John Morrison returned to WWE television tonight after the company confirmed his return last month.
On tonight’s episode of SmackDown, The Miz attacked Kofi Kingston after Kingston picked up a win over Miz. Following a commercial break, Cathy Kelley knocked on the Miz’s door backstage to get an interview explaining why he attacked Kingston. John Morrison opened the door instead and told Kayla that The Miz didn’t have any comments.
It was reported by PWInsider back in September that Morrison had re-signed with WWE. It wasn’t confirmed by the company until December during an episode of WWE Backstage.
Morrison had originally been with WWE from 2002 to 2011, where at one point he was featured in a high profile tag team with The Miz. Since leaving WWE, Morrison had worked the independent scene as well as runs with Lucha Underground and AAA.
Morrison, under the name Johnny Impact, had most recently been with Impact Wrestling, winning their World title back in 2018.
