John Morrison recently appeared on the Kevin Gill Show to promote Lucha Underground. Here are the highlights.
On wrestling having an offseason: “There’s no other entertainment show that doesn’t have an offseason. There’s no other professional sport that doesn’t have an offseason. Part of the good thing about an offseason is it gives the performers time to reflect on what they did for the season. It gives the people behind the scenes time to reflect. It gives the writers time to write. And it makes it, so there’s no loose ends.”
On Lucha Underground: “Any pro wrestler will say the more promotions that have successful TV shows, the better. The more places to work as a pro wrestler, the better. Ultimately pro wrestling really comes down to what transpires between pro wrestlers and the fans. And the more opportunities, the more canvases, the more outlets, the better.”
On Rey Mysterio being in Lucha Underground: “I can’t say enough good things about Rey. He’s somebody that’s possibly the most popular Luchador of all time. When you’re in Mexico with Rey Mysterio, it’s like walking around in England with The Beatles. Everybody knows who Rey Mysterio is.”
On Roman Reigns: “I did this interview. And I put him over like he’s a really nice guy and a buddy of mine. They were like how would you like to wrestle him? And I kind of said off the cuff, a little jokingly and a little seriously I’d love to wrestle him in ten years after he’s learned to work. Did I mean that? I just made the comment to bust his balls a little bit”.
