After weeks of humorous vignettes, Joe Hendry is finally set to make his in-ring return for Impact Wrestling at Friday's Bound for Glory.
Hendry declared himself for the 20-person Call Your Shot gauntlet match where the winner can cash in for a title shot at any time.
This will be his first action in Impact since a seven-match stint in 2018. This will mark his first U.S. appearance for the company.
Five spots remain for the match which begins with two competitors with others joining after a time interval similar to the Royal Rumble. Eliminations are done over the top rope until the final two competitors are set. From there, it becomes a traditional wrestling match.
The current crop of entrants includes PCO, Rich Swann, Gisele Shaw, Heath, Bhupinder Gujjar, Bobby Fish, Moose, Steve Maclin, Sami Callihan, Killer Kelly, Tasha Steelz, Savannah Evans, Eric Young, Johnny Swinger and Hendry.
