John Morrison returning to WWE


The man of many ring names is returning back to where he earned his first one as PW Insider's Mike Johnson reported Thursday morning that John Morrison is returning to WWE for the first time in eight years.

No contract details or start date was given. Our Dave Meltzer also confirmed the report.

The 39-year-old has remained busy since leaving WWE in late-2011 with runs in Lucha Underground, AAA, and Impact Wrestling. He has also been involved with several independent film projects and TV shows including an appearance on CBS' Survivor.

Morrison (real name John Hennigan) won a developmental contract on the third season of WWE Tough Enough in 2002. After working in OVW, he earned a brief call-up in 2004 before coming up full-time in 2005 as part of MNM with Joey Mercury and Melina. During his six years in WWE, he won the Intercontinental title three times, the tag team titles five times, and the ECW title once.
