Morrison (the name he was interviewed under) was recently interviewed by WSVN TV (out of Miami, Florida) on what’s going on with his wrestling career, including the upcoming fourth season of “Lucha Underground”, who he’d like to see wrestle in WWE, the Miz’s success and more. Here are some highlights, with transcription courtesy of Wrestlinginc.com:
On Ricochet Joining WWE
“It’s bittersweet to see him go. I wrestled Puma/Ricochet/Trevor all over the world by all these different names. He’s one of the best in the business right now and I’m really excited to see what happens for him at WWE and see him on NXT. It’s sad to see him go but when he was a kid he grew up watching WWF and I think it’s something he had to do for himself. He had to get there and see what it was like for himself. I think he’s going to kick ass there… Everyone’s going to miss Puma. I actually teared up on that last episode when he walked away. It was emotional man.”
On Wrestling Under So Many Names
“I don’t own any of these names. I don’t own Johnny World, Johnny Mundo, John Morrison, Johnny Nitro, Johnny Blaze or Johnny Impact. None of it. If I had my career to do over again, I think I would wrestle under my real name John Hennigan because if there was some sort of brand test associated with professional wrestling I would hardcore fail that test because I have so many names it’s confusing to me even. I don’t know how to introduce myself to people on the phone depending on who I’m talking to.”
And on Season 4 of “Lucha Underground”
“This is going to be an insane schedule. They’re going to try to get Season 4 done in 5 weeks. The entire season. I’m not even sure how it’s going to be scheduled, that has yet to be completely announced but I think we are going to be taping 3 days a week and so we’re probably going to be knocking out 6 episodes a week.”

Opinion: For someone who has been around as long as Morrison has, he still feels like a star. He looks like one, carries himself like one and certainly wrestles like one. It wouldn’t shock me to see him back in the WWE at some point in the future, at least for one last run. After his last few years, he’s more than earned it.
