Q: Are you saying that none of these party have to sign the note?
A: That is correct. If WMC originated, and it endorsed the Note "in blank," then nobody else has to endorse it thereafter. The full chain is there.
As an analogy, endorsing the Note "in blank" is the equivalent of writing a check made payable to "Cash." Anybody who has possession of the check can cash it.
Here's a case you may find helpful:
Deutsche Bank Nat. Trust Co. v. Brock, 430 Md. 714, 730, 63 A.3d 40, 49 (2013)
“the person in possession of a note, either specially indorsed to that person or indorsed in blank, is a holder entitled generally to enforce that note.”
