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. That being said, it seems John Morrison once started a riot before a match with Rey Mysterio.

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.

He has faced off against the best of the best the pro wrestling world has to offer during his time in Vince McMahon’s company over the years. This includes even Rey Mysterio.

While speaking on Power Up with Tony Horton, John Morrison recalled the time he started a riot in Mexico (Piedras Negras) when wrestling Rey Mysterio while working in AAA. Needless to say, things got out of hand.


While in the ring, John Morrison was hit by a can of beer thrown by a fan in the front row. Standing close to where the beer was thrown, he picked up the beer and tried to get even. This ultimately led to a riot.

“I threw it back and hit the guy – it might not have been the same guy – in the face in the front row.

Rey Mysterio grabbed the mic and goes, ‘Guys settle down. I’m about to kick Johnny Mundo’s a** and I don’t need you to throw this stuff.

About a minute goes by and security is like, ‘everyone out!'”

John Morrison made it clear he is glad the riot only happened once and would “be cool with it if it never happened again.” Regardless, it’s a memory to remember no matter what.
