Former WWE Star Believes Royal Rumble Appearance Wouldn’t Be The Worst Thing In The World

Former WWE Star Believes Royal Rumble Appearance Wouldn’t Be The Worst Thing In The World WWE

A former WWE star believes Royal Rumble appearance wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.

This Saturday, January 28, WWE will present the 2023 Royal Rumble. The titular matches have always been known for its surprises and returning stars coming back.

Thus far, only 15 men have declared for the Men’s Royal Rumble match with 15 spots open to surprises for the event.

In a new interview with Chris Van Vliet, John Morrison was asked about a possible return in the Royal Rumble. He answered:

“That wouldn’t be the worst thing. Imagine how cool that would be for WWE. I have a ton of unfinished business. Unfinished business with my frenemy, The Miz, and a ton of people on the roster.”

“In the business of professional wrestling, if you look at the rosters of Raw, SmackDown, NXT, Rampage, Dynamite, IMPACT, MLW, Ring of Honor, NWA, I have a personal history and issues with everybody.”

“Not everybody, but a lot of people on every one of those rosters. It would be great to go back to WWE, it would be great to go to any one of those rosters because there is a ton of unfinished business, a ton of new matchups, and mostly because I like wrestling.”

Morrison was released from WWE in November 2021 despite being embroiled in a program with his former tag team partner The Miz.

When asked if he ever felt a release was coming at that time, Morrison answered:

“I feel like I had a good vibe in my head of where I stood. I didn’t think I was getting released, until the end when I realized I was trying to do a character that had been convoluted and tweaked and tweaked until it kind of became impossible, and then I started thinking, ‘I wouldn’t be surprised if I got released.’ Then, it happened.”

When it was mentioned that his feud with The Miz was going somewhere, the former WWE star replied:

“It was. It’s not the first time and it won’t be the last time that happens with WWE or any wrestling organization in general.”

“It would be great to go back there and pick that up, but if it doesn’t happen, you know what, it’s not the end of the world for me. Sucks for Miz, he needs the help [laughs].”
