WWE’s latest “Where Are They Now?” catches up with former tag team champion Joey Mercury, who has been working in WWE developmental for some time now. Mercury has worked with each member of The Shield and it was noted in the article that they see him as the 4th member of their group. Mercury is currently one of WWE’s most-respected producers and a mentor to up and coming talents.
Seth Rollins said of Mercury:
“He is a mastermind when it comes to wrestling psychology, and the ins and outs of being in the ring. He loves teaching people how to do things and do them better. He’s a talent maximizer. He takes your best assets and makes them better. He takes the things you’re terrible at and helps you improve. I think he’s found peace. He once told me that he’s never had a feeling in the ring by himself that compares to the feeling he gets [working with Superstars].”
Paul Heyman, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns also praised Mercury, with Ambrose saying a dozen WWE Hall of Famers will thank Mercury in their acceptance speeches.
