The Salt Mine: First Impressions, the Power of the Entrance

Hey, everyone! Jordan here, for another article for The Salt Mine on Rasslin Rehash.

So, this week I thought I would talk to you all about the idea of first impressions and what they mean for a wrestler – not just from the moment they first step out onto the stage, but from the very moment their music hits, right to their first movements in the ring.

So, the first place I would like to start with this is with a man who wrestles for ICW, based out of Edinborough, Scotland. His name is the Local Hero Joe Hendry. Hendry is a man who I myself only became aware of thanks to the power of YouTube this very week, and is unique in that he has taken the idea of the first impression further than almost anyone in wrestling ever has done before.
