Lucha Underground star and former WWE Superstar John Morrison A.K.A. Johnny Mundo recently shared his thoughts on Randy Orton’s comments about the in-ring style of the independent wrestling scene:

“I read his tweet and laughed at it,” Morrison said. “It’s classic Randy. Ultimately, as far as Randy goes and his career, he’s clearly one of the most successful wrestlers of all time. He’s never been a guy that’s done dives because he’s never had to and it’s his prerogative too. That’s not the style of wrestling that he wanted to do. I think there are instances where people take it too far but ultimately in my opinion, wrestling is for the people and if everyone keeps that in mind, what’s happening in the ring and the energy that’s being exchanged between the performers in the ring and the fans and capturing that on TV as your televised wrestling but because wrestling is for the people, everything is subjective and just opinions.

“There’s going to be your Randy Orton, your Vader, your Jim Cornette, your Will Ospreay, your Richochet and all those people have different fortes and different strong suits and tell different stories. I feel like I like to blend all that stuff, like grounded storytelling but also I liked watching guys like Rey Mysterio and Rob Van Dam in ECW and they were doing all kinds of crazy stuff. I was jumping off the couch when I was watching those guys, so to me there’s a place for everything. Ultimately, it’s not even really up to me or any of the wrestlers. It should be up to the fans to cheer for what they like.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
