John Morrison Says Last Week’s Episode Of RAW Was One Of The Best In Awhile


During a recent interview with DAZN, WWE Superstar John Morrison revealed that he thought last week’s RAW was one of the better episodes in a long time, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On the Johnny Drip-Drip nickname: “It actually started while we were in the car together when we were doing shows for Impact, and I started freestyle rapping to Cardi B. I don’t know if you know this or not, but my freestyle rapping I like to do it, but I wouldn’t say it’s great. I’ll put it that way. But it evolved because then on our very first song that The Miz and I did, it was, ‘M-I-Z. Yo, Johnny Drip Drip’. And then it’s just kind of taken on a life of its own. People are dry, and they’re ready to get wet.”

On wrestling Randy Orton on last week’s RAW: “I thought Monday’s episode of Raw was one of the strongest episodes of Raw that I’ve seen in a very long time. You nailed it. Like Ricochet beats AJ (Styles), John Morrison beats Randy Orton, and Riddle beats Drew (McIntyre). Nobody saw any of those coming. I think that sometimes is what wrestling needs is a little bit more unpredictability, a little more uncertainty. For me, there’s the known and the unknown, and in between are the doors, which by the way, is why The Doors named their group The Doors. Support my namesake, Jim Morrison. But when you’re in the unknown, it’s more interesting because anything can happen. If you always know, AJ is going to beat Ricochet. If you know that going in, then suddenly, instead of like, ‘I want to see what’s going to happen’. You’re like, ‘Okay, let’s see how AJ beats Ricochet’. It’s more of a passive viewing experience, and that’s why I think this week was so cool. For me, I mean, Randy, someone that I’ve known for 19 years and always consider him a friend. We were talking, and I think that’s the first time that we’ve wrestled. We’ve been in the rings together plenty, but we’ve usually been on the same side. It was cool being in the ring with him. It was great having that match with him. His pacing is next level, and the way he thinks about everything is all very methodical, all about the story, all about conveying emotion through your face, and that can be understood by the people watching, which is really what it’s all about. The whole point of entertainment is to make someone feel something good, bad, excited, interested, and curious. So for all those reasons, it felt like I came away with a lot of ideas and excitement about the future after that match. ”

On getting to show what he can do at Money in the Bank: “I hope so. A lot of fans thought that they were going to see what they saw on Impact, Lucha Underground, and all the places that I was at. That’s what I thought too, and that’s what I’ve been wanting to do since I’ve been back. It feels like I’m in a unique position right now to showcase everything I’m capable of, not just physically in the ring, but promo-wise, charisma-wise. I feel like I pitch an idea every week. Some of them are dumb; some aren’t. I laughed a lot about dipsticks because I loved that idea. I think ‘Hurricane’ (Helms) sent me a tweet that said WWE just trademarked ‘drip drip stick’. They want to do crypto drip. I pitched that for two months. That fits so many things. With everything that is going on right now, I am very optimistic and hopeful that I’ll get the chance to show what I can do. It’s a strange thing to think that everyone is best at something, right? It’s really fulfilling and enjoying to do the thing that you’re best at, to your best capability. For me, that’s wrestling. It always has been. I feel like I’m better now than I’ve ever been. I haven’t really had the chance on my own to do what I see in my head is possible. This feels like that chance.”
