​John Morrison Says He Learned A Lot From Eric Bischoff, Talks TNA/GFW & More


Johnny Mundo–the former John Morrison–spoke with Alternative Nation for a new
interview about his new role in Lucha Underground, working with Eric Bischoff
and more. Check out the highlights:

On Eric Bischoff: “Eric was great to work with. Gave me
some awesome insight into the business of Wrestling. At the time I was thinking
in terms of what I wanted to accomplish in the business, Eric talked in business
terms, what do people want to see, what will people pay for? Pro Wrestling is a
business, what can you do that people will pay to see you do? I really didn’t
appreciate the opportunity I had as ‘The Apprentice’ Johnny Nitro. All I wanted
to do at the time was wrestle.”

On Joey Mercury’s new on screen ‘corporate’ role: “Love
it. Every time I see Joey on TV I get so happy! That dude has lived wrestling
his entire life & is a genius in wrestling psychology. Working with him in
MNM was like teaming with a non annoying agent- haha. I couldn’t be happier to
see him back with WWE in a fun on air role & as an agent behind the scenes
as well. Of course if our paths ever crossed on-air, I’d have to let ‘Corporate
Joe’ know what a sell out he became and how badly Joey Matthews would’ve kicked
the crap out of Corporate Joe.”

On TNA and Global Force Wrestling: “I’m booked to wrestle
Jeff Jarrett on December 6th, might talk a little talk about Global Force. TNA
& I have had talks, I live in LA, Florida is far. Wrestling is a business,
the more promotions the better, more opportunities for wrestlers to work. Both
of those companies could be fun to work with. Right now I’m signed with Lucha
Underground and I’m happy with where I’m at. Backstage is great, no drama, great
shows, great people involved, and in my hometown of Los Angeles.”
