Former WWE Superstar John Morrison recently had an interview with ESPN where he talked about his life after WWE and more. Below are some of the highlights from his interview:
Talking about his life afterward leaving the company, he said that throughout this journey he has taken the path which he is most passionate about and it has been his guiding force:
“I thought things were gonna go much better, much faster [when I left WWE]. I worked on Boone: The Bounty Hunter for five years. I tried to find money for it. I couldn’t. I ended up selling my house to finance it personally. Lucha didn’t start until 2014. Impact, I just started with. I feel like I’ve been busting my ass since I left WWE to create opportunities. There are some things I did that I’m proud of that didn’t take off. I’ve tried to keep in mind throughout this whole journey, instead of taking the path of least resistance, take the path that I’m most passionate about. That’s been my guiding force.”
John also talked about his fiancée, Taya and praised her for being helpful in juggling the various responsibilities he has been handing:
“Taya’s got my back. I can’t begin to tell you how helpful she is with the juggling of all the responsibilities. There’s a lot on my plate, but the cool thing is everything that I’m doing I’m really into. I love Lucha Underground. I love Impact. I love wrestling every weekend all over the world. I love promoting ‘Boone: The Bounty Hunter.’ I truly believe in all these things. Maybe most of all, my wedding with Taya. It feels like I don’t have a lot of free time these days, but the time that I spend is well-used.”
Apart from this, John Morrison also talked about Ricochet and said that he is one of the most talented people in the history of wrestling.
