'''John Randall Hennigan''' (born October 3, 1979) is an American film major turned professional wrestler, better known by his ring name, '''John Morrison''' (though he has less frequently wrestled as Hennigan, Johnny Nitro and several variations there of, being '''Johnny Mundo''' in Wrestling/LuchaUnderground). After training in California's Supreme Pro Wrestling school, he tried out for WWE Tough Enough, being rejected for II but making the cast and winning III. So far he has had the most successful WWE career of any Tough Enough winner, ring wise.

* BlatantLies: "My name is ''not'' Johnny Nitro." OK, that much is true, if [[CaptainObvious a little obvious]]. "My name is ''John Morrison."'' Um, that's closer to reality, but still not quite right. "I was given that name at birth-" OK, gonna have to stop you there Mr. ''Hennigan,'' now you're just making shit up.


Added DiffLines:

** Completely averted on Wrestling/LuchaUnderground where ''everyone'' has to be willing to hit a girl because it's an intergender promotion. He had an extended feud with Sexy Star which culminated in a ''steel cage match.''

* ItWillNeverCatchOn: Morrison was rejected from season 2 of Tough Enough because Kevin Dunn didn't like his attitude. The fact that he came back to take part in ''and win'' season 3 before going on to have a successful run in the company is further proof that [[PointyHairedBoss Kevin Dunn has no goddamn idea what he's talking about]].

** Creeps up again in Wrestling/LuchaUnderground as his reason for [[FaceHeelTurn turning heel]]. Initially treated as a face despite being money hungry due to his honorable and fearless style, Johnny Mundo was the last man eliminated by Prince Puma in the Aztec Warfare match to determine the first ever Lucha Underground Champion, but never got another championship match after that point. Meanwhile, [[Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio Alberto El Patrón]] later came into the temple and was treated like a king just because he was a former lucha star turned WWE World Champion and back, yet had no qualms about repeatedly needling Mundo in backstage talks about not having what it takes to be number one. Finally, when both men faced off in a number one contender's match, Alberto beat him. At that point Johnny had absolutely had enough of El Patrón, so the following week, as Alberto was defending that #1 contender's spot against Hernandez, Johnny decided to Wrestling/ShawnMichaels the man through Dario Cueto's office window and cost him his title shot.

* DestinationDefenestration: If you're the face in a feud with Johnny Mundo, he ''will'' try to put you through Dario Cueto's office window. He cemented his heel turn by doing it to Alberto El Patron, costing Alberto a title shot. He also did it to Cage, but that time didn't work out as well.

* SpicyLatina: The name "Mundo", as well as his bipolar tendencies would imply this but he's not of the right nationality so it is {{subverted|trope}}. His frequent valet and girlfriend, [[HelloNurse Melina]], widely considered to be one of the more talented "divas", was a straight example though. After their WWE departures they reunited in Lucha Underground against [[Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio El Patron Alberto]].

* RealLifeWritesThePlot:
** Johnny Nitro and Melina attacking Joey Mercury at Judgment Day and getting fired (from Smackdown, since it was during the brand extension era) was due to Morrison and Melina at the time refusing to work with Joey Mercury after a spat and almost getting fired for it. (Their performances at the pay per view saved their jobs, so they were transferred to Raw).
** Morrison initially losing out on the triple threat slot for Extreme Rules was a punishment for Morrison & Melina verbally trashing Trish Stratus. Eventually, he was given his spot back by winning it off of R-Truth, but then he also had to take time off due to a pinched nerve in his neck. Not exactly his finest April.
** Morrison and the Miz's initial tag team title run taking place (at least when it did) was a result of WWE needing to write out Wrestling/MattHardy, one half of the previous champions, to take care of his appendix issues.
