** 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.

** On the 2-7-11 episode of RAW, Morrison, after celebrating a victory against a member of the [[Wrestling/TheNexus New Nexus]], was attacked [[InTheBack from behind]] by New Nexus leader Wrestling/CMPunk, who pepper sprayed him [[EyeScream in the face]]. Fast forward a week to the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czA4wJDnEhQ Valentine's Day 2011 episode of RAW]], where he and [[BlackBestFriend R-Truth]] are in a tag-team match with [[Wrestling/CurtisAxel Michael McGillicutty]] and David Otunga from the New Nexus. When R-Truth finally tags him in, cue Morrison — whose face was still obviously swollen from the mace attack and whom the announcers were questioning whether he could even see enough to wrestle. Morrison hardly attempts to tap into the '[[LeParkour Parkour offense]]' for which he is so well known. Instead, he flies into a rage and starts beating on every member of Nexus he could get his hands on — even Mason Ryan, who ''wasn't in the match.'' After [[FastballSpecial literally throwing R-Truth over the ring at the two other Nexus members]] to make sure they didn't interfere, he turns around, shouts, "I hope you're watching this, Punk!" and hits Michael [=McGillicutty=] with a running knee smash [[MichaelCole right to the skull]]. After the pinfall victory, cue a shot of Morrison with his hair disheveled and an overall [[EyeTake facial expression]] of which Wrestling{{Edge}} would have been proud. Moral of the story: ''Do not piss John Morrison off.''
