This discussion has been inspired by the general debate on the Undertaker streak thread about John Morrison's main event potential.

 

Does John Morrison have what it takes to be a main eventer in the WWE?

In my opinion, he does. He has the look, the mic skills, the wrestling abililty, the charisma, he has it all. He still needs to time to develop and perfect his character but in 5-10 years time, I can see him main eventing Wrestlemanias. I would love to see a Shelton Benjamin vs John Morrison match for the US title. It would be a fast paced, high flying and entertaining match between two of the most athletic and talented superstars currently in WWE.

10 years?! He wont even be in WWE in 10 years, I guarentee it. Who gets a 15 year run in WWE? Taker, HBK, HHH...thats about it. You get the odd person they hang on to and use for jobs because they have a name like Bob Holly, but its very rare. Morrison, after being there for 15 years to start main eventing in his late 30's?

 

I dont see it.

I said 5-10 years, I don't actually think it will take him 10 years to main event Wrestlemania but if it does, I don't think he has what it takes.

 

I honestly think if Morrison keeps his head down and works very, very hard, he could become one of the biggest stars in WWE. If Batista can do it, surely Morrison can! :lol

But Batista is massive, and morrison is tiny.

 

The only small guys who gets runs in the main event are ones that are veterans of the business, who's style far surpasses everyone elses. John Morrison certaintly doesn't come in that category, and he can't get in under entertainment merrits as his mic skills aren't even average.

 

So no, unless John Morrisons goes to another company he will never be a main eventer.

Voted NO because I just can't see anything in Morrison which say he can break into the main event on any other show then ECW which isn't really main eventing as the ECW title is about on apar with the US and IC title

 

I really like Morrison but there is nothing about him which screams WWE main eventer. In a different company maybe but not WWE, if you are small (by main event standards) you have to have something to make you noticed and Morrison doesn't have it.

 

Punk and Mysterio only got the belts because they sell merch by the bucket loads so WWE simply are capitalising on that, Morrison doesn't have that going for him. He has been a job boy who turned into a midcarder and thats about it

 

There is far more poeple who will become main eventers over Morrison, many of whom probably haven't even debuted yet, but they will be huge muscle men which is what Vince loves as main eventers

In this case, I must quote Dragons den...

 

"I'm sorry, I don't see anything in here I can invest in...it doesn't interest me, so for that reason...I'm out!"

 

Way out. :P

I voted no. He's just not big enough body wise. I think with his mic skills after wrestling he could become another JBL on colour commentary. He could take over for JR in a few years.

I couldnt care either way, Morrison does have talent, but I dont forsee him becoming a main event player, maybe intercontinental or US or tag, but not WWE or World Heavyweight.

Rudie he has already held the IC and Tag team belts and also he was ECW champion. The only titles he hasn't held are the US and WWE and WHC belts. I just don't see him having the top two.

That's the problem with WWE nowadays. They'd rather have a huge, talentless former bodybuilder like Batista in a Wrestlemania main event than a average sized, talented superstar like John Morrison. Would you rather see Batista vs Shawn Michaels or John Morrison vs Shawn Michaels?

I voted yes as I can't see any reason why he definitely won't be.

 

Certainly if you look at today's climate in wrestling, big guys don't draw.

 

Wrestling is fake and it's well documented, kayfabe is dead as they say so people only look at wrestling as show and nothing more..

 

So! With that being said, the whole 'big guy' thing doesn't draw a dime these days.

 

What draws is the fued and the characters..

 

That's why you have CM Punk getting more cheers than Batista or Cena and why Jericho is probably the 2008 MVP.

 

Morrison if given some work could probably work his way up in my opinion. I don't particularly like him, in fact I was disgusted when they put the ECW title on him instead of Punk but stranger things have happened.

 

He's going to need to start getting alot more over though, as at the moment nobody cares.

 

So I voted yes..as there's no option for 'could go either way'

Seriously, I cant believe how many votes for yes he is getting. You people voting yes really dont understand pro wrestling, specifically WWE and Vince McMahon.

 

Punk is world champion, but is he the face of the company? Dont be ridiculous, or course he isnt. John Cena is. Morrison might get a world title run like Punk is, but he wont headline WrestleMania in the show closing match and he will never be the face of the company, anybody who thinks otherwise is kidding themselves, really.

He's talented enough and has decent charisma but I feel that if he was ever going to be up there he'd have been on his way by now but it's like he's stuck in the same cycle on ECW. For him to get anywhere he'd need to be moved off ECW so he can be built more legitimately.

I don't see any reason why a guy like CM Punk can't main event Wrestlemania if he's over more than Batista, Cena etc..

 

HHH wasn't a popular choice back in 1999 but come 2000 he was the best heel and deserved to be in that spot.

Punk isnt more popular than Batista and doesnt get the reaction that Cena gets. He isnt on there level, not yet anyway, plus they have other things going for them that Punk will never have: huge physiques!

 

And Comparing Morrison to HHH is crazy, even in terms of a comparison of placement on the card. HHH was ALWAYS a Vince McMahon favourite, plus he is and was jakked to the max on steroids. On top of that, he worked the WWF/WWE brawling style in the main event. Morrison doesnt.

 

Morrison has nothing going for him that screams WWE main eventer, Punk doesnt either but he is getting a caretaker run and nothing more.
