As many of you may or may not have read the interweb is ablaze with rumors that WWE
pro wrestler sports entertainer John Morrison is finishing up his WWE contract and heading to TNA Impact Wrestling with Melina.
We rarely cover dirt sheet rumors as historically speaking they are not very accurate, for every dirt sheet rumor that comes to fruition there are literally dozens that never pan out. There are two types of dirt sheet rumors, those pulled out of thin air, and those planted by someone inside for gain. Of those pulled out of thin air, enough guesses are made that sometimes they work out, usually they don’t. Of those “leaked” by insiders, they sometimes have a grain of truth, they sometimes are very accurate, the later being the exception.
The John Morrison rumor is gaining a lot of traction. So much so that the dirt sheets are now issuing a counter rumor to cover their tracks. The latest counter rumor is Morrison has now decided to pursue other TV and movie gigs instead of TNA Wrestling.
Morrison himself said the following on Twitter yesterday, “I’ll post more about the future next week. Right now I’m planning on tearing the house down at RAW tomorrow in Columbia SC! #JoMoSapiens”
Not a lot of information in that post, but a ton of grey area that the dirt sheets can feed off of. Morrison could indeed be leaving WWE for TNA and have told someone as much. He also reportedly extended his contract 30 days last month with WWE and could have leaked this info for leverage on a longer term contract ala Matt Hardy the first time he left WWE. He may have in fact decided to pursue TV roles and his notice sprang this rumor, the truth is nobody but John Morrison and TNA would know for sure.
One thing is for sure, if and when we hear something official we will pass it along.
