John Morrison not planning WWE return -- or TNA debut -- anytime soon

via www.wrestlingvalley.org

Here's a question I'm sure you've asked yourself today: Hey, I wonder what John Morrison is going to do now that he's no longer with WWE?

Question asked, question answered:

"I've been getting tons of questions about what the hell is going on with me. TNA? Japan? Am I going back to WWE? Well, I've come to a point in my career where I feel like taking time off now to heal and recharge will add years to my career down the line. You can't keep doing the same thing and expect a different result, so what I'm planning to do is take everything I've learned over my career as a pro wrestler -- about pro wrestling, strength training, and martial arts -- and put it all to use right now to start training so that when I'm ready, I'll be able to come back better than ever."

We've joked about Morrison quite a bit here on Cageside Seats but he really has been needing to get away from the business to heal up properly. His neck injuries got to a point that he needed surgery but instead of sitting out until he was 100-percent like he should have, Morrison decided to come back early -- which WWE allowed for reasons that are still unclear -- and he didn't even alter his daredevil style.

Boy, that Wellness Policy sure is effective.

Morrison had a good reason to want to come back sooner than he should have, seeing as he was in the midst of the biggest singles push of his career before getting hurt. Coming back early didn't equal the continuation of that push, though. In fact, after a short program with R-Truth, his contract status came into question and he was booked to lose nearly every match on Raw with the occasional win and/or non-loss loss to somewhat protect him should he decide to come back.

But now we know, or at least he's saying, Morrison has no plans to come back anytime soon. When John Laurinaitis was saying the two sides decision not to renew his contract was a mutually beneficial decision, he wasn't lying.

Heal up and get better, Morrison, so you can come back and piss off the smarks who can't take you seriously because of your inability to create credible offense. Video of his announcement after the jump.
