The Miami Herald has posted a new John Morrison interview/article where he talks about making it to the top of the WWE and what it took to get there. The following is an excerpt from the article:
“I think the main reason people take me more seriously now is my beard,” Morrison joked.
“I think that is the thing that has made the John Morrison character turn the corner and become looked at as a title contender. As someone people see or could see me in the ring with John Cena, The Rock and Steve Austin, even The Miz. I can’t believe I just said that, but The Miz is there. He is the WWE champion.
“All those guys were or are at the top for a reason. The more serious attitude, the aggression and the anger is something Johnny Nitro never had and John Morrison had been lacking prior to this year. I think I tapped into some very real things as would any method actor would.
