The word going around in WWE is that Joey Mercury is not scheduled to return to the company. If he is, nobody knows about it right now. He is simply doing this media stuff to create buzz for himself from the looks of it. Mercury was released from his WWE contract on March 26, 2007 due to issues with drugs.

As noted yesterday during the afternoon hours here on the website, WWE Hall of Famer Blackjack Lanza and former WCW wrestler Lenny Lane were backstage at last night's Raw in Minneapolis.

Edge appeared on the FOX affiliate out of Orlando last week promoting SmackDown's move to sister station myNetworkTV. You can see video of his appearance at the following MyFOXOrlando.com.
