Now that the Road to Wrestlemania has ended and the post-event high is starting to fade, I wanted to write a column reflecting on Morrison’s matches at previous year’s events. Each match could be its own separate article, complete with the commentary and play-by-play I normally do. In fact, I plan to review them in the future. However, this week, I will just write up a quick commentary of each match, including their background and impact, starting with JoMo’s debut at Wrestlemania 24.

In that event, Morrison participated in the Money in the Bank match. The year before, he lost a MITB qualifying match to Punk, but this year, he beat his then tag partner, The Miz to qualify. Their match was on the last Smackdown before Wrestlemania, making JoMo the last person to qualify. I think he qualified so late because the WWE officials were still debating whether or not to have a tag title match at the PPV. They decided not and placed Morrison in the MITB match with Jericho, MVP, Benjamin, Kennedy, and Punk, who eventually won the match.

Even during his first WM, he put on an outstanding performance. JoMo’s moonsault to the floor with a ladder was the most popular move of the match. A clip of this move is always included in the MITB promo videos and some of the Wrestlemania ones. Other highlights include the tower of doom spot with Kennedy and Benjamin, the top of the ladder Walls of Jericho, and when JoMo runs up a closed ladder near the end of the match.

As I mentioned, Punk won the match, but I think it was more important for Morrison to give a great performance. Winning the match was secondary to showing the world how talented he is. MITB gave him the opportunity to do that. He earned the respect and appreciation of many fans at the Wrestlemania. This is my favorite of all JoMo’s WM matches.

After WM 24, Morrison and Miz continued to tag and eventually won the World Tag Team titles. Carlito and Primo Colon joined forces and won the WWE Tag Team Championships. In early 2009, the two teams met twice, with each team winning one match each. The Colons crashed a live episode of The Dirt Sheet and challenged Morrison and Miz to a match at Wrestlemania 25 to unify both titles and prove who the better team really was. They accepted and their feud hearted up quickly. They fought in matches and tried to outdo one another on The Dirt Sheet and Carlito’s Cabana. They even divided The Bella Twins.

During the weeks leading up to the show, it became a lumberjack match. It was also the PPV dark match. I was surprised. Matches always get moved and changed, but because it was a unification match I was sure it would be on the show. I don’t understand the logic behind booking it there.

Sadly, it was inevitable Morrison and Miz would lose (as much as I didn’t want it) because a possible spilt had been teased for weeks. However, the match was fun and entertaining. It lived up to the expectations everyone had for it. My favorite move of the match was the Flying Chuck JoMo hits near the end. It’s one of the best I’ve seen. I think Morrison fans will remember this match as the end of The Greatest Tag Team of the 21st Century, since this was their last PPV match together as a team. They split up two weeks later during the draft.

At Wrestlemania 26, Morrison and Miz would be in another unified tag team title match, but with different partners. Miz and his partner, Big Show, defended against Morrison and his partner, Truth. JoMo and Truth won a tag team title match a few weeks before the show and the two teams immediately began fighting, most in one-on-one matches.

Unlike the previous year, this title defense made it onto the card, as the opening match. The opening match is important because it sets the pace and tempo of the entire events. A bad one can hurt a PPV and distract and anger the audience (as we learned this year.) I think this match was good because of the emotion involved. A match featuring former tag partners is always intense. Emotion and intensity are the extra characteristics that can elevate a match from okay to good and good to great. When there is emotion, every move and gesture has a deeper meaning to it.

My favorite spot in this match is when JoMo Pele kicks Show off the turnbuckles. It’s a strong, powerful kick and just looks amazing. Even with this spectacular move, ShowMiz retained the titles and Morrison and Truth would continue to team up on occasion after WM.

Morrison’s last Wrestlemania match (at least for now) was at last year’s show. This is an event most JoMo fans want to forget. There are a few reasons why. One reason is how short the match was. It lasted less than 10 minutes and felt like filler, even though it was the second to last match. Another reason why Morrison fans dislike it is because JoMo was never officially in the match. This was my main complaint. It was a waste of his (and Ziggler’s) talent. I was glad they were booked for the PPV, but what was the point of doing that if they weren’t going to wrestle?

Even though he was never tagged in, Morrison was great. He performed a wonderful Starship Pain onto Ziggler form the apron to the outside. Ziggler caught him and it looked really cool. Most of the time, JoMo’s opponent is on the mat because if he was standing up in the ring, Morrison wouldn’t have enough room and time to do the corkscrew part of SP. The only time he could do a SP to an opponent while standing is when they are on the outside.

Morrison’s team won, which wasn’t a surprise because celebrities and their teams usually win at Wrestlemania. I don’t think this match and the aftermath negatively affected JoMo as much as some fans and experts believed. Morrison did get another championship shot at the next PPV before having neck surgery and leaving the company.

While he didn’t wrestle at this year’s event, I wouldn’t say we’ll never see him at Wrestlemania again. I just don’t think we’ve seen the last of JoMo in the WWE or at the biggest PPV of the year. While I can’t say for certain, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him next year at WM 29.
