Over two months after it was first reported, WWE has confirmed that John Morrison (John Hennigan) is returning to the company.

The official announcement of Morrison returning was made on tonight's episode of WWE Backstage. WWE.com noted that the contract Morrison signed is a multi-year deal.

Morrison tweeted about the announcement: "Confirmed. I have signed with @WWE - I’ve never been as good at anything as I am at wrestling & I can’t wait to stand again in a #WWE ring opposite the most talented people in the business"

WWE Backstage's Ryan Satin said that creative ideas for Morrison's return are still being worked on and it isn't clear when Morrison will make his first appearance or which brand he'll be on.

PWInsider first reported that Morrison had signed with WWE in September, with their report also being confirmed by Dave Meltzer.

Morrison departed Impact Wrestling after Slammiversary XVII this July. He was a one-time World Champion while with Impact.

When Morrison returns, it will be the first time he's appeared for WWE since 2011.
