Say His Name & He Appears, Well Sort Of — TNA Wrestling Star Joe Hendry’s Face Appears After Ethan Page Wins WWE NXT World Title

Moments ago, Ethan Page overcame Trick Williams, JE’VON Evans, & Shawn Spears to become the NEW WWE NXT World Champion.

The title change happened at the closing of the Heatwave PLE, where Ethan Page was holding up the World Title belt in the ring and Joe Hendry’s face appeared and then the show ended with that.

Joe Hendry appeared on NXT television a few weeks ago as part of the 25 Man Battle Royal to determine the #1 contender for the NXT World Title. Hendry was eliminated quickly by Frankie Kazarian, but the fact that he appeared was pretty monumental.

Joe Hendry is currently scheduled to challenge Moose and five other competitors in a 6 Way Elimination Match for the TNA World Title at the upcoming Slammiversary PPV on 7/20.
