John Morrison On His Relationship With The Miz, Being Involved In Funny Storylines

WWE RAW Star John Morrison, who made his return to the WWE in 2020 after being away for 8 years, made an appearance on a recent episode of WWE's After The Bell Podcast with Corey Graves and discussed his relationship with The Miz and how they continued to stay friends even after he left the company.

John Morrison said:

“I’ll start by talking about The Miz in past tense.” “In the scheme of the wrestling business, there’s certain people who become really close friends, and there’s people who become friends and some you want to slap the potato chips off the table with. When I first met The Miz, I thought he was a real [expletive] just like everyone else. When we started tagging together, I didn’t get a real chance to talk to him, and after we had done just our first loop of live events together and were in a car talking together, I was like – when he’s just with you and you’re talking, he’s a really great guy. He’s loyal. He has the same dreams and hopes of everyone, and he’s in love with wrestling.”

“He’s kind of funny but he thinks everything I say is funny, which is a confidence booster. It turned out to evolve and become more fun than I thought. I was in his wedding, he was in my wedding, and we became more than just tag team partners and co-workers. We became real friends. When you’re working with somebody that you really enjoy the company of and you’re on the same wavelength and have chemistry on screen, it makes everything better. There’s a lot of tag teams out there, The Usos, The New Day. They’re not three guys who hate each other and just show up to work everyday. The New Day, you can tell, they’re best friends, and that’s kind of how I felt working with Miz.”

John Morrison then discussed how he and The Miz would usually come up with the funniest storylines.

John Morrison said:

“Usually between The Miz and I, I’m the one that comes up with really, really far out there things.” “Miz is like ‘John, that’s too dumb.’ When we pushed through Mandy Rose’s hair, I was originally wanting to do one of those Hollywood documentaries like ‘The Rise and Fall of Mandy’s hair.’ Clearly, like a 20 minute docu-drama about Mandy’s hair, the trials and tribulations. And it wouldn’t fit, so we just did a shorter version.”
