Hook’s debut is in the books.
The son of wrestling legend Taz and member of the Team Taz faction in AEW made his successful in-ring debut at Friday night’s AEW Rampage show on TNT, defeating Fuego Del Sol in an impressive inaugural performance.
After the taping of the match on Wednesday night, Hook spoke with Pitchfork for an interview, during which he reflected on the match and the use of the Action Bronson rap song for his entrance theme.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On using Action Bronson’s track for his entrance theme: “I’ve been an Action Bronson fan since I was in sixth grade. I would hear him shout out all these old school wrestlers, old school strong man s**t, and all these old athletes. With that and the New York vibe, I had a feeling that my dad would f**k with it as well. When I showed him, he loved it.”
On having his first match at the Rampage taping: “It was hard as f**k, honestly. It was tough, man. I was excited. I felt like I could run through a brick wall before going out there. Having Action Bronson for my debut in New York? It was surreal.”
