Spring 1984...Mid-South "Last Stampede" series of matches pitting Bill Watts and Stagger Lee (JYD) vs. The Midnight Express. According to Cornette, they ran 17 towns and drew $1.2 million.
The stipulations were, if the Express won, Bill Watts would have to "work for" Jim Cornette's mother for 90 days, and Stagger Lee must unmask. If Watts/Lee won, Jim Cornette would have to, depending on the town, wear a dress, wear a diaper, or be "tarred and feathered".
I'm wondering, which towns had whch of the three "punishments" for Corny. I know that he wore a dress in Houston, and a diaper in New Orleans.

In Baton Rouge, Cornette had to wear a dress. In Oklahoma City, Cornette had to wear a diaper and was fed a bottle.

Cornette reportedly has records of at least 95 percent of the M.E.'s matches. Rumor has it he will be publishing a record book. If that happens, we'll know all the cities.

Awesome. Back then, he claimed to have kept records of who the MX's match was against, what cycle of TV was running in the town, who won, what the finish was, what the house was, and what he got paid.

Dundee has all of that stuff too (all of his booking records), though he said on one of those radio links that he thinks he wants to keep it for himself.
