I never saw this man use his tennis racket for playing the game of tennis. I only saw him use it – and quite frequently, I will add – during wrestling bouts to whack the opponents of the Midnight Express with it while the ref was busy with some distraction or another. Jim Cornette and that tennis racket always gave the Midnight Express the upper hand in whoever they were facing.
In fact, that tennis racket is the only reason the Midnight Express ever amounted to anything. For that reason, Jim Cornette’s Tennis Racket has its own WCCW Wrestling All Stars trading card!
