A familiar name will be returning to WWE soon

Former WWE Intercontinental Champion John Morrison has signed a new contract to return to the promotion, according to PWinsider.

John Morrison effectively started his wrestling career in WWE when he was chosen as a competitor for Tough Enough III in 2002 and he became the co-winner of the show.

He spent some time in development after the win and Morrison, along with Joey Mercury and Melina made his main roster debut with a tag team championship win over Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero in April 2005.

After his debut, John went on to have a lengthy and successful run with WWE. Before his release from the company in November 2011, he had won over half a dozen championships in the promotion.

After his release from WWE, John Morrison started competing in the independent circuit. He has wrestled for a number of well-known promotions since his departure from WWE, including Lucha Underground, AAA and just recently Impact Wrestling.

There is no word yet on what is the length of Morrison’s new contract but in the current competitive environment, it’s not hard to imagine that the company has offered him a long term deal.

Now it would be interesting to see when the former Champion makes his return to the company and if he makes a surprise appearance during the SmackDown 20th anniversary show or the upcoming draft episodes.
