AEW has officially announced a new match for this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. FTW Champion Hook will be stepping into the ring for a highly anticipated showdown against “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry.
The match comes as a result of the recent storyline development between the two competitors. At last month’s Forbidden Door event, Jungle Boy shocked the AEW universe by turning heel and launching a vicious attack on Hook. Now, Hook is seeking revenge and aims to defend his FTW Championship against his former friend.
In a pre-taped promo that aired during Friday’s Rampage, Hook issued the challenge to Perry, setting the stage for their first-ever singles match. With seven successful title defenses under his belt, Hook will be looking to secure another victory and continue his dominant reign as FTW Champion.
Alongside the Hook vs. Perry clash, AEW Dynamite will feature an action-packed card that includes a Blood & Guts match between The Golden Elite (Kenny Omega, Kota Ibushi, Young Bucks & Hangman Page) and Blackpool Combat Club (Jon Moxley, Wheeler Yuta & Claudio Castagnoli), Konosuke Takeshita, and PAC. Additionally, the Blind Eliminator tag team tournament finals will see MJF & Adam Cole facing off against Sammy Guevara & Daniel Garcia.
AEW fans can expect an intense and thrilling night of wrestling as Hook and Perry go head-to-head in a highly anticipated encounter. As a reminder, Ringside News will have live play-by-play coverage of the event and keep you updated with any news headed into the show.
