We're told John Morrison reached out to WWE this week about possibly returning to the company. Apparently Morrison suggested a 6-month deal that included him working the 30-man Royal Rumble match then he would see how he was feeling about the business.
Vince McMahon didn't completely shoot it down but at this point was not interested in him returning for only six months. We're told Morrison's movie "career" isn't exactly lining up jobs and he needs his face back out there.
My source says this goes back to the fact Vince "wants you more" if you show no interest in coming back. While Chris Jericho is a much bigger star [than Morrison], Vince "begs" him to return every time because Jericho has outside work and doesn't necessarily need to come back.
