Midnight Express

In this interview Highspots struts down memory lane with arguably the greatest tag team ofall time, the original Midnight Express; "Beautiful" Bobby Eaton and "Loverboy" Dennis Condrey.

The former NWA World Tag Team Champions discuss their respective starts in the business, as well as the origins of the Midnight Express as a six-man tag team unit. Hear Eaton and Condrey recall their first impressions of each other, as well as their legendary manager Jim Cornette.
From there the Midnights take you through their stints in Mid-South, World Class, and of course the NWA. Along the way you'll hear details of their classic feuds with the Rock 'n' Roll Express, Road Warriors and Fantastics, as well as their infamous string of scaffold matches.
Among the topics discussed candidly are the rigors and temptations of being on the road 7 days a week and its effect on their personal lives, oft-time violent run-ins with fans, Condrey's initial departure from the NWA and replacement by Stan Lane, the Midnight Express vs. "Original" Midnight Express feud which put the two on opposing sides, and Condrey's controversial decision to leave the promotion prior to the feud's conclusion.
Finally the pair recall their recent, emotional reunion with each other and Cornette after years of estrangement, how it feels to return to the ring and rekindle their battles with the Rock 'n' Roll Express in 2004, and give their opinions on the current state of the wrestling industry.
 
Ricky Morton
 
Ricky Morton has lived and breathed professional wrestling since birth. His father was a infamous referee and Ricky naturally worked himself into the business at an early age. Few people have traveled more miles than Ricky Morton, working with every territory in the 80s before hitting the national scene with Jim Crockett's territory. He has always been one of the hardest workers to ever lace the boots. Rock and Roll has never died, as he has survived throughout the changes, and is still competing on the indy circuit today. Always a great interview on TV, Ricky Morton turned it on for our cameras as well with some incredible stories from his career.
 
Ringside Chat with Tully Blanchard
 
This ringside chat focuses on Tully Blanchard and his time with Crockett Promotions. Tully Blanchard discussed, in depth,all his feuds while in Jim Crockett promotions including Ricky Steamboat over the TV title,Wahoo McDaniel, Dusty Rhodes, Magnum TA over the US Title, Rock 'n' Roll Express for the Tag Titles, Road Warriors, and the entire ride as a member of the 4 Horsemen and all their stories and various groupings. He discussed all the behind the scenes stories involving these feuds and reasons why he and Dusty worked together so often, why Baby Doll's run was cut so short, how drugs cost him so much money, and explaining why the Horsemen were as successful as they were and why subsequent attempts to recreate that magic hasn't been duplicated.
Tully spent a great deal of explaining his philosphy on putting together an exciting wrestling match and how his style is different than many others. He critiqued his "I Quit" match against Magnum TA and some of the things he didn't like about that match watching it 20 years later.
Tully identifies the exact point when he knew Crockett Promotions was in trouble and who was to blame for this change in business.
 
Tommy Young
 
Shoot interview with the senior referee of the old NWA. Tommy Young refereed some of the most historic bouts of all time. You can see him in a special interview on the Ric Flair Triple DVD set as he explains to the fans what is now called "The Dusty Finish" as to why Ric Flair retained his title.

Tommy Young speaks about his early start in Detroit under The Sheik. He started as a wrestler and remembers his matches with such wrestlers as Abdullah the Butcher and Andre the Giant (during Andre's first North American tour).

Tommy tells of how he became a referee. He was at a show when the referee no-showed. He volunteered to referee instead of wrestle for the the night, and he stuck with it. He got praise from those working around him, and he decided to stop wrestling and just work as a referee.

He talks about some of the early matches he got to referee from Flair-Steamboat to Brisco-Funk.

Young worked for the outlaw IWA after leaving the Detroit area when George Scott, the promoter for Mid-Atlantic area, saw him. He was asked to join Crockett's Mid-Atlantic area, and that is where he stayed until 1989.

The interview will talk about all the names of the day: Abdullah the Butcher, plenty of Ric Flair stories, Dusty Rhodes, the Crockett Family, Wahoo McDaniel, Nikita Koloff, Lex Luger, Barry Windham and everyone else.

Young has no attachment to wrestling anymore, and he is not worried about burning any bridges. If he hates a guy, he says so. Young had all the insight any other wrestler of the day had. He saw all the talk and drugs and cheating and hustling.

This interview isn't just about Tommy Young, the referee, but the era of the time. The names you know. What were they really like?

What were some classic ribs pulled? What were some distasteful ribs?

Young shares for the first time the story of a Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat match gone bad. And we mean bad as Flair and Steamboat wrestled in a ring full of human crap. Who's crap was it? How did it happen? How did the two men continue to wrestle? This story is not only amazing but hilarious.

Young speaks about such memorable bouts as Starrcade 1985's main event with the classic 'Dusty Finish' where Young had to discuss the situation in a televised interview the following week. Also, Young speaks about Nikita Koloff's memorable exposure at Starrcade '86. Also, Young remembers Halloween Havoc 1989 where the cage caught fire and he had to beat the fire out with his hand.

Young speaks about other referees of the time including Randy 'Pee Wee' Anderson, Nick Patrick, Dave Hebner, Earl Hebner, Dick Worle and more.

Young speaks very open and candid about his ring ending injury during a televised match between Tommy Rich and Mike Rotundo. He speaks of it in great detail as well his lawsuit with WCW that followed. You won't believe what Young got for the injury and who advised him to sue.

The WWE came knocking for two nights in 1998. Who got him in? Was it played out as planned? What kind of time did he have? How did the WWE treat him? Who backstage did he see for the first time in over 10 years?

This is one of those interviews where it is the stories that tell the story. Young, although well known, really had some great insite and stories that no one else has.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Best deal for old school NWA fans!!!, 1.11.2014
Reviewer: chad fisher (Charleston, WV)

just received this package yesterday and after only watching 3 dvds so far, i feel i got way more than my moneys worth on this set. Highly recommended for fans of the 80s NWA era. for me Tommy Young's was worth the price alone.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Awesome Deal., 4.2.2010
Reviewer: Ryan Tourgee (Cranston, RI)

I'm glad I waited for this set. I was going to pay $20 for the TA/Koloff shoot alone and to get all these for $25 is a steal. I plan on getting more and would highly reccomend these sets.

Reviewer: Thomas Kruthoffer (Independence, KY)

"You need to buy this set!! 5 shoot interviews for $25.00 is an incredible deal. While I have not watched any of the videos in their entirety yet

 

4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Great Deal, 4.2.2010
Reviewer: emily boykin (hollywood, SC)

The only complaint I have with this set is my Ricky Morton DVD did not have sound for about 15- 20 minutes of the interview. The Tommy Young shoot is actually 2 discs long so that kind of made up for it.
