Quote ECW Champioin John Morrison was interviewed by Live Audio Wrestling, here are the highlights:

- Morrison said going from Johnny Nitro to John Morrison was a big change, but it wasn’t difficult for him to pull off. He thinks John Morrison is more like himself.

- He said the Morrison name was his idea, and said he had input into the new character.

- Morrison said he was a big fan of the Doors, and he cuts his own promos.

- He said he has written poems that he hopes gets published on WWE’s web site.

- He said Chris Benoit was an amazing person, and doesn’t know what happened. Morrison said he enjoyed working with him. He said the Benoit topic is hard to talk about.

- He said he doesn’t think about the fact that Benoit was supposed to win the ECW title, the title he ending up winning. "It’s a weird feeling," said Morrison.

- When asked about Congress getting involved in wrestling, he said Vince McMahon is a genius, and understands why he is defensive of his company.

- Morrison said WWE’s wellness program is comprehensive. He said they recently underwent cardio testing, which he said is a pain, but now knows his heart is in his good condition.

- He said WWE has opened up an office in Chyna.

He sounds a top bloke and really passionate for wrestling. The Benoit situation was obviously going to affect him and he probably feels bad that he's profited from a death, but he will make this run in memory to him. It nice he's had so much say in his character and he's done a good job ideas wise for it. Like he said Morrison is more him than Nitro. I think his poems would be best off saved for maybe "concert" style segments like The Rock did a few years ago. That would be good for heat.

That would be a very weird feeling knowing that the title you won,was meant for someone else that died.

No, no, to be a woman you have to be a human being, and she doesn't qualify.

Quote WWE's John Morrison was interviewed this week by Augusta.com and revealed that pro wrestling was not his first career choice. Morrison actually studied film and geology at the University of California. Morrison said, "I thought about filmmaking, about treasure hunting. But then I saw Tough Enough on MTV and thought that was something I could do. It was everything I wanted to do. It was physical. It was storytelling. It was all those things I was interested in."

* He talks about his wrestling ability like a true pro who really wants to improve and become a big star.

* He's got the swagger to be a film maker and I could see him wanting to go back to that line of work at some point.

* He sounds proper confident when talking about he thought Tough Enough was "something I could do" haha.

* You can tell with his wrestling character that he's into the acting side and being creative.
