Sports Illustrated broke the news on Monday that former WWE Superstar John Morrison is coming to MLW: Never Say Never. This is the ‘big name former WWE Superstar’ in talks with MLW that we reported here exclusively last week.
The backstory for the match is that Strickland and Sami Callihan were attacked at MLW: One Shot out by hooded assailants,later revealed to be Darby Allin and Jimmy Havoc. Strickland reached out to Morrison to help get revenge.
Morrison told SI, “I’m preparing for this match the same way I prepared for John Cena and Randy Orton, or the same I would prepare to wrestle Kenny Omega or Tetsuya Naito. I’ve got all this experience and I’ve wrestled for all the major companies in the world, but the way that Strick, Havoc, and Allin think about wrestling is new to me and I’m ready for that challenge.”
