John Morrison plans on climbing the ladder at Money in the Bank like a waterspout.
Tonight, John Morrison will compete in Men's Money in the Bank Ladder Match against Riddle, Ricochet, Drew McIntyre, Big E, Kevin Owens, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Seth Rollins. Ahead of the event, Johnny Drip-Drip joined The Bump to preview the night ahead and said that he feels as though this current iteration of his character is the best version of himself. Furthermore, having never held the WWE or Universal Titles before, he acknowledges that there is added pressure on himself to emerge victoriously.
"Of course, yes, and that's why I feel like all these guys tonight are hurtin' for a squirtin'. Big time. Do you know what I mean? They're about to get in the water and feel the slaughter that's coming their way from Johnny Drip Drip and personally, this iteration of me is all about being the best version of myself. The more I think about it the more I realize the best version of me is better than everyone else... That, combined with the opportunity and pressure, and like you said, Kayla, that being on my bucket list, one of the things I really want to accomplish in my wrestling career is motivating," Morrison said.
As for whether or not he has thought of any nicknames for himself should he win the match, Morrison said he thinks about that stuff all of the time.
"All kinds of stuff," Morrison began by saying. "Mr. Moisty in the Bank. C'mon! America's Moist Wanted is keeping things moist. You know what I'm talking about? Who got this ladder drip started? Johnny. Who's parkour be gnarly? Johnny. Who got that famous doggy? Johnny. Who be climbing them ladders to money? Johnny. Yeah, you know, I think of that kind of stuff all the time."
Although he is the wettest man in the match, it won't be Morrison who'll be slipping and sliding around the ring. Johnny thinks his opponents will be the ones at a disadvantage, finding the ladders to be akin to an ice skating rink.
"Oh, I'm worried about the other guys slipping off the ladder. See, think about that. I'm the only man moist enough to ride the dry slip and slide. But I got the experience. The other guys, they don't know what to do. They're going to be slipping and sliding all over the place like the ladders are an ice skating rink. I feel so bad for them."
