John Morrison releases a statement after his release from WWE!
'Didn't even get a best of luck in your future endeavours…… they could’ve at least got the tagline right'
Over the past two years in the pandemic era, WWE have been on a releasing spree to say the least, and one of the most recent victims of this was none other than John Morrison.
Although his release doesn’t exactly come as a surprise as he had been sidelined a few months prior, and probably because the writers had nothing for him as the Ms is currently on dancing with the stars, it still stings a bit for Morrison himself as well as his fans…
Although he was released a month or so ago, this is the first statement he’s released since being let go from the company, I suppose it’s taking him this long because he wanted to compose a well thought out and concise response rather than a emotional one…
In a video he posted on his Instagram account, he had this to say:
“I want you all to know how grateful I am for the support you gave me during this past run with WWE. I also want you to know that I did in fact receive a phone call from John Laurinaitis, during win hich he told me that my services as a talent were no longer required by WWE. Didn’t even get a best of luck in your future endeavors. I mean, if you’re gonna let me go at least get your catchphrase right?"
Morrison went on to explain why many people are drawn towards professional wrestling, and how this past WWE run helped him rekindle friendships from over a decade ago:
“I don’t know if it’s something that draws people to professional wrestling or something that happens to people when they’ve been in the business for a long enough time but my mind always races towards ways to pop the crowd, even at my own expense. The whole idea of making yourself look bad to make someone else look good, is a strange thing. But for me, it’s such an important part of what I do. And it’s a foreign concept to so many people. I think that’s why this past run with WWE meant so much to me, you know, I saw and spoke to people that I hadn’t seen in 10 years. The chance to reconnect with old friends, make new friends. Work with some of the best production people in the business, some of the best professional wrestlers in the business,”
He had also added that besides being able to do the flips and the tricks and even the hair flicks, the most important part of professional wrestling is to have the ability to tell stories, and he knows now that he is a storyteller and that this is only the end of a chapter, not the end of the story.
Judging by this statement from Morrison, it seems safe to say that this will not be the last we see of him, but the question is, where will he end up? I guess we will just have to wait-and-see…
