Joey Mercury Blames Himself for Drug Issues

Former WWE Tag Team Champion Joey Mercury has posted a unique blog in which he admits his faults and how he "lost it all." Mercury writes: "The well-informed die-hard fans of ROH have heard the rumors. "Joey’s life is in shambles", "Joey has personal issues", "Joey has demons", "Joey showed up in ‘no condition to perform’". That’s the thing about rumors, they’re usually true. In this case, they were. 3 drug overdoses, 7 car wrecks, a 5 month stay in drug & alcohol rehabilitation, and countless broken hearts along the way, including my own. My former employer did everything they could for me. They gave me chance after chance after chance. I did this to myself."
