It's been nearly a year since we've seen the Monday/Friday Night Delight on WWE TV since his "release" last year. Nobody can deny, however, his Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber feats prove his ability to show off his skill and execution.

Not only that, he's shown he knows his way around the ring and I believe WWE could use him right now. I'd love a Bryan/Morrison feud. It would be a great buildup to John Morrison's first WWE Championship.

Now that's getting ahead of the current situation. I believe WWE is interested in bringing him back, as they should be. He's a great talent. They shouldn't drop the ball with him like they did last year.

THIS IS NOT A SPOILER SAYING HE'S RETURNING.

I'm just bringing my opinion that I say he should return. He's got the look and the charisma to make it as a big star and he could be a huge part of WWE's future since he's still fairly young.

Let's take a look at what he's accomplished in his career, though.

MNM - Johnny Nitro, Melina, Joey Mercury
This team had a very good look to them. The show-offs with the girl and the red carpet and paparazzi. It was a great gimmick that lasted for a while, as they collected championship gold. Johnny Nitro was for sure the star of the group.

ECW Johnny Nitro
When he disbanded with MNM after Joey Mercury's accident in the Fatal-Four-Way Tag Team Ladder Match in late 2006, he went on into ECW where in late summer of 2007, he captured the ECW Championship by defeating CM Punk. He was, of course, a heel at this time. He would then move back a step to the tag team division again by joining The Miz

The Miz and John Morrison
After Johnny Nitro changed his ring name to John Morrison, he teamed with The Miz to capture multiple championships but the team ended up ending in a sense when they lost to Carlito and Primo at Wrestlemania in a Unified Championship Match.

The Friday Night Delight!
John Morrison then was gone to Smackdown where he found success in the singles division. He feuded with Dolph Ziggler for a good while over the Intercontinental Championship. He showed his true colors and proved he works best as a face.

I'm going to skip ahead to December 2010 where he defeated Sheamus in a Ladder Match at TLC PPV to become the number one contender to The Miz's WWE Championship. Instead of waiting, he decided to use his opportunity on the first RAW of 2011. He lost to Miz in a Falls Count Anywhere match, but showed he deserved to be main eventing.

Post-Wrestlemania 27
John Morrison and John Cena both became #1 contender to the WWE Championship and were in a Steel Cage match with The Miz. Though John Morrison did not walk out champion, again, he proved to be main event material.



Now that we've analyzed his career, you can see he's made progress. He deserves to be put as a top star. Will he return soon? Who knows. Will he return at all? Who knows. Do we want him to? I'd say yes. He's a great wrestler, has a great look, and can get the fans on their feet screaming. What more could you want?

Thanks for reading!

As always,
Stay Classy!

Nice blog but sorry he'll NEVER be WWE Champion. He just lacks so many things.

Been just over half a year, why not, the title picture needs something fresh, no offewnse but Bryan has become Ortonish(esque), if he isn't after one he's after the other, Del Rio is being booked for the sake of it, Y2J has become Main-Event filler & Kane is the GM if every storyline, if you can fit...

Yeah I gotta agree with Kris, he lacks the ability to talk on the mic, you've seen his borderline dreadful promos. He doesn't has that much technique, he's always flipping around. Yes I know he's a "high flyer" as they call them but some will actually stop flying for a while and throw around some go...

Isn't he supposed to be away for a year or some crap? He'd be a good US champ instead of Santino.

I would like to see him back. He might never be WHC material (mostly because of his inability to charm a microphone), but he would sure add some excitement again. Morrison vs Ziggler or Kofi or Truth or Bryan or Rhodes... would all be pretty good matches. A faction of Miz, Morrison, Hawkins, and Rek...

*laugh* Im always ready for John Morrison.
I'd really like to see him back, even if he should stay there as a pure midcarder. His moves were entertaining and he certainly was "different" and outstanding.

I'm kinda hoping he gets a TNA contract and is the one to take the X-Division title off of Ion... Bit of a pipe dream I know, as Sorenson is being set up for that role... It would be good though...

Wouldn't mind seeing him back on the E as well, but he has the potential to do more than the handcuffs ...

Dude you're forgetting probably his biggest achievement & accolade...

if he goes to TNA, without a doubt they will desperately put the title on him to make sure they get ratings. And that would be a great thing for him; he would get the feeling, the maturity, & midset of a Champion. I will take it a ...

Pumbaa, me and you usually butt heads every now and then, but I actually agree with you, he would do better at TNA. That might just be the thing that pulls me towards TNA, my favorite wrestler.

"And for all you people that think he isn't main-event quality & Bryan is, man you guys must be Helen Keller in a vegetative state...."

Very well put Jesus.... I agree that him holding the X-division title would also help him... But I wouldn't go so far as to say he's in RVDs league, HBKs easily, but...

Never said he wasn't main event worthy just not wwe champ worthy. I don't even like Bryan.

Man you must not know how gay I am for HBK... *sigh*

No one will ever be in HBK's league(IMO) The greatest period. However(IMO) RVD is very close to it, in my eyes RVD had the potential to be the next HBK when he came to WWE or dare say a little bit better. Better because He obviously has better wre...

@Pumbaa: I know, I spent like 20 mins trying to find the right way to insult the people who think Bryan deserves his push more than Morrison.

@Angela: I threw that insult to the dudes, I wouldn't dare to insult, talk down, or offend any lovely young lady here or anywhere else for that matter.
