Joey Mercury is a former WWE and ECW superstar.
Mercury wrestled under the name Joey Matthews in the now defunct Extreme Championship Wrestling before it's closure and subsequent WWE aquisition. He was eventually signed to the WWE in 2004.
MNM debut by assualting Smackdown superstar Rey Mysterio and would later go on to caputre numerous tag team title reigns, notable feuding with Paul London and Brian Kendrick and Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy. As part of their "A List" gimmick, MNM would wear fur coats to the ring whilst being hounded by Paparazzi.
In 2006 Mercury suffered a now infamous injury at Armageddon where he face was crushed in a horrific ladder accident involving The Hardy Boyz. As a result Mercury was sidelined for months and eventually returned to seek revenge.
MNM would tag for a while longer before Nitro and Melina turned on Mercury taking him out of action (in reality he was suspended in regards to the WWE substance abuse policy). Mercury remained with the company but was eventually released.
He returned to the WWE when he joined th SES (Straight Edge Society) as the "Mystery" Man.
Joey Mercury has only appeared in one WWE Smackdown! game.

Due to MNM's break-up, they are not featured together as a stable. It is impossible to have them make a proper tag team entrance together as their usual self without Melina being with them.

Mercury appears as a heavyweight on the game, despite being well under the 230lbs limit on the heavyweight division. This created problems for many people who wished to play matches against MNM as tag teams such as Paul London and Brian Kendrick or the Mexicools, as cruiserweight wrestlers could not lift or successfully perform many strikes on heavyweights. Despite this snag, Mercury is a well balanced character that can adapt to most match types. However he is best played in normal, tag team matches with Johnny Nitro as a partner or against someone with similar stats such as Paul Burchill. Due to his stats, he is well balanced but does not stand out as a particularly strong character and is often over looked or his partner John Morrison is favoured by most players.
Mercury's primary finisher in the game is the Double Arm DDT.
