Former WWE Star Makes AEW Debut As The “Joker” In Owen Hart Foundation Tournament

On tonight's AEW Dynamite, former WWE star John Morrison made his debut with the company as the 'joker' in the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament Quarterfinals. Sticking with his tendency to create a fitting last name for the company he's performing with, John changed his name to 'Johnny Elite' for the debut.


John Morrison re-signed with WWE in 2019 following an eight-year absence. He was paired with the Miz during that time, and the duo faced Bad Bunny and Damian Priest in a top match at WrestleMania 37 in 2021.

On April 30, 2022, John Morrison returned to AAA for the first time since November 2017 at TripleMania XXX: Monterrey. Morrison pinned the AAA Cruiserweight Champion that night, which led to commentary hinting at a potential match with Laredo Kid for the title. Neither man is currently scheduled for a match at TripleMania XXX: Tijuana in June.

He also competed at Josh Barnett's Bloodsport 8 in April, picking up a victory over Simon Gotch.
