Ricky Starks Discusses Rising Popularity Of Hook (Exclusive)

In an exclusive interview with WrestleTalk, Ricky Starks discussed the rising popularity of fellow Team Taz member – Taz’s son Hook.

For almost a year now, Hook has been a part of Team Taz, but he still hasn’t wrestled a match or really done anything of notes besides a couple of interferences in matches.

Despite this, his mysterious nature has actually led to him becoming a bit of a cult hero among fans, and his supporters have even named themselves ‘Hookers’, and celebrate as if he’s won the World Championship every time he’s on TV.

During his appearance on the WrestleTalk Podcast, Ricky Starks gave his thoughts on Hook and his popularity, saying:

“I think it’s pretty cool for the fact that Hook hasn’t really said much of anything and he hasn’t wrestled at all. It’s such a crazy thing to think about because he hasn’t done anything, and yet he has this groundswell for him. But that only helps to add the mystique of Hook. What is he about? How does he sound? How does he wrestle? I like his mysterious, cool, James Dean type feel he has going on.”
