W. Morrissey Comments On Shortening His Name, Shares Story About Apartment He Had With Jon Moxley

W. Morrissey recently spoke with Cultaholic for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During his discussion with the popular pro wrestling digital outlet, the IMPACT Wrestling star spoke about nearly burning down his apartment he shared with Jon Moxley years ago and more.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On how he almost burned down his apartment when living with Jon Moxley in developmental: “Our first week living together [Morrissey & Moxley], I almost burned the apartment down on accident. I put a DiGiorno in the oven. I believe they talk about this on that [WWE] Story Time or WWE show. Put a DiGiorno in the oven and then fell asleep and when I woke up, the entire apartment was filled with smoke and it wasn’t so much that-that was irritating. It was that for months, our clothes smelled like pizza, months, and this is within a week of living with him.”

On how it was suggested that he shorten his name prior to IMPACT debut: “Yeah, so I wanted to disassociate myself from anything I’d done in the past. I wanted a clean slate, a fresh start with IMPACT and I always liked Kevin Nash and Scott Hall when they went to WCW using their real names, so until about 20 minutes before airtime, at Rebellion, I was gonna be ‘William Morrissey’ but then [Doc] Gallows came up to me and Scott D’Amore and Don Callis and we were like, ‘Maybe we should just switch it to W. because William Morrissey, it’s a lot’ and so, like I said, 20 minutes before the show aired, we switched it up to W. Morrissey which now it seems apropos. I like it so much better.”
