Taz’s son Hook was largely seen as the silent enforcer of Team Taz for the beginning half of his career. Many fans never thought Hook would even compete inside the ring. It seems Bryan Danielson wants a piece of Hook as well.

Hook certainly impressed many fans with his in-ring debut. His debut also did huge 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 been dominant in all of them. While speaking on The Masked Man Show, Bryan Danielson stated that he wants to square off against Hook to see his perspective and approach to professional wrestling.

My time in AEW, I’ve been excited for all the matches because they are all…it’s not like I’m wrestling the same guy twice, with the exception of the Hangman matches and both of those matches were different animals and I was excited for both of them. I wrestled Lee Moriarty and Daniel Garcia in the last two weeks, and not that I picked those two people, they just made sense with the story. I was really excited to see what they would bring to the table. To put to them, ‘Hey, what do you want out of this match? I don’t want to tell you how to do this match, I want to see what you think this match should be.’


That was a lot of fun for me. They’re both young, but they both have really good heads on their shoulders and two completely different human beings and different approaches to wrestling. That’s been fun for me too, being around the younger guys. Maybe they learn something from me, I don’t know, but I’m always interested in their perspective on wrestling because, I don’t know how Daniel Garcia is, but say HOOK, he wasn’t even born when I started wrestling. He doesn’t know Vader vs. Sting from 1992, let alone the 80s stuff I watched as a kid because he has no reference to that. His reference for wrestling is completely different. I’m interested to see their perspective. It’s always a learning experience for me and that’s a lot of fun

CM Punk also doesn’t want to go to jail for hurting Hook. It remains to be seen whether Hook will cross paths with Bryan Danielson somewhere down the line or not.
