Joe Hendry Makes NXT In Ring Debut

NXT believes in Joe Hendry.

The viral TNA star returned to WWE on Tuesday during NXT and he's competing in action.

Since NXT Heatwave on Sunday, shots of Hendry's epic music video have appeared on screen. The main event of Tuesday's show was scheduled to be Trick Williams and Je'Von Evans vs. NXT Champion Ethan Page and Shawn Spears. However, Evans was attacked during a backstage segment, leaving Williams without a partner. After Williams did an interview, a shot of Hendry appeared on a screen.

When it was time for the main event, Williams made his entrance, and afterward, Hendry's music went off inside the WWE Performance Center and the crowd went wild during his emphatic entrance. Several fans held up signs in support of Hendry as he made his way to the ring and waved their hands from side-to-side.

Hendry and Williams formed a dynamic duo. The two put on a showcase and Hendry hit his Hendry Slam on Spears and got the pin to get the major victory for the TNA star.

Hendry first showed up in WWE on June 18 as part of a battle royal to determine the No. 1 contender for the NXT Championship, thanks to a new partnership between WWE and TNA. He was eliminated early in the match, but in his frustrations afterward, vowed to be back. Now, Hendry could be a major player for NXT, and perhaps could one day make some noise on the main roster.
