Back in September, it was reported that John Morrison was returning to WWE. Tonight on WWE Backstage, Ryan Satin confirmed that Morrison has indeed signed a contract with the company.
Morrison's initial WWE run was nothing short of impressive. He had a short stint on SmackDown Live as a part of M.N.M., alongside Joey Mercury and Melina. Morrison won the vacant ECW title by defeating CM Punk at Vengeance: Night of Champions 2007. He later teamed up with The Miz and went on to become a singles competitor on SmackDown after the duo split up. Morrison split with WWE in late 2011.
Now that Morrison is back in WWE, we will possibly get to see a string of never-before-seen matches with Morrison taking on the absolute best WWE has to offer. Let's take a look at 5 feuds for Morrison upon his return.

Morrison couldn't have come back at a better time, as former World Champion Rey Mysterio is currently an active WWE Superstar. Many fans won't be aware of the fact that when Morrison debuted on SmackDown as a part of M.N.M., the duo won the WWE Tag Team Championship from Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero in their debut match.
After his WWE exit, Morrison met Mysterio in a tournament at a 5 Star Wrestling event, in a winning effort. Before this outing, he defeated Mysterio to win his 3rd Intercontinental title on SmackDown. This history could be played out in a potential feud between the two. Morrison and Mysterio's wrestling styles mesh incredibly well, resulting in must-see high-flying bouts.
It's not known whether Morrison will directly make his way to the main roster or go through NXT first. A direct move to Monday Night RAW will open up the possibility for a Morrison vs Mysterio match in the near future.
