• Old School NWA Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School Wrestling Veteran Dennis Condrey celebrates his 68th birthday today.
In 1980, Dennis founded the original version of the legendary Pro Wrestling Tag Team ‘The Midnight Express’ with his Team partner Randy Rose, but later on in 1984 Rose was replaced with Bobby Eaton and they added Jim Cornette as their manager.
The Midnight Express is still considered one of the most famous Tag Teams in Wrestling history and nobody will be surprised, once they will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame one day, although knowing WWE, they will probably induct the more famous later version of the team, where Condrey was already replaced with Stan Lane.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DENNIS CONDREY!
