One of the producers for the 'Over The Budget' Battle Royal was former three-time WWE Tag Team Champion Joey Mercury. Unfortunately for Mercury, he was not able to enjoy the match from backstage at 'All In' as he was arrested Saturday morning according to PWInsider. The site notes that Mercury was arrested in Schaumburg, IL the morning of 'All In' and the Schaumburg Police Department confirmed that they came in contact with Mercury at 6:58 AM at the location that Starrcast was held.

It was tipped to the authorities that a man was sleeping in his car outside of a hotel and that man was Joey Mercury, real name Adam Birch. The authorities approached Birch while he was in his car and after running his information they discovered that Birch was wanted for an outstanding warrant in Orange County, FL. The Schaumburg P.D. confirmed to PWInsider that there are no pending charges against Joey Mercury but he is being held on $2,500 bail at the Cook County Department Of Corrections in Chicago. Mercury does have a court date of September 4th which he may need to be transferred back to Florida to attend.

 

Despite the absence of Joey Mercury the show rolled on and to hear Fightful's podcast crew's thoughts on the show, head over to the Fightful YouTube channel.
