John Morrison Should Not Go from WWE to Ring of Honor

There's been a handful of wrestling fans who feel that John Morrison should sign with Ring of Honor now that he has left WWE, but that would be a mistake.

Ring of Honor will not be able to make him a complete performer. While working with some of the better in-ring performers in the country would do well for Morrison's technical skills, it does not "fix" what WWE felt was holding him back.

His in-ring performance was not a reason why WWE kept him from the top spot. It was his character development and microphone skills.

As fun as it is to watch, Ring of Honor simply has yet to build their brand recognition to the point where they need to be. Wrestling there means that the majority of wrestling fans will slowly forget about Morrison.

The company has expanded into more markets over the last few months, but that doesn't necessarily mean that wrestling fans have tuned in.

Another reason why Morrison might be hesitant to join Ring of Honor is financial concern. They simply cannot afford to pay him as much as TNA or WWE can. Every wrestler has a shelf life, and they tend to want to make as much money as they can while they can still physically perform.

If Morrison wants to eventually get back with WWE, his best options are to either go to TNA (where he can be seen by a large number of wrestling fans) or make a name for himself in Hollywood somehow. If he can make a name in Hollywood like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has, he could help his star potential in wrestling.  TNA would keep him in wrestling form.

Either would be more helpful than Ring of Honor.
