'''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.

* 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.



* DirtyCoward: Heel.

* DirtyCoward: Heel.When he turned heel in Lucha Underground, he started turning into one. By season 2, he was constantly running away from fights, hiding behind his tag team partners, and sneaking up on his opponents with weapons.

* CatchPhrase: When doing TheDirtSheet, he would begin each show with "Hi, my name is John Morrison and..." followed by something humorous. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_knA58HCME Look at this compilation.]] Also, "We don't [blank] at the Palace of Wisdom." For example, in the first episode they showed footage of Finlay dancing in the ring with Hornswoggle, and John's response was "We don't dance like that at the Palace of Wisdom."

** His finisher Starship Pain is a tough move for Morrison to hit on a consistent basis due to the high degree of difficulty. It's not the split-legged corkscrew moonsault that gives him problems, it's a tendency to overshoot the opponent (either by his own doing or by improper position by the opponent) and barely graze him.

* TheRunnerUpTakesItAll: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]. [=JoMo=] is the only known winner of ''Wrestling/ToughEnough'' to have a respectable career. The only other winner to have any real success at all is Maven, and his gimmick was basically "that guy who won ''Tough Enough''" -- what he's best known for is eliminating Wrestling/TheUndertaker from the 2002 Wrestling/RoyalRumble, who then proceeded to beat the utter crap out of him. That being said, most people tend to forget Morrison won TE ''because'' he was so successful -- the most successful alumni from the show are those who were eliminated during their season, including Morrison's former tag team partner Wrestler/TheMiz, the runner up in season four, who went on to become WWE Champion.

* GoSeduceMyArchNemesis: The Melina\Wrestling/{{Batista}} case on Smackdown. Technically Wrestling/ReyMysterioJr was closer to MNM's arch nemesis but he'd probably have known better by then and Batista was his tag team partner at the time.

* OddFriendship: Unfortunate Raw viewers were subjected to his interactions with non wrestler Kevin Federline. Adding Wrestling/{{Umaga}} to the mix did not make things any better, especially after [[DarthWiki/WallBanger Federline scored a pinfall victory over WWE champion John Cena]] rather than [[DoingItWrong Morrison or Umaga doing so]].
