Joey Mercury Update, What You Won’t See On Smackdown, NXT Name Change, Natalya & R-Truth

- Joey Mercury worked as a producer backstage at this week’s Monday Night Raw. We first broke the story here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com Premium in September. One of the things that Triple H wants to accomplish with the WWE Performance Center is using it as a training ground for not only talent and referees but producers, ring announcers and other jobs as well.

- After this week’s Smackdown taping was over, there was a 20-man battle royal with the winner getting a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship. Both bouts were dark match main events as Bray Wyatt won the battle royal and went on to challenge Alberto Del Rio. Bray won via count out and Damien Sandow teased “cashing” in but he was tamed by The Wyatt Family.

- Shawn Spears is working in WWE developmental as Tye Dillinger.

- Natalya and R-Truth visited children at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus on Tuesday. You can view a photo of them embedded below:

    Bray Wyatt vs cena would be better than del rio vs cena anyday. Anything is better without del rio in it!
