John Morrison was one of the most exciting in-ring talents during his days with the WWE from 2004-2011.

The high-flyer has continued to impress since his departure from the biggest wrestling company in the world and he is now one of the pillars of Lucha Underground.

The Mexican-style promotion that is produced in Los Angeles with movie-quality cutscenes, has grown tremendously since it's inception in 2014 and is possibly looking at its fourth season in the near future.

Performing alongside the likes of Riccochet (Prince Puma) and WWE legend Rey Mysterio Jr, Morrison finds himself in some elite company in his current promotion.

However, back in the WWE, he was a multiple tag team champion alongside The Miz, the man who tore into Daniel Bryan during an episode of Talking Smack recently when the SmackDown general manager suggested his in-ring style was too "safe".

Morrison recently spoke to SI.com and had some words of support for the Intercontinental champion, The Miz.

“The Miz has his own style and his own technique, and he is very effective,” said Jonny Mundo, as he is known in Lucha Underground. “How do you rate his wrestling? Is he an in-ring technician? Does he work similar to the way Bret Hart worked? No, he doesn’t.

"But, out of all the thousands of wrestlers, people want to talk about The Miz, which means people are thinking about him, especially after that promo with Daniel Bryan – which was one of the best promos of Miz’s career. The whole wrestling world took notice, and if you equate wrestling to storytelling, it’s clear The Miz can go.”

It's easy to see Morrison's point, but Bryan was talking about from a pure, technical standpoint. The Miz has never been the most exciting in-ring competitor, but, he has always flourished as a heel on the microphone and has remained entertaining for over a decade.
