HOOK defeated Ricky Starks to win the FTW Championship on tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
HOOK slipped out of an offensive move and then revered into the Red Rum to win the title as the fans in the arena popped big time.
Prior to this match, Starks beat Danhausen in a quick match. Starks then grabbed the microphone and asked for a tougher challenge and that is when HOOK walked out to the ring. It was notable that HOOK wore orange for the first time.
When the show returned from commercial break, Starks gave a passionate speech about making the FTW Championship relevant again.
He said he was tired of waiting around for a big opportunity. It seemed he was ready to reveal his intentions to go for an official AEW singles title.
Before he could finish his promo, Powerhouse Hobbs attacked him.
Hobbs left Starks laying in the center of the ring after landing a spinebuster.
