From John W. Johnson: I was looking over the WWE website, and they still have Chris Benoit’s Royal Rumble win listed in the “Top Rumbers” List This, instead of having the link go back to the List This homepage
This week on ECW on Sci-Fi, ECW World Champion Johnny Nitro came out with a new look and a new ring name. Looking a lot like legendary rocker and deceased Doors frontman Jim Morrison, Nitro took the microphone and declared that from now on, he will be known as John Morrison. John Morrison, whose real name is actually John Hannigan, has used the “Johnny Nitro” ring name since debuting in WWE several years ago. After disappearing for a while, Nitro returned with Joey Mercury and Melina to form the very successful MNM tag team. With MNM dissolved, WWE wanted to truly give Nitro an identity of his own, albeit not a very original one. John Morrison will defend his ECW World Championship against CM Punk this Sunday on pay-per-view at the Great American Bash.
