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. He was released by WWE last year and has worked hard to become a big deal again in the indies. Unfortunately, it seems he was on the shelf due to an injury.

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 Power Up with Tony Horton, John Morrison talked about the professional wrestling business. Morrison stated that he believes there are two different types of performers in professional wrestling: businessmen and artists.

“I think there’s two types of people in wrestling. There’s businessmen and artists, and businessmen really just want to make the most money. Like, what does the office wants from me? Like what would put me in a better position politically? It’s a lot of mindsets versus, what’s the coolest sequence I could do? Or what would pop the crowd? Or I’m going to be in New York; what would be cool in New York? I think that’s like a big distinction, and sometimes it like coincides, and sometimes it doesn’t.”


Morrison revealed that he was facing some injuries that prevented him from wrestling. Horton mentioned that Morrison was facing abductor and hip flexor problems but did not elaborate on the specific injury diagnosis. Flexors enable the hip to flex at the waist, while abductors enable the hip to move away from the body’s midline.

“It would be really stupid to. I feel like I’m getting better. And if I continue to get better. I think I’ll make a full recovery. And if I fully tear any of those ligaments…”

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 returned to the ring at The Wrestling Showcase over the Labor Day weekend. Following that, he has competed in several independent events and participated in the January 7th Major League Wrestling TV tapings.
