The meaning of «joe hendry (wrestler)»

Joe Hendry (born 1 May 1988) is a Scottish amateur and professional wrestler, currently signed with Ring of Honor (ROH).

Hendry is also known for his appearances in his native Scotland with Insane Championship Wrestling (ICW), where he was a one-time ICW Tag Team Champion, in England with New Generation Wrestling and Defiant Wrestling (formerly What Culture Pro Wrestling), and in the United States with Impact Wrestling.

A decorated amateur wrestler, Hendry has earned British Senior National Championships in freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling. Hendry represented Great Britain internationally in freestyle wrestling at the Commonwealth Wrestling Championship[3] in 2017, and subsequently earned a position on the freestyle wrestling team for Scotland at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.[2]

Hendry initially trained to become a professional wrestler with Damian Mackle, Mikey Whiplash, Robbie Brookside, and Marty Jones at the Source Wrestling School.[1] In 2014, he made two appearances for WWE: as a Rosebud on the 19 May episode of Raw,[1][4] and as a Russian diplomat on the 10 November episode of Raw.[5] His first Canadian tour was with SMASH Wrestling.[1] He has also worked for Pro Wrestling Ulster.[6]

In 2013, Hendry began regularly appearing for Insane Championship Wrestling (ICW), and was first introduced as a member of James R. Kennedy's stable, the Kennedy Administration. He entered into a rivalry with Big Damo, before feuding with fellow Kennedy Administration member Kenny Williams. Williams won the ICW Zero-G Championship during this time, and Hendry faced him several times for the title but was unable to win it.

Hendry later formed tag team the Local Fire with Davey Boy. Together, they entered the ICW Tag Team Title Tournament (held to crown new champions once Polo Promotions left the company after winning the belts) and beat Mike Bird and Wild Boar in the finals at Shug's Hoose Party 3 on 31 July 2016 to win the vacant ICW Tag Team Championships.[7] They lost the titles on 11 September 2016 to Polo Promotions in a ladder match.[8]

On 27 July 2019, Hendry was forced to leave ICW after losing to Leyton Buzzard in a singles match at Night 1 of Shug's Hoose Party 6. This led to him signing with Ring of Honor just days later.

Hendry made his debut for New Generation Wrestling (NGW) in 2015, losing a match to Nathan Cruz before forming Team Scotland with fellow ICW wrestlers Davey Blaze, Lionheart and Kid Fite. Team Scotland often antagonised NGW Champion Nathan Cruz and eventually challenged Cruz to face them in an eight-man tag team match with Cruz's title on the line with the stipulation that if Cruz or any of his teammates were pinned, he would lose the title. Cruz retained his title in the eight-man tag team match in November 2015.[9] Hendry, Lionheart and Kid Fite next appeared for NGW in May 2016, all three answering the NGW Tag Team Championship Open Challenge set by The UK's Biggest Tag Team (Stixx and Colossus Kennedy). After Hendry used the belt as a weapon, the trio became the new tag team champions.[10] The official name for the team was later confirmed to be Insane Fight Club.
