Ever since John Morrison returned to the WWE fans often wandered why didn’t he go to AEW. Well we finally got that answer. Morrison revealed there was an opportunity for him to go to AEW.
Morrison recently spoke to Chris Van Vliet on his show about his time spent as a free agent. He said he spoke to both AEW and WWE. He also said that Vince McMahon and himself had a “really good conversation” and it came down to WWE making him an offer that AEW could not match.
Morrison would continue by saying,
“So when season four of Lucha ended, they have some stuff on their contracts where there’s a tail, and the tail doesn’t start until the episodes stop airing. So, I signed with Impact, and when everything was free and clear, I decided, ‘I’m a free agent again, completely free, no ties anywhere. I’m going to figure out where do I want to go?’ So, I talked to WWE and I talked to AEW, and I had a really good conversation with Vince, and they made me a really nice offer, and I ended up taking it.”
