The team that the world didn’t know it needed, and most certainly doesn’t deserve, has finally arrived, Hook and Danhausen are now as one.
From the moment that Hook and Danhausen first met, they were either going to tear each other apart or go on to form one of the most unlikely teams in AEW history. To the delight of the Long Island crowd on the May 11th edition of Dynamite, the two stars chose the latter.
Danhausen had spent weeks attempting to curse the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil, but the second generation star appeared impervious to his advances. As a result, the former Ring of Honor star changed tact and attempted to create a very nice, but very evil tag team.

However, on the May 6th episode of Rampage, Hook again walked out on the face-painted star, after he asked the young star to be in his corner for his in-ring AEW debut. Fast forward to Dynamite, and Danhausen was scheduled to meet Tony Nese, and as anticipated, Hook wasn’t at ringside.
The match itself was over in a matter of seconds, as Nese caught Danhasusen by surprise, with a running knee. He then proceeded to deliver the knee twice more at the behest of Mark Sterling. At this, Hook came down to the ring a man on a mission, with Nese and Sterling beating a hasty retreat.
With their shared rivals out of the way, Hook and Danhausen shook hands in the middle of the ring to an incredible ovation.
Elsewhere on the show, Adam Cole advanced to the semi-finals of the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament after making Dax Harwood tap out in the middle of the ring with a Sharpshooter.
