Former WWE Star Says John Morrison Should Apologize To Trish Stratus

Former WWE star Sean “X-Pac” Waltman feels John Morrison should apologize for his unprofessional conduct towards Trish Stratus at WrestleMania XXVII.

“I think he should be ashamed,” Waltman wrote on Twitter. “I think he owes Trish a public apology, and deserves to be in doghouse. Total bullshit.”

He continued, “I lost a lot of respect for Morrison over that. He may not care, but he f’n should.”

The former WWE Women’s Champion stated during a radio interview two weeks ago that Morrison gave her the cold shoulder during their post-match celebration. She also said that he rejected her suggestions during pre-match planning.

Company sources indicate that he and/or his girlfriend Melina believe Stratus took the WrestleMania spot away from the Diva regular, hence Morrison’s behavior towards her.

Those on Morrison’s side say as he was laying out the match with Stratus, she was insisting that her trademark spots be featured, which led to his resentment. The complaint was that Stratus wanted to be the “star” of the match when its intention was for Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi to garner mainstream attention for WWE. Also, the match was also under extreme time constraints and Morrison should have been treated as a rising star as opposed to “just another guy.”

While Stratus is generally regarded well behind the scenes, she has had her share of detractors over the years. She was not popular during her early years in the promotion and there have been complaints of her being arrogant, self-centered and phony. Former WWE announcer Kevin Kelly, who worked with Stratus from 2000 to 2003, was particularly negative towards her during a 2007 “shoot” interview and alleged that she engaged in a sexual relationship with Vince McMahon. Stratus also received a lot of heat from WWE officials for refusing to participate in the 25-Diva Battle Royal at WrestleMania XXV. She reportedly declined working the match because she was not guaranteed she would win. More recently, Stratus drew the ire of numerous Divas as they believe she “took their spots” at WrestleMania XXVII.

  • U ain’t awesome

    Damn is trish being passed around that much that people actually feel that shes needs an apology?

  • sennit

    Honestly critics are being too hard on Morrison, not everyone in the business has to be one big happy family. And in all reality, nobody cares what X Pac thinks.

  • dont disrespect X Pac…best European Champ ever…behind Shane Mcmahon

  • Satan

    Blah Blah Blah this story has already been told Morrison gave her a cold shoulder get over it Xpac you’re irrelevant Morrison doesn’t give a shit what you think

  • Hunter

    @ Wrestlingoutcast- can’t agree more RE Laycool. Refreshing heel faction for the divas division. Shame it looks like they are separating them.


    Yah do u blame Trish for not wanting to be in a Divas Battle Royal just to watch Santino win. Stupidest idea ever.

  • What ?

    I mean who really cares what X fuck has to say. And the JOe moe dude fuck him too. Who gives a rats ass what either say or do. Really.
    The girls are only around for eye candy and well possible some other things you know as the net reported. I mean trish slept with vince according to Kevin Kelley. Now that about as solid as the shit I took the morning. A huge load of crap!

  • Valo487

    If Trish really did refuse to be in the diva battle royal because they wouldn’t guarantee she would win, then she got a taste of her own medicine.

  • John

    X-Pac thinks Morrison’s behavior was unprofessional? Says the guy who would sh*t in other people’s food and bags as a joke and then hide behind his more over and more talented friends. Waltman’s opinion really doesn’t mean anything in the wrestling world anymore. It never would have if it weren’t for the company he kept.

  • Wrestling Out Cast

    Saintsman is an idiot and he needs to apologies for his Comments towards LayCool. I LOVE Layla and Michelle McCool. They are my favorite female tag team next to Hollywood and Vine. (Showing my age)
    They talk the most Trash and LOOK the BEST and they have some NICE moves in the ring.
    Does any one even care about Xpac? He needs to take his washed up self back to AAA or Mexico or where ever it was that he found himself and just stay there.

    Morrison owes no one an apology. Trish, Morrison, Dolph and LayCool where all in the same match at the same time. They are all professionals. They each know what it takes to make an impact in any match no matter WHO is being pushed or how much of a time limit they have.

  • CC

    And yet another “reliable” source weighs in on the Morrison/Melina story. When someone with some credibility has something to say about it, then I will listen. So far the people who have weighed in on this are people I wouldnt want on my side.

  • Saintsman

    All it makes me see is that bot are horrible people. two wrongs don’t make a right. an d personally. i never liked Trish, she was the most boring Diva of all time… well, next to Sable. Also overpushed. Trish is overrated. Divas who play the Heel role were vastly overlooked and underrrated. Victoria, Molly, Jazz, Ivory were all better than Trish Stratus. Lita was very sloppy but much more fun to watch. Trish’s matches are like watching paint dry. Though i don’t like Morrison, he would mave been more entertaining for Mania than Trish. heck, anyone would have been.

  • Hunter

    The writers fault jomo was just another guy- no trish.

  • Devil_Rising

    Nice. So NOW all the sudden the “reports” actually make Trish look a bit more human, instead of making Morrison look like such an AWFUL, AWFUL meanie. Very interesting, eh?

  • J-J

    X Pac feels that JoMO should apologise to Trish due to his behaviour? Has Pac (& the rest of the Kliq) apologised to Sunny for SHITTING in her bag all those years ago? Who gives a fuck what Pac thinks?

  • shawn

    @blah …were ya?

  • blah

    So little ol’ Trish isn’t so innocent afterall.she’s got a little bit of diva attitude, huh.
    Lets harp on that now guys??

    I was just watching ‘Mania 9 ( the worst one ever….Backlund vs. Razor Ramon need I say more) Macho & Heenan had me cracking up

  • Saintsman

    jimbo, you got a good eye for talent. I agree, bu WWE doesn’t want to push woman as “talented”. So instead we get a load of that Lay-Cool crap or we get something else lame that we will just leave the tv to get somethin to eat, go to the restroom, ect…

  • Jimbo

    “Took their spots at WM27”

    Well, if almost all the divas didn’t suck, WWE wouldn’t feel the need to contact people like Trish. Although it is beyond stupid that Natalya or Beth Phoenix, easily the best performers, were left off the card.

  • GreasyRabbit75

    Like Morrison should be giving a rat’s ass what X-pac thinks…
