-- They changed Johnny Nitro's name because the feeling was that it was not serious enough and he's now in a world champion position. Vince felt people wouldn't take him seriously with the gimmicky Johnny Nitro name.

That one was likely chosen because the similarities between Hennigan and the deceased 60s rock star Jim Morrison are quite striking.

I don't know about anyone else but I truly think that since the start of the WWECW brand, Morrison/nitro is the best champion they have had. Big show in my opinion, was really too lazy and limited and Lashley was way too green, therefore wasn't a draw. I think this kid Morrison with help from Punk and guys like that, can really develop as a main event star.
