Joey Mercury Calls Out ROH GM Greg Gilliland Over Talent Issues; ROH Declines Comment

Joey Mercury is taking to social media to voice his displeasure with his former employer.

Last night, PWInsider reported Mercury and Ring Of Honor mutually agreed to part ways. Since that story broke, Mercury has had quite a bit to say about ROH General Manager Greg Gilliland regarding his handling of talent in his tenure.

Mercury shared his correspondence with Gilliand over several Tweets including screenshots of past text conversations, taking the ROH GM to task on several issues. Some of the things Mercury has brought up include:

  • Management allowing Kelly Klein to work in South Africa despite having a concussion.
  • Their lack of care and slow response to Jay Lethal breaking his arm (as well as a Jeff Cobb injury).
  • Alex Shelley working as an athletic trainer (including helping Flip Gordon reset his elbow).
  • Not re-signing Shane Taylor.
  • Having zero concussion protocol.
  • Severe lack of security at live shows.

You can read all of Mercury’s correspondence below, but the former ROH employee had the following to say about his stance on ROH management:

“I chose UNemployment over doing the only thing I’ve ever done or loved doing & I have zero bridges or offers. I just can’t work for someone who knows naught of the matter at hand but makes decisions but isn’t vigilant enough to NOT be there when one of ours is hurt.”

Additionally, former ROH Employee BJ Whitmer backed up Mercury’s statements, saying all that was said about Gilliland is 100% true.

Kelly Klein herself took to Twitter as well to help back Mercury and to still express her love for Ring Of Honor, hoping that the company can grow and do better.
