Hook and Danhausen will team for the first time at the Double or Nothing Buy-In.
The new team will face Tony Nese and ‘Smart’ Mark Sterling prior to Double or Nothing on May 29 in Las Vegas. This stems from tonight’s Dynamite, where Hook saved Danhausen from Nese.
Danhausen faced Nese in a singles match on tonight’s show, with Nese scoring the win in under a minute after Sterling distracted Danhausen. After the match, Sterling instructed Nese to hit Danhausen with another running knee to the corner. Nese was about to oblige when Hook came out, driving Nese and Sterling away. Hook and Danhausen then met face-to-face, with Danhausen extending his hand. Both shook hands to end the segment.
In recent weeks, Danhausen has been looking to befriend Hook after he failed to curse Hook in their initial meeting. On last week’s Rampage, Danhausen asked Hook to be in his corner for the Nese match, offering him some potato chips. Hook ignored Danhausen and walked away.
Here is the current lineup for Double or Nothing on May 29:
- Hangman Adam Page vs. CM Punk for the AEW World Championship
- Thunder Rosa vs. Serena Deeb for the AEW Women’s World Championship
- Women’s Owen Hart Foundation Tournament final
- Men’s Owen Hart Foundation Tournament final
- Buy-In: Hook and Danhausen vs. Tony Nese and ‘Smart’ Mark Sterling
