Kevin Owens might be a former World Champion but he’s just like the rest of us. He fears Hook.

Former Universal Champion Kevin Owens has spent the best part of two decades honing his craft. He’s won numerous World Championships with numerous promotions, and currently stands on the brink of adding another to that collection. But, he is only human.

Posting on social media, a fan rather in tongue-in-cheek suggested that Owens feared AEW’s newest sensation, Hook. This naturally led to Owens being tagged in the post, before the man himself revealed that he does indeed fear Hook, just like the rest of us.

On the December 10th episode of Rampage, AEW finally sent for Hook and the second generation star made his in-ring debut to a raucous reception.

The son of wresting legend and AEW announcer Taz first appeared on-screen back in November 2020. In recent weeks and months Hook had become something of a cult-figure with fans, with the clamour for the young star’s debut increasing seemingly by the minute.

By the time Hook arrived in the ring the hometown crowd were in full voice. The debutant didn’t disappoint his public with an impressive display aggressively and quickly seeing off the challenge of his rival. During the short bout he threw in one of his father’s signature suplexes, bringing an end to the action with a Taz-mission.

The performance drew acclaim from fans, wrestlers and legends alike, with Jim Cornette recently singling the young star out for special praise.

Kevin Owens, who recently put pen to paper on a new multi-million dollar three-year deal with WWE is set to challenge for the WWE Championship once more at Day 1.

Meanwhile, Hook will be back in action AEW Rampage Holiday Bash when he takes on Bear Bronson.
