According to a report from PWInsider, John Morrison – also known as Johnny Nitro, Johnny Impact, and Johnny Mundo – is set to return to WWE.
Perhaps the biggest star on the independent scene, Morrison has been a part of the WWE in the past but left to pursue other interests. As he did so, he took on more names than a Bray Wyatt character being repackaged for the umpteenth time. Only, those name changes were of his own choosing, often reflecting the promotion he was working with. He won the Lucha Underground Championship as Johnny Mundo, and the IMPACT World Championship as Johnny Impact.
Morrison also found some B-level fame with other projects, including acting in series such as GLOW and Shameless, as well as being a contestant on the reality show Survivor. Just a couple of months ago, Morrison decided not to return to Impact Wrestling and rumors started to swirl he might make a comeback in WWE.
WWE has yet to officially announce his return but one has to assume he’ll be pegged to show up on the season premiere of Raw or the debut of SmackDown on Fox. Each show will be looking for a way to pull out a few surprises and his return would certainly count.
