They say that anything can happen in the world of professional wrestling and earlier this week Joe Hendry made a surprise appearance on NXT when he entered the battle royal to determine the new number one contender for the NXT Championship. Unfortunately Hendry didn’t last long as he was eliminated by Frankie Kazarian, but his appearance on the show got the wrestling world talking.

Recently Joe Hendry spoke to Inside The Ropes about his surprise appearance on NXT, and he revealed that he didn’t know it was happening for sure until the day before.

“I had 2 flights booked, one if it was happening and one if it wasn’t happening, but I didn’t know for sure until the day before. I literally went straight from doing Chris Van Vliet’s podcast to the airport and straight to Orlando.”

Hendry then went on to praise the NXT crew when he said, “I’m extremely grateful to all the staff in the Performance Center from the wrestlers themselves to the coaches, to production, to all the staff, the medical, everyone in there made me feel so at home and they were so open to collaborating.”
