After a 8-year absence John Morrison is returning to WWE. The announcement was made on last week's episode of WWE Backstage. As Morrison prepares for his return, he made an appearance on The Bump to discuss his earlier departure from the company.
Here's what he had to say:
On why he left WWE for so long: “When I left in 2011, I meant to take like a year off. I wanted to take a year off. I wanted to make some movies and do my own thing for a little bit, and that year turned in to eight years, it’s crazy how fast the time flew. And part of it was because I was having a lot of fun wrestling for all these places. And every time you wrestle for another place, you sign a contract, and then they want to have you sign for longer and extend and extend. And I felt like I was really a big part of all these organizations Lucha Underground, Impact, AAA, 5 Star. I was like the guy, the brand ambassador and it was cool having all that autonomy.”
On why he is returning to WWE now: “I think I was just having so much fun doing what I was doing and I always meant to come back here and at this point when I realized, I was like, ‘Man, I better get my ass back to WWE before 10 years goes by,’ because time is flying.”
