Quote Some people in WWE feel John Morrison doesn't know hot to generate real heat, thus explaining why he hasn't received a huge push in the company. A few have criticized him for acting "too goofy" with his character and going more for laughs than boos, reports ProWrestling.NET.

* I think this is a really poor way to stop him getting a push that he truely deserves.

* Yes I agree he probably goes for laughs, but he's not the first heel to go down that route and not be punished.

* At least he gets some reaction from the live crowd. There's many heels who don't get anything at all.

* He's more ability, mic skills, catch phrases etc than most. He deserves to be used better and I can't agree with this.

This is a ridiculous reason for not pushing him - i'd have much rather seen him in the scramble than Miz to be honest. If management do think he's too goofy though, instead of punishing him by not giving him a push, why don't they just have a word with him about his future promos and direct him to be a bit more serious/arrogant. I'm sure he'd take the advice on board.

If I were out to bury Triple H, I'd say this reeks of Triple H.

But instead, I'll just stick to saying this is one of the cases of management not having a clue half of what they're talking about.

Really, let me get this straight. You turn Santino into a complete joke and then make him run around with the Intercontinental title, then you hold back on pushing John Morrison basically because he's a cool heel? And if you're really so concerned about him being a cool heel, wouldn't that be the part where you do advise him to get a little more serious, or better yet, ride the wave of the cool heel until it's time to turn him face? Jeez…

…and this is how WWE prepares for the now-imminent stepdown of the Undertaker? As Kurt Angle used to say, "Give me a frickin' break!"

Morrison is arguably the most talented wrestler on the roster, but if creative are pissed that hes acting "goofy", why stick him with The Miz, who on Smackdown was the biggest retard ever? Why allow the two to present their own funny segment, 'The Dirt Sheet' if they didnt want the two pratting around? Morrison could get crowd heat if he actively seeked it, as he is a polished promo guy. Put him in a worthwhile feud against a popular babyface, such as Rey or Matt Hardy, and he'll draw heat. No one is going to boo him in useless matches against Cryme Time anyway.

And this Santino as IC champion isn't goofy? Morrison should be ecw or world heavyweight champion, not just sitting back as a joke with the miz. He is a talented superstar so give him a push and let him be wwe!

stupid. i never even liked morrison on smackdown, then when he was moved to raw, i didn't like him but i saw how good he was in his fued with jeff hardy, then when he moved to ecw, i started really liking him and thought, why is he only being allowed to be as good as he is now? he is one of the best in ecw, no doubt and he is way better then the miz, no matter how much miz has improved in the ring. i like his goofy personality, because not much other people have it, other then santino, but santino is so goofy and dumb, it's not the same thing. i was laughing on ecw when him and miz came down to the ring, punk and that was in the ring looking at him and he goes "what? i have great abbs! yeah." LOL i hope they have changed thier mind though now, with morrison being the one getting the pin on punk.Clap
Qouth the draven, nevermore.

this may be another one of those bullshit stories by the Wrestler Observer to get people talking.  If McMahon was already thinking Morrison was acting too goofy, I don't really think he'd let him and Miz do that segment they did on RAW last week with Cryme Tyme cause really, that was a goofy but funny segment.  Morrison made Cryme Tyme look like idiots.  He seemed more "street" than they did.  I was laughing my ass off during that segment. 

Something that has hurt Morrison is his name being tied into that Signature Pharmacy thing.  I've noticed they haven't pushed him near as much since that happened.  He's won the tag titles with Miz but that's about it.

I also dont think the lack of push is because of his alleged 'goofyness', but may have something to do with the help he had to get "those great abs" last summer.
