NXT Debut Date Revealed, More on Mercury’s WWE Return

Nick Paglino

WWE.com is reporting that the debut edition of NXT will be on February 23rd on SyFy. NXT will be taking over ECW’s current time slot.

We recently reported that former WWE star Joey Mercury will be returning to WWE, and Mike Aldren is now reporting that one possible plan for Mercury’s return is to have him join CM Punk’s straight edge society. Because Mercury was released from WWE back in 2007 due to an addiction to pain killers, the story line would play on his past drug use and how CM Punk "saved" him from his problems.
