John Morrison speaks highly of the current MLW roster.
John Morrison has wrestled for every major promotion in the world, changing his last name every time to fit the promotion he's working for. As such, the former WWE Intercontinental Champion is a great judge of talent. Currently, Morrison works for Major League Wrestling alongside his wife, Taya Valkyrie.
MLW prides itself on having a diverse roster of competitors that showcase different fighting style variants and experience levels. Speaking with Baby Huey on the In The Kliq podcast, Morrison spotlighted several roster members, including the upstart Billie Starkz and the well-traveled Lio Rush
"Billie Starkz is fantastic," he began. "Lio Rush, I feel like he's so talented. he's had opportunities to shine, and people have seen him do his thing, but the platform of MLW, I think, is going to present him a chance to evolve into the next evolution and a step greater than anything he's done before. Harry Smith, too, is another example of a guy that — actually, just yesterday, I watched Harry Smith in a catch wrestling tournament tap out like three guys. Harry is scary, and he's just like a wall of muscle. He's a huge, scary man that I feel is fascinating to watch. His knowledge of catch wrestling, submissions, and jujitsu, combined with suplexes and professional wrestling, is this crazy combination of skills that I've never seen anywhere else.
"Add to that Enzo, Microman, and there's a lot of people that I think are going to really take advantage of this platform and the creative opportunities it presents to become something greater," Morrison added. "Every time an individual does that, it elevates the organization. I'm just rattling off names. I have so much faith in the roster."
