• “He’s making a huge impact in wrestling right now” – Kurt Angle On AEW Wrestler
Taz’s son Hook recently made his in-ring debut in AEW and he has impressed many All Elite Wrestling fans with his work in the ring.
WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle recently praised Hook on his podcast. Below is what he said:
“He’s making a huge impact in wrestling right now. This kid is awesome. He’s going to be a big star, he definitely is.
I hear he’s got one of the top selling t-shirts for Pro Wrestling Tees which is unbelievable.
Kid only had 4 matches in AEW and he’s already a sensation.”
While Angle didn’t say anything negative about Hook’s work, WCW Veteran Disco Inferno said the following about a recent Hook match:
“He’s 140 pounds, he should be fighting like Ricky Morton, fighting from underneath.
Whoever laid out that match, that was like a guy 100 pounds heavier than Hook, and at no point in the match they laid that out with the psychology of a big guy vs. small guy fight.”

• Former WCW World Heavyweight Champion Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Attitude Era Writer & WCW World Heavyweight Champion Vince Russo celebrates his 61st birthday today.
Russo originally started as WWF Magazine editor Vic Venom in 1992, but was promoted to the WWF Booking commission in 1996.
Vince McMahon has confirmed on several occasions that he ended up using only about 20% of Russo’s ideas, but rejected about 80% of them, so when Vince Russo jumped ship to Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in September 1999 and was given free control as the head booker to use 100% of his own ideas, it was not at all surprising that his creative decisions made them lose a huge amount of money and basically killed WCW financially.
Like him or hate him, but he’s still considered one of the most controversial figures in professional wrestling history.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY VINCE RUSSO!
