– During a recent chat with Tony Horton, former WWE Superstar John Hennigan, aka John Morrison, discussed getting to wrestle his real-life wife, Taya Valkyrie, in pro wrestling and why she’s his favorite opponent. Below are some highlights (via WrestlingInc.com):

Hennigan on Tya Valkyrie being his favorite opponent: “My favorite opponent actually is my wife. I’ve wrestled her twice and I’m 0-2.”

On their first match: “The first time she came out with all these dirty dishes and said, ‘You know, when you got married to me, you promised me all these things and now you don’t even do the dishes. As a matter of fact, I brought the dishes here to prove that you haven’t been doing them.'”

On how people reacted to the matches: “We’ve done it twice and people usually say like, ‘You guys look like you were having the time of you lives in there,’ and you are because you’re saying all these things that are so mean, but you both know that you’re joking.”
