A trailer for the latest season of CBS’s award-winning reality series Survivor revealed Impact Wrestling/Lucha Underground star John Morrison has slingshot his way into the cast.
The theme for season 37 — yes, that says thirty freakin’ seven — is “David vs. Goliath.” As you can imagine, Morrison will be on Team Goliath.
“I’m as fast as a Corvette and as big as a Hummer,” Morrison says in the trailer. “Millions of wrestling fans know me as Johnny Mundo, the mayor of Slamtown. I’ve been a champion of every organization that I’ve worked for. I’m something extraordinary.”
Team Goliath is described as competitors who come from privilege and have capitalized on their advantages to crush the competition — including in the professional wrestling ring. Naturally, that leaves Team David to be like the rest of us who don’t have an 8-pack and luscious, flowing hair.
Earlier this month, we reported Morrison had been rumored to be part of the latest Survivor taping.
Since Morrison appears to be taking on a heel persona, we’ll see if his appearances create more memories and drama than wrestling superfan Johnny Fairplay — a first-ballot Survivor hall of famer.
Check out the teaser trailer below.
