Shocking Title Change On AEW Dynamite!

Ricky Starks defended his FTW Championship against Danhausen Wednesday night as advertised, but he didn’t lose his title to his very nice, very evil challenger.

Absolute dispatched with Danhausen pretty quickly after a spear, then grabbed the mic like he did last week and issued an open challenge, pledging that this time was for real. (Last week, Danhausen answered the call, but Starks pushed it off to this episode of Dynamite.)

However, someone decided to send Hook. The cold-hearted handsome devil answered the challenge and bested Starks, despite eating a spear. He managed to reverse a Roshambo into a REDRUM for the tap-out and his first wrestling title. Just like that, Hook is now holding the same rogue title that his father, Taz, introduced in ECW more than 24 years ago, before Hook was even born.

Afterwards, Hook and Starks shared a fist bump as Team Taz partners before Powerhouse Hobbs shockingly turned on Ricky in a post-match angle, breaking their union.

Hook has amassed an 11-0 record to start his professional wrestling career, and also managed to amass a pretty big following. He recently has been palling around with Danhausen and seemingly had gotten sidetracked – he had only wrestled once since a tag match at the Double or Nothing buy-in – but this title win could set him up nicely.
