Joe Hendry, a prominent figure in TNA Wrestling, made his debut on WWE’s “NXT” during a Number One Contender’s battle royal.

This appearance marks the beginning of a collaboration between WWE and TNA Wrestling, allowing TNA talents to feature in WWE programming. Hendry’s entrance was grand, as he confidently declared his intention to eliminate all other competitors and become the NXT Champion.

However, Hendry’s time in the battle royal was brief. He was the first competitor to be eliminated after a confrontation with Ethan Page, a former AEW star now on “NXT.” Oro Mensah blindsided Page, creating an opportunity for the other participants to collectively eliminate Hendry from the match by throwing him over the top rope.

Following his elimination, Hendry expressed his frustration in a video posted to WWE’s X account, questioning Shawn Michaels about the apparent setup against him.

He asserted that he could appear on any show at any time, reinforcing his belief in his star power and challenging the circumstances of his elimination. His remarks hinted at a potential ongoing storyline involving his character.

Hendry gained widespread fame, particularly in the UK, with his viral entrance theme “I Believe in Joe Hendry.” Fans were excited about his WWE appearance, especially after WWE’s new partnership with TNA, which had already seen other TNA talents like Jordynne Grace make appearances.

Hendry’s brief yet impactful debut has set the stage for future storylines and appearances, keeping fans eager for more.
