John Morrison: WWE Should Have Given Him a Chance At the Royal Rumble
Miz & John Morrison

John Morrison has been robbed of a huge opportunity.

On Monday Night Raw this week, Morrison was placed in a big match. He challenged the Miz for the WWE Heavyweight Championship in a "Falls Count Anywhere" match.

Both Miz and Morrison put on a good performance. Miz provided the facial expressions to sell the story of the match, while Morrison provided the high impact moments (including a spot where he performed his finishing move from the top of the rope to a table on the arena floor).

It was a performance that was worthy of a pay-per-view match.

Unfortunately for Morrison, though, the match wasn't on a pay-per-view. When he defeated Sheamus at the Tables, Ladders and Chairs pay-per-view to become the top contender, many were under the impression that he was finally going to get a title shot at a pay-per-view.

The Royal Rumble would have been a great place for that to happen. Since the event is flanked by the biggest battle royale of the year, the writers don't have to put together a big shot title match. Keep in mind that the Royal Rumble is also the same place where Hardcore Holly received a title shot (against Brock Lesnar).

That was the same opportunity that should have been afforded to Morrison.
