Joe Hendry spoke about being an entrant in the ROH Pure Championship title tournament that was scheduled to begin this month. Ring Of Honor is not hosting any events at this time but Hendry said he was really looking forward to working the ‘pure’ style in the tournament and recalled a similar match he had with Timothy Thatcher a few years ago.
“That was going to be—I was so looking forward to that. I’ve only ever wrestled one match, fully in that style, from start to finish. It was me versus Timothy Thatcher and literally, it was a case of ‘see you out there’ and we went out there and did our thing. I’m gutted that I couldn’t take part in this [new] tournament and this all happened before that. I really felt it was a chance to show something completely different that I know I can do. So if you want to check that out, I had a match with Timothy Thatcher that was like a ‘pure style’ match.”
Hendry’s match with Thatcher can be seen below; we also added some recommendations to the list and selected some classic Pure Championship matches as well as his match with Kurt Angle and the first-ever main event in Ring Of Honor history.
