5 Feuds for John Morrison upon his WWE return
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.

#5 Rey Mysterio
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.
