Hello Revolutionaries, RiZE here with an interesting set of news. It’s no secret that I am the biggest John Morrison mark on this planet. As of late, the frequency of stories revolving around Morrison’s impending WWE departure have gotten to a point where I don’t blame Morrison for exiting the WWE. Since his return, Morrison has become the WWE’s most noteworthy jobber, losing squash matches to the likes of Alberto Del Rio, Mark Henry, and Christian in less than five minutes.
The reason for Morrison’s relentless burial is reportedly his relationship with former WWE Diva, Melina.
For some time now, rumors of Melina’s infidelity and promiscuous behavior have caused fans and Vince McMahon to view Morrison in a negative live. Morrison refused to confront Dave Batista after he had a sexual relationship with Melina and this caused McMahon to lose respect for Morrison as a man. Yeah, the infamous Vince McMahon mentality strikes again.
The WrestleMania 27 fiasco with Melina/Trish Stratus followed by Melina attending a RAW episode a few days after her release from the company reportedly put backstage heat on JoMo. Morrison, who had just returned from a neck injury, was subject to a loss in every match he competed in.
With the exception of three matches, John Morrison has lost every single match he has partaken in since his return. This isn’t just live television, this is house shows included.
While most tend to blame WM 27 and Morrison’s “attitude”, a report published by F4WOnline.com, states “It’s believed that John Morrison will be leaving WWE soon. It’s said that he has done nothing wrong or caused trouble for officials but there’s speculation that like Drew McIntyre, Morrison is paying the price for who he was dating – former WWE Diva Melina”
On AfterBuzz, Maria Kanellis and Lilian Garcia spoke highly of Drew McIntyre and John Morrison before questioning why both aren’t getting pushed.
Here’s what Maria had to say about McIntyre:
“I have a feeling he’s paid for someone else’s sins, problems, because Drew’s really good. I’d love to see him do more stuff, but it’s unfortunate that that happens.”
In case you’re unaware of what Maria’s referring to, McIntyre and his then wife, Taryn “Tiffany” Terell, got into a confrontation in Los Angeles last year shortly before Summerslam. It was reported that Terell was physical with McIntyre and was arrested for domestic violence. Tiffany was released by the WWE a few weeks later while McIntyre has been reduced to jobbing since the WWE Draft.
A few moments later, Maria said this about Morrison:
“I think it’s a lot of complications of outside stuff. I think that a lot of times they go with who’s going to be there, who’s always going to be there, who’s going to be the easiest. He’s very easy and I love him to pieces, but I think its outside complications. I think that’s why.”
Before I could hand out my “I told you so” to those who’ve defended Melina, another report was published by WrestleNewz.com.
This time, it was Melina responding to a comment made by some guy on twitter. The individual said “Will you stand trial for killing your bf’s career” #PrayForJoMo.”
The individual sent this to Melina after Morrison was buried by Christian in a short match and was subsequently attacked by Cody Rhodes, Jack Swagger, and Dolph Ziggler.
Melina responded via direct message and had this to say:
“The WWE did it. I never did anything but stand by him through thick and thin. We should all be so lucky as to have someone like that in our lives.”
“John worked his ass off and did EVERYTHING he was told. The blame shouldn’t be put on me. Blame the WWE”
I’m a little half and half on this situation. For one, I don’t think talented superstars like McIntyre and Morrison should be blamed for the actions of their significant other. Simply put, we can blame the WWE for this as they’re the ones administering the burials. On the other hand, I do feel as if Melina has contributed greatly to the downfall of Morrison and the backstage opinion of him.
In the end, it’s sad that these guys are in their position they’re in because of this.
I stand behind Morrison’s decision to leave and McIntyre should consider doing so too as he hasn’t won a match in ages.
I wonder if McMahon would forgive them if they were bodybuilder like and equipped with an unlimited supply of baby oil.
Come on, you know it’s true.
