Source: FORMER CHAMPION SET TO RETURN TO WWE | PWInsider.comFormer WWE Tag Team Champion Joey Mercury, who has also wrestled under the name Joey Matthews, is set to return to WWE according to several sources. He is probably best remembered for being part of the MNM team with John Morrison (then Johnny Nitro), managed by Melina.
Mercury, who was released by WWE in March of 2007, worked independents for a time before retiring in 2008, reportedly due to injury issues. The tentative plan is for Mercury to be part of the [COLOR=#0000FF ! important][COLOR=#0000FF ! important]Smackdown[/COLOR][/COLOR] brand, which puts him on the same show as Morrison.
First, that site sucks. Too many pop-up ads, and AdBlock Plus didn't work effectively.
Second, I'm excited. Melina, Nitro and Mercury were one of my favorite tag teams within the past decade. Heck, probably of all time. All three of them worked very well.
Third, if he does come back to SmackDown! - as the article suggest - do you think they'll have him and Morrison team up again? With WWE re-building the reputation for the tag team titles, and with Morrison pretty much jobbing the past month, I wouldn't put it pass as a flimsy 'WWE wouldn't do that' idea so fast. It seems more and more likely they'll do something with these two, possibly even a feud, or turn Mercury face and begin a tag team with his long time chap, JoMo.
Q: Would you want to see Mercury back in the WWE? If so, do you want him to have ANY relationship with John Morrison, or be on his own without ever mentioning Morrison?
