Janela And Kiss’ New Tag Team Name Upsets Jim Cornette

One of All Elite Wrestling’s most unorthodox and unique stars in “The Bad Boy” Joey Janela recently took to his Twitter account and said that he has been given permission to use the name “The New New Midnight Express” for his tag team with Sonny Kiss. He would then post a graphic of himself and Sonny Kiss with “Midnight Express” written below it.

The first and original legendary Midnight Express had Dennis Condrey and Randy Rose as the team members. The second incarnation of the legendary Midnight Express would then consists of Dennis Condrey, Bobby Eaton, Stan Lane and Jim Cornette as the manager.

This past August 18th, Jim Cornette, Dennis Condrey, Bobby Eaton, and Stan Lane reportedly filed to trademark the “Midnight Express” name.

Shortly after Joey Janela’s tweet, Jim Cornette’s lawyer, Stephen P. New reportedly issued a cease and desist to AEW saying, “We just trademarked that name a few months ago. Calling Megha now”. This is reportedly Jim Cornette’s lawyer calling out AEW’s Chief Legal Counsel Megha Parekh.

There is no word yet on if AEW actually plans to use the “Midnight Express” name, but more information and updates will be provided once it is made available.
