John Fuckin Morrison



I liked him best ten years ago as an earnest and reasonably modest hunk on Tough Enough, Season 3, but I could never bring myself to totally write him off as John Morrison, a larger-than-life caricature of rock-star glam on WWE. And if major cable-TV sports entertainment shies away from wrestling (you may recall that last spring Vince McMahon officially removed the word "wrestling" from WWE), Morrison, 6', 215#, found a workable second-best in parkour, the French art and science of moving rapidly, gracefully, and often astoundingly through, around, over, under, and in between obstacles. Known by many names over the last decade (Johnny Blaze/Nitro/Onyx/Spade/Superstar),  Morrison exited WWE last month, but he is scheduled to headline the newly branded World Wrestling Fan Xperience this coming Saturday in Manila (lucky Bruno at Beefcakes of Wrestling!), reportedly under his birth name, John Hennigan, the name we first knew him by, in 2002.

  1. He's still using the name John Morrison...at least for the WWFX show that's going to be held here in Manila this weekend. I could kick myself because Morrison is doing a meet-and-greet this Friday evening for the fans at a nearby mall and I have voice acting work scheduled that day. Rats! Oh well, I'll see him in action on Saturday instead.
