Joe Hendry: Tommy Dreamer’s Kind Of Taken Me Under His Wing

Joe Hendry is quickly rising to stardom in IMPACT Wrestling.

Joe Hendry has come to IMPACT back in early October after being in IMPACT for a short run in 2018. The former ROH star came over to IMPACT and it was clear he had something as he beat Brian Myers November 10th episode of IMPACT Wrestling to win the IMPACT Digital Media Championship. Now, he sat down with The Paltrocast with Darren Paltrowitz where he talked about his time in IMPACT and emphasized that he has been enjoying learning from IMPACT’s creative team. He named Robert Evans and Jimmy Jacobs as two individuals who have helped out his character on TV.

I’m very fortunate. We’ve got an incredible creative team at IMPACT Wrestling. I’m just a sponge, just soaking up all the information that I can. It feels amazing to collaborate with the creative team. I haven’t really been able to collaborate in this way before, so it’s really fun. I’m learning from that aspect of things all the time. On our creative team, there’s obviously Scott D’Amore, we’ve got Robert Evans, we’ve got Jimmy Jacobs, who are just real sources of knowledge for me. So a lot of the time, what I love is the creative process. Robert and Jimmy have put a lot of effort into helping me take what was kind of like, there was something there, and then let’s build it and put it across on TV as best we can. So that’s been amazing from that perspective,

He also went on to talk about how Tommy Dreamer has taken him under his wing and notes Sabin and Shelley have collaboratively helped him.

Also from an in-ring perspective, I feel like Tommy Dreamer’s kind of taken me under his wing as well, and Tommy’s very good at a lot of the things that I need to work on the most. On the other side of things, the other day I was just kind of discussing move sets and ideas that I had with Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley. It’s one of those things that you don’t want to [leave] people out because it would be like 50 other people I’ve collaborated with in some way. But it’s so cool. I’ll be 10 years in in January, I started training in 2013. There were so many years where it just felt like the same, the same, the same, but whereas now, I just feel like I’m becoming a better performer every day, every show, and it’s very exciting. All I’m focused on is being the best I can be,
