John Morrison will return to WWE television on the ECW brand this week as will all the other suspended talents. The biggest question surrounding his return will be whether or not he will get the ECW Championship back from CM Punk. Before his suspension, original plans called for Morrison to have a long-term title reign, however, Punk was given the title when there was no other option. Paul Heyman had suggested that the company put the strap on CM Punk before last yearâ<80><99>s December to Dismember pay-per-view; however, Vince McMahon referred to Punk as a â<80><9c>string beanâ<80> and said that no one would believe it. Morrison worked house shows over the weekend.
Speaking of returning talent, there is a good chance that Edge will be returning to WWE television very soon. One source reports that if he is not back by No Mercy he will be at Survivor Series in November at the latest. He is on the Survivor Series poster which is pretty much a confirmation he’ll be returning by then or at the PPV. I also talked with someone today who had been in contact with him and he’s claiming he’ll be back in about a month.
