Breaking: John Morrison Leaving WWE?
Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter
Following Monday’s RAW in which John Morrison was defeated by Christian in approximately a minute and subsequently assaulted by Dolph Ziggler, Christian and Jack Swagger, a man wrote to Melina on Twitter accusing her of killing his WWE career.
He wrote, “Will you stand trial for killing your bf’s career? #prayforJoMo.”
The former WWE Diva responded via private message, “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.”
John Morrison’s WWE contract is expiring soon, and some within the company are convinced that it will not be renewed. Company personnel has speculated that while Morrison has not upset management, he, like Drew McIntyre, is paying the price for his significant other’s actions. Not to mention, it’s said that WWE chairman Vince McMahon does not like Morrison on a personal level.

Former WWE Diva Maria Kanellis made similar allegations during last week’s RAW discussion show for AfterBuzzTV.com after co-host Lilian Garcia pondered why McIntyre and Morrison are not receiving greater pushes.
Maria said of 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.”
Maria then said of 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 it’s outside complications. I think that’s why.”
In other John Morrison news, Southern California Public Radio’s 89.3 FM KPCC did a drive today where if 900 people donated to their station by noon, Morrison would donate $10,000 of his own money. No word yet on how the challenge went. KPCC had this on their Facebook earlier: “Attention wrestling fans: WWE’s John Morrison is behind today’s challenge. If we get 900 members by noon, we’ll quit fundraising for the day and get a $10,000 check!”
