What do you think of Joey Mercury?  Do you know him?

I think for a guy his size, who came along in an era where smaller guys didn’t get the play that they do today, he did pretty well for himself.  He was a WWE tag champion as part of the MNM tag team (beating Rey Mysterio and Eddy Guerrero no less).  I don’t remember ever speaking to him in person, though I may have when I was running the ECW website and magazine (I could have written a story on him, I don’t remember to be honest).  

Since Brock Lesnar was dumb enough to declare that he will enter first how come no one has been smart enough to declare themselves number 30? 

If it were an option, every heel would do it.  It’s not an option.

Why did Vince even bother signing EC3?

I have no idea.  It was probably Triple H that actually signed him but whatever the case, WWE has totally wasted him.  He has a lot of talent and should be used much better than he has been.  Or used at all even.

When Shinsuke Nakamura came out during his entrance on Friday Night SmackDown, the graphic said that he was the first Asian born wrestler to win the Intercontinental championship.  I thought that Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat was the first Asian born wrestler to win the Intercontinental championship? 

Steamboat was born in the US.  I believe it was even mentioned in the book Ricky Steamboat: The Life Story of the Dragon.

Has the WWE subtly made it that The Fiend drags everyone he feuds with to the dark side? Finn Balor left Raw, went to NXT and turned heel. Seth Rollins lost his mind and turned on the entire Raw roster. The Miz may have turned heel. And they specifically said that Daniel Bryan is the only one who hasn’t been impacted in that way. Do you think this was done on purpose or is just a coincidence? It’s pretty cool if they did this on purpose because it adds an interesting dynamic to the Fiend’s character.

If they have that in mind, it would be pretty cool.  I can’t say I think that is where they are going right now, but if it ends up that they do go that way, it would be pretty cool long term planning.
