I was shopping a little while ago and happened to browse the magazine rack… when the latest WWE SmackDown! magazine caught my eye.
For the first time since I started as a wrestling ring announcer a few years ago, I saw a familiar face on a WWE magazine.
Joey Mercury — known to us in the mid-Atlantic as Joey Matthews — wrestled here for years in the late ’90’s and early part of the ’00’s, usually as a tag team with teammate Christian York (who left the business a couple years ago)… I don’t know how many times I called Joey’s name at shows… now he’s on the SmackDown! magazine cover with the rest of MNM.
Finally… I can say “I knew him back when” about someone I know.
It won’t be the last time. 🙂
