We all thought that when John Morrison was getting pushed in late 2010, that he was finally going to become a major champion. Unfortunately, John Morrison was pushed to make WWE Champion The Miz look much better as a champion. The match has made The Miz’s wrestling skills look better in some peoples eyes, but if you watched the championship match between Miz and Morrison, John did all the cool moves, and Miz was the less impressive in my eyes. Deep down we all know that The Miz is not the most watched champion, and if you compare him to previous champs he isn’t even close. It’s sad because John Morrison is loved by the WWE Universe, and the WWE Universe wouldn’t mind him becoming the WWE or World Champion. John Morrison has proved to the WWE Universe that he is arguably the best athlete in the WWE. John Morrison participated in a WWE Championship Match against The Miz on Raw’s very first telecast of the year, and the match is most likely going to be the match of the year. The match was epic, but Morrison lost the match in the end. Since Morrison coming short of winning the WWE Championship to Miz, he seems like he has been demoted back to mid-card status once again. You would expect the storyline to continue between The Miz and John Morrison, but that’s not the case. He has returned to mid-card status and has been fighting the same mid-carders like he always has.
This isn’t the first time John Morrison has been misused since his current stint in the WWE. It doesn’t make sense to me because John Morrison had rivalries with Miz and CM Punk before they rose to main-event status. Now that they have both obtained major championships, it would be smart for the creative team to move Morrison up there with them. John Morrison is a better athlete than CM Punk and certainly WWE Champion The Miz. John Morrison in my opinion has the best finishing move in the WWE, which is the “Knee of the Temple.”I’m not knocking CM Punk because he is an incredible athlete and has great mic skills; The Miz is a paper champion on the other hand. The only reason why I think the WWE writers has hesitated to push John Morrison is because of his mic skills, and he has become the main event jobber in recent time. John Morrison has a huge fan base, and the women always cheer for him when he makes his entrance to the ring. As a singles wrestler, Morrison has reigned 4 times as a champion in the WWE. He has captured the intercontinental championship three times. His only major championship was the ECW championship, and the title has been discontinued by the WWE. The only reason why he won that major title is because he was picked to win it following the death of WWE Legend Chris Benoit. His title reign was on 69 days before losing the title to CM Punk.
After John Morrison lost the ECW World Championship, 10 others wrestlers have captured the title before it being discontinued. Out of the 10 guys who won the ECW title after Morrison, 5 of them reigned as champion longer than John Morrison. That is a very alarming statistic and is very sad to be quite honest. From the looks of Morrison current state in the WWE, it looks like he won’t ever capture a major championship. Be honest with me, would like you like to see John Morrison as a WWE or World Champion this year?
