And then there’s Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson, better known as The Rock N Roll Express, and their arch rival, Jim Cornette and the Midnight Express.&nbsp; They're&nbsp;here as well.</p><p>From late 50s through the 80s, Charlotte was huge&nbsp;in the world of professional wrestling when the sport was dominated by Charlotte’s Jim Crockett Promotions. That era will be celebrated&nbsp;at the Mid-Atlantic Legends Fanfest at the University Hilton.&nbsp; You may remember&nbsp;Jim Cornette as the loud-mouthed, tennis racket-toting manager of the Midnight Express. He joined us to&nbsp;talk about wrestling in Charlotte.</p><p> Fri, 02 Aug 2013 13:53:57 +0000 Marshall Terry 32540 at http://wfae.org Fans Gather To Celebrate Charlotte's Wrestling History
