Joey Janela and Sonny Kiss have apparently come up with a tag team name and what they have come up with is definitely not going to make Jim Cornette happy.
On Sunday, Janela said that he and Kiss have gotten permission to use the name “New New Midnight Express.” That is a takeoff on the legendary Midnight Express that originally included Dennis Condrey and Randy Rose. The second incarnation of the team consisted of Condrey, Bobby Eaton, Stan Lane, and manager Jim Cornette.
Currently, there is no owner for the “Midnight Express” trademark but there was an application filed for ownership on 8/21/20 by Cornette, Eaton and Condrey. If that trademark goes live then it could lead to a legal battle between the parties involved.
