John Morrison, who will be a free agent effective next month, was in negotiations with Sal Corrente to appear at his upcoming WrestleReunion event, which takes place January 27-29 in Los Angeles, California. However, the deal fell through.
Corrente remarked the following on the WrestleReunion website regarding the final spot for their VIP lineup at the annual convention:
“One of the final spots we left open was for somebody that was “just off TV” to try and reach some younger audiences that may not be familiar with the “classics”. We really thought it would be a guy ….cough… john morrison..cough.. but it turned out to be a Diva. The last spot is being held for a Japanese star.”
Morrison’s existing contract with WWE expires at the end of November and it is not known whether he has re-signed. He was pulled from advertised for WWE’s upcoming tour of Japan, which takes place November 30 and December 1, 2011 in Yokohama. His last announced appearance takes place at the November 28, 2011 Raw SuperShow in Columbia, South Carolina.
