John Morrison just made his in-ring WWE return tonight against Big E of the New Day! Jordan Huie of the Overtimer here, and Friday Night SmackDown is in progress as I speak! As with most weeks, I’ll be here with you ‘til the end to give you the live recap and results from the show as they come!
Morrison and E’s match stems from the night the Shaman of Sexy made his return WWE TV. He allied himself with former tag partner the Miz, who has been having a rough time of things since his feud with the Fiend ended poorly for him. Unable to avenge his family, Miz let his anger get the better of him in attacking Kofi Kingston.
When Morrison appeared on MizTV shortly after, the two apologized but sounded quite insincere and couldn’t help but attack the audience in the process. The New Day interrupted and it became clear this would be the feud going forward, hence this match here tonight!
You can see an excerpt of my recap of this match below:
Springboard, E evades and Morrison lands on his feet, E nails a series of devastating Overhead Belly To Bellies! Claps along, crowd getting way into the New Day Rocks chant!
But Morrison with a kick to the gut, Moonlight Drive for a nearfall! Miz up on the apron to try and distract, a very blonde Kofi Kingston rips him off the apron and throws him into the steps! Morrison up top… has that “Eh, why not?” look, flips through the air right onto Kofi! Terrible heel, but lovely to see him do his thing anyway! Miz pulls Morrison out of the way as E wanted to go for his spear off the apron, Morrison catches him with a kick, up top for the Starship Pain and that’s that!
Winner: John Morrison
To the surprise of no one, Morrison got a win in his return match and looked good doing it.
