John Morrison Bio
As his theme music reminds us, John Morrison “ain’t no make believe.” However, his lightning-fast offense and high-risk aerial expertise often made the WWE Universe wonder if their eyes were playing tricks on them every time he entered the ring.
Hailing from sunny Los Angeles, The Guru of Greatness exuded Hollywood flash, from his colorful entrances to his attention-grabbing ring attire. But there was more to Morrison than his unique fashion sense and penchant for pyrotechnics.
Schooled in the French discipline of parkour, which emphasizes freedom of movement, Morrison succeeded in just about any environment imaginable, performing athletic feats previously unseen in WWE. His rigorous training regimen and incredible agility earned this exciting Superstar a wholly appropriate nickname: The Prince of Parkour.
