Hook, who is the son of AEW commentator and former ECW and WWE star Taz, has been featured on AEW television as the silent enforcer of Team Taz. Many fans never thought he would ever wrestle. It seems Disco Inferno is not a fan of Hook.

Hook impressed many fans in his in-ring debut. His debut did massive numbers on social media and racked up larger numbers than even Bron Breakker’s did. AEW held off his debut for a good reason as well.

Since then he has competed in more matches and has performed well in all of them. While speaking on the Keepin’ It 100 podcast, Disco Inferno stated that Hook is very overhyped right now and blasted those who compared Hook to Hulk Hogan.

“Hook is way overhyped right now. He has only had four matches, which have all been squashes. We do not even know if he is capable of cutting a promo, there are so many unknowns with this kid that now it’s annoying that people are talking of this guy as the next Hulk Hogan already and it’s like… come on guys, don’t do that to this kid.

It’s like… he is just a kid and now they are putting all this pressure on him and now what they have done is, these dirt sheet guys and these fans, they’ve created that segment of people that now are actively looking for him to screw up and they’re going to let everybody know when he does. That is simply what this environment brings. You overhype somebody, he better be perfect going forward cause any imperfection that this guy has, the trolls are going to come out of the woodwork.”

We will have to wait and see what the company has in store for Hook as AEW is certainly grooming Hook for bigger things in the future from the looks of it.
