John Morrison has seen it all in the world of professional wrestling, and he believes there are two different types of performers in it.
Former WWE Superstar John Morrison (John Hennigan) was a guest on Power Up with Tony Horton to discuss a wide variety of subjects. During the discussion, Morrison said 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,” John Morrison said. “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.”
At the time this interview was recorded, Morrison was dealing with some injuries that kept him out of the ring. Horton noted that Morrison was dealing with some abductor and hip flexor issues, but didn’t get into detail about the exact injury diagnosis. Flexors allow the hip to bend at the waist while abductors allow the hip to move away from the body’s midline of the body.
When he was asked if he could get in the ring at that point, Morrison admitted it would be very stupid to do and felt if he continued to get better, he’d make a full recovery.
“It would be really stupid to,” John Morrison admitted. “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…”
WrestleZone has learned that this episode in question was filmed in late August. Morrison was sidelined from in-ring action from July 11 to September 3. He was pulled from a few appearances, including one for IWC and Northeast Wrestling on July 31. Morrison did not publicly comment on the injury at the time it was announced.
Morrison made his return to the ring at The Wrestling Showcase on Labor Day weekend. Since then, Morrison competed at several independent events and appeared at the January 7 Major League Wrestling television tapings. You can check out spoilers from that show by clicking here.
