John Morrison was one of the highlights of WWE television after he returned to the company in 2019. Morrison has already admitted that his WWE return didn’t quite go as expected.

The Guru of Greatness had incredible performances in the company and impressed many fans. He even had solid matches working with The Miz, among others. He also debuted his ”Johnny Drip Drip” character during his final run in WWE, where he carried a water stick with him.

While speaking on with Steve Fall of “NBC Sports Boston, John Morrison revealed nixed plans for his drip stick. Apparently, WWE had some plans for that character trait that might have landed with fans.

First of all, I wrote, ‘I’m gonna moisten someone up with my drip stick,’ you know, in a promo as it’s kind of a joke. So Vince reads that and goes like, ‘Drip stick? We’re gonna make a fortune on these drip sticks.’ He loves it. I wanted to have my entrance and then stand in the turnbuckle and everyone shoot me with the drip sticks. It was going in that direction until people realized the arena then would be soaking wet and the water would be everywhere. And then [Vince] decided we can’t sell drip sticks. It was so close, but I think that would have put it over the top.”


Morrison also didn’t want to stay in WWE after the company fired his wife, Taya Valkyrie. Morrison has worked for multiple promotions since being released by WWE including AEW, GCW, AAA, and PROGRESS. Morrison is having a good time in the indies right now, and that’s what matters to him. Only time will tell where we see him next.
