan Lane and Tom Prichard formed the infamous duo in the early 90’s and captured gold immediately.  Both men were renowned tag team wrestlers, with multiple partners over the years.  In fact, Stan Lane may be even more well known for his time as part of the Midnight Express.  Will Lane team more often with Prichard or Bobby Eaton in your fed?  Either way the tag team division in legends is heating up!

More Legends names will continue to be announced throughout this week and then each week until release.  Preorder for this new 12 card Legends of Wrestling expansion starts on Black Friday November 24th and shipping starts December 12th along with the latest expansions from Ring of Honor and Champions of the Galaxy.

Midnight Express Comes to Legends Color

Leading off the Legend of Wrestling color expansion set is one of the most nefarious tag teams in wrestling history, the Midnight Express.  Although there were many iterations of the Midnight Express, arguably the most popular tandem was “Loverboy” Dennis Condrey and “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton.  Now this legendary tag team can join your Legends promotion in full color to take on other great tag teams like the Road Warriors.

Keep any eye out over the coming weeks for more huge names in this must have Legends expansion set, which features 12 wrestler cards.  Preorder starts on Black Friday November 24th and shipping starts December 12th along with the latest expansions from Ring of Honor and Champions of the Galaxy.
