On the latest episode of AEW Dynamite, the main event saw Hangman Page & Preston Vance take on Brian Cage & Powerhouse Hobbs. Page & Vance got the win after Brian Cage would leave Hobbs in a handicap situation. Cage refused to use the FTW Championship during the match, prompting Ricky Starks to slap him. However, with Cage likely on the way out of Team Taz, it’s time for another member to make his debut. Taz’s son Hook is ready to go.
Hook Has Been Training With Jerry Lynn For His Debut
While he hasn’t done more than get involved in group beatdowns with Team Taz on TV, behind the scenes Hook has been hard at work. Alongside Brock Anderson, the son of Arn Anderson, he’s one of the top prospects that AEW has. Anderson makes his debut next week alongside Cody Rhodes to take on QT Marshall & Aaron Solow.
With Anderson making his debut, it’s likely that Hook is ready for a July debut. He’s been getting good reviews from backstage in AEW, and has already gained a large fanbase on reddit from fans. Prior to joining AEW, Hook trained with Pat Buck and Curt Hawkins’ Create-A-Pro wrestling school in New York, then Cody Rhodes & QT Marshall in Atlanta before finishing up with Jerry Lynn.
AEW Has A Promising Future With Rookies
While the current top stars of AEW are established names like Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, Jon Moxley & Chris Jericho, they aren’t stupid enough to think they will last forever. AEW has a vast array of talented rookies and up and comers that will be the stars that make their legacies in AEW. We’re already seeing names like Jungle Boy, MJF, Sammy Guevara, and Darby Allin.
The next generation will include names like Brock Anderson, Hook, Dante Martin and more. They might not be incredible out of the gate, but they’re long term investments for the company, and shows like Dark: Elevation are perfect for them to get more experience in front of crowds. Professional wrestling is a revolving door of an industry, and developmental projects are tomorrow’s stars.
