During John Morrison and The Miz' feud with Bad Bunny and Damian Priest, Morrison & Miz would create rap videos mocking the Grammy-winning artist.
Thus, Johnny Drip Drip was born. Since then, the drip stick has been introduced and Morrison has leaned into the nickname on television.
Speaking to Rick Ucchino of Sportskeeda, Morrison's wife Franky Monet explained the origins of Johnny Drip Drip.
"We were all driving in a car, Me, John, Tessa (Blanchard), and Keira (Hogan) after a taping to go and eat dinner. At this, you know, 24 hour diner. Something ridiculous in New York. And we were playing Cardi B in the car and we're all delusional from lack of sleep and all this kind of stuff and being super hungry. And John, I don't know if anyone knows this, but John likes to rap (laughs). He started rapping to Cardi B. And it was within that car ride that Johnny Drip Drip was born. I don't even remember who it was that said like, 'Oh my God, Johnny Drip Drip!' But like, it just became a thing. And then if you look at the first music video that Miz and him did right after COVID had started, for that WrestleMania last year, that was the introduction to the WWE universe, to who Johnny Drip Drip was. Listen, sometimes there's a lot of drip drip talk. Okay. It's a lot. It's a lot, but he's having the most fun I've seen him have in a long time," she said with a laugh.
Johnny Drip Drip qualified for the Men's Money in the Bank ladder match on Monday's WWE Raw by defeating Randy Orton.
While Morrison is finding success on Raw, Monet is at NXT and making an impact of her own. As for when the duo may come together on WWE television, Monet believes it's possible, but wants to continue to establish herself in NXT first.
"I think that we have unconditional chemistry that can not be denied on screen, in the ring, you know? But I want to make a point of having the WWE Universe learn who I am on my own as well. So I think that this time in NXT for me is very important. I'm being reintroduced to some fans who've never heard of me. And I just think it's important that they get to know who I am on my own, first. So eventually, absolutely. I can't wait for Franky Drip Drip (laughs), but I'm also just really excited to find my way and have everyone know who I am and what I bring to the table on my own as well," she said.
Monet is set to compete on Tuesday's NXT as the "encore" to her world premiere.
Fightful will have live coverage of NXT beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
