History of Wrestling: The Road Warriors destroy the Midnight Express for the NWA World Tag Titles

Today is the 21st anniversary of The Road Warrors (Hawk & Animal, w/ Paul Ellering) defeating The Midnight Express (Bobby Eaton & Stan Lane, w/ Jim Cornette) for the NWA World Tag Team Titles. The Midnights had just won the belts off of Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard barely one month before this match, when a newly turned heel Road Warriors finally demanded a title shot. Once the bell rings, the contest is over. The Midnights aren't just defeated, they're literally beaten, with Eaton getting a final tag title belt whipping before finally being rolled out of the ring.
