-- 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. A whole bunch of people including Dusty Rhodes, Dave Lagana, WWE.com writer Jen Hunt and others came up with suggestions for a new name. Vince picked the John Morrison name.

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.
