John Hennigan worked two different stints with the WWE. He debuted for the company during the Ruthless Aggression Era in 2004. The former Johnny Nitro formed a tag team called MNM with Melina and Joey Mercury. He parted ways with the company in 2011.

The 42-year-old worked for various independent wrestling promotions including Lucha Underground and Impact Wrestling from 2012 to 2019. He returned to the Stamford-based promotion in 2019 under the ring name John Morrison and reunited with The Miz.

His second stint, however, proved to be short lived as Hennigan was let go by the WWE in November 2021. The company cited budget cuts as reason for Hennigan’s release. The former WWE Intercontinental Champion returned to the independent scene following the expiration of his non-compete clause in 2022.

Hennigan will be making his debut for Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport event. He will compete at Bloodsport 8 on March 31. Game Changer Wrestling (GCW), which holds the event, has yet to reveal an opponent for Hennigan. Here’s the official announcement in regards to Hennigan’s debut:
