Report: Heat On John Morrison- Update On His Future

As reported before, Melina was not allowed into the building at last night's WWE RAW in San Jose. The feeling was that there would have been major drama about her release if they would have let her into the backstage area. The entire WWE security team was informed not to allow her entry. There was a concern that Melina would physically cause a problem backstage.

Also as noted earlier, WWE officials weren't happy with Melina joining John Morrison over the weekend at RAW live events. Officials are very down on Morrison over the incident, feeling that it was a huge breach of backstage etiquette.

Morrison's current deal with WWE is up in a few months and the recent heat adds to speculation that WWE won't resign him. One source adds that Melina may have burnt her bridge with WWE after her reactions online to being released.

Crimson comes out and is limping because of what Angle did to his knee last week on Impact. Crimson says that it has been a long week. He said he used to have a great deal of respect for someone in the back, but there seems to be some issues they have to discuss. Crimson calls out Kurt Angle.

Angle comes out to the ring and grabs a mic. Crimson says that last week Angle was going to eliminate every young athlete wrestler on the roster and Angle chose him first. He says Kurt failed because he is still standing here and he is pissed. Kurt says that Crimson is a nobody going nowhere. Kurt says he was brought in to make guys like Crimson. Without Kurt Angle, Crimson is nothing but a green-ass little bitch. Angle says he has been making people his entire career and it's gotten him nothing but disrespect.

Crimson says no one has disrespected him. The young guys have put Kurt on a pedestal and he says it's an honor to face him. Kurt says that Crimson can't shine his gold medal and Angle says Crimson is going nowhere in this business. Crimson says he is already somebody. He says that next week, Kurt should meet him in this ring and he will show Kurt who he is and why Crimson is here and the now. He says he is real, he is damn real and leaves.
