After the injury reported by MVP to Raw, another star of the red show seems to have run into physical problems. This time it was John Morrison's turn who, in the episode on Monday night, suffered a disastrous fall outside the ring, injuring his knee.
The former couple champion was engaged in a match against Matt Riddle and due to a botch on the spinning dive, his knee was trapped between the ropes. To ascertain his conditions, the referee promptly arrived and the injury was incorporated, in a storyline key, into the match.
Riddle then won the match by pinfall, using his finisher.
The latest news on John Morrison
John Morrison then appeared again during the show together with the current WWE Champion The Miz, showing himself to be somewhat limping and worrying fans on social networks.
At the moment there are no updates on the extent of the injury reported, but Morrison himself referred to the incident on Instagram, joking about the fall. Dave Meltzer has speculated that the wrestler may require some time in the pits to operate, but the official confirmation is awaited.
We just have to wait and see how all of this will affect the plans for him at this year's WrestleMania, scheduled for April 10th and 11th. John Morrison decided to return to WWE at the age of 41 after a great stint in Lucha Underground and Impact Wrestling.
He turned down AEW because Vince McMahon, he said about him, put a very tempting offer on the table. Recently, moreover, his partner in real life, Taya Valkyrie, has also signed a contract with WWE and will soon debut at NXT, going to further strengthen the women's division.
The two, therefore, will have the opportunity to share the same roof also from a professional point of view. Finally, John Morrison explained in several interviews how his goals in the ring compared to the past have now changed and now his aim is to have the WrestleMania main event.
As noted by Meltzer, Morrison continued to work the match at a highly successful level despite the injury, and while many details weren't disclosed, the Superstar doesn't seem to be badly hurt. Meltzer would add: "It didn't appear to be as bad a deal as MVP, who was on a crutch from a leg injury the week before, because he was able to get around and continued working the match at a high level.
But when he came out later, he wasn't moving well." Morrison will have an important role to play on the road to WrestleMania 37 as he accompanies his partner and new WWE Champion, The Miz. The A-Lister will defend the WWE Championship against Bobby Lashley on the next RAW episode, and the booking direction point towards a potential title change.
