An IMPACT Wrestling star has revealed that Tommy Dreamer has taken them under his wing.
Since making his return to IMPACT, Joe Hendry has become one of the fastest rising stars in the company.
Hendry recently won his first championship gold by beating Brian Myers for the Digital Media Championship on the November 10 edition of IMPACT on AXS TV.
Speaking on The Paltrocast with Darren Paltrowitz, Hendry emphasized he has been enjoying learning from the IMPACT Wrestling creative team.
“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.”
Hendry continued on to highlight some of the members of the IMPACT creative team, saying:
“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.”
In regards to who he considers a mentor in the company, Joe Hendry praised Tommy Dreamer for taking him under his wing.
“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.”
As previously reported, IMPACT Wrestling paid tribute to a staff member who recently passed away.
