John Randall Hennigan (born October 3, 1979) is an American professional wrestler better known by his ring names John Morrison and Johnny Nitro. He is currently signed to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) performing on its SmackDown brand.
Before being promoted to the main WWE roster, Hennigan entered Tough Enough III, a televised competition that would award the winner a WWE contract. He was one of the winners in the competition and assigned to their developmental territory, Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), to continue his wrestling training. While situated at OVW, he was placed in a tag team, alongside Joey Mercury, in which they won the OVW Southern Tag Team Championship on one occasion. It was also during this time that he and Mercury, alongside their manager Melina, were known as the stable MNM.
I was mistaken about which Tough Enough he had entered (I thought it was the second one), but I was right that he was in it. His time as Bischoff's assistant was in 2004, well after WCW went under.
Now if only we could get Mike back to the board to see.
