Joe Hendry Praises IMPACT Wrestling's Creative Team, Says Tommy Dreamer Has Taken Him Under His Wing

Joe Hendry praises IMPACT Wrestling's creative team.

Hendry previously worked for IMPACT for several months in 2018. He subsequently spent some time in Ring of Honor, but the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted run with the company. After he spent several months competing throughout Europe, he returned to IMPACT Wrestling at the Bound For Glory pay-per-view on October 7. A few weeks later, he beat Brian Myers on the November 10 episode of IMPACT Wrestling to win the IMPACT Digital Media Championship.

Speaking on The Paltrocast with Darren Paltrowitz, Henry 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 him flesh 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,” Hendry said.

Hendry also described how Tommy Dreamer has helped him from an in-ring perspective. He noted that he has collaborated with many others, including Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin. The IMPACT Digital Media Champion stated that he feels like he’s improving every day, and he is focused on this continual growth.

“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,” Hendry said.
