John Morrison Returns To AAA With Another New Name
Morrison returned to AAA for the first time since 2018
In what was a packed weekend for pro wrestling, AAA ran their Rey de Reyes 2022 event on Saturday February 19, a show which featured the return of John Morrison.
Now going by ‘John/Johnny Superstar’, the former WWE Intercontinental Champion challenged El Hijo del Vikingo for the AAA Mega Championship in a losing effort.
Johnny Superstar is now the 11th moniker of his career, following such names as Johnny IMPACT, Johnny Mundo, John Morrison, Johnny Blaze, and Johnny Nitro, amongst others.
Superstar’s match at Rey de Reyes was his first match since being released by WWE in 2021, with his last match a loss to Veer Mahaan on Main Event on November 15.
This was also Superstar’s first match in AAA since January 2018, with his last match in the company seeing him lose the AAA Mega Championship to Rey Wagner at AAA Guerra De Titanes 2018.
Johnny follows in the footsteps of his wife Taya Valkyrie, who returned to AAA in December 2021 at Triplemania Regia II.
