John Morrison recently did an interview with thenational.ae and here are the highlights… 

On what it’s like to be back in WWE eight years later: “Surreal. I never really meant to leave for as long as I did. I traveled all over the world for a bunch of different companies but you can’t compare wrestling for WWE to wrestling for any other place. It is the biggest platform for wrestling in the world. Every detail is done to perfection.” 

On what he learned while he was away from WWE: “The first time I was with WWE I feel like I was still growing up. It’s crazy that, while you are with WWE, it’s like an express train – you just fly through life leaving a great legacy and creating content that is seen all over the world. It does mean you can miss a lot of things about life that people in other jobs don’t miss, like family occasions.” 

On the perspective his time away gave him: “It can sometimes be difficult to be introspective about who you are as a person when you are so focused on who you are as a performer. It was so important to unlock who I was as a person, because those things should go hand in hand. While I was away I realised I really enjoy having creative autonomy and storytelling, and it was great to realise that because that’s what professional wrestling is. The main thing is that I really feel now that I know what I want and what’s important.” 

On what he hopes to accomplish in and out of the ring: “If you asked me that question 10 years ago the answer would be to main-event WrestleMania and that is still the answer, but because there are a lot of things about wrestling you can’t control it is really now about being the best version of myself. Keeping up physically and unlocking new movement patternsis something I’m always interested in, different combinations of movements. Outside of the ring it is about realizing the people closest to me are the most important.”
