Hook In Action, TNT Title Match Set For Christmas Night AEW Rampage
Airing on a special date and time
Two matches are set for a special Christmas night edition of AEW Rampage, including a TNT title match, and the second ever match for Hook.
Hook will be in action against Bear Bronson of the tag team Bear Country. The match was announced during Friday's Rampage broadcast.
Hook wrestled his first ever match on last week's Rampage, defeating Fuego del Sol. Hook earned wide praise for his performance in that match, particularly for his credible-looking offense and his ring presence.
The TNT title will also be at stake next Saturday, as champion Sammy Guevara defends against former two-time TNT champion Cody Rhodes. Rhodes issued the challenge to Guevara on last week's Dynamite.
The two were involved in a segment on tonight's Rampage, as Rhodes got into an altercation with Dan Lambert and Men of the Year. Guevara ultimately made the save to end the brawl.
Next week's Rampage airs at 9 pm EST next Saturday, Christmas night, likely due to the Turner networks' 24-hour marathons of A Christmas Story that begin on Christmas Eve.
The card for next week's AEW Rampage, to be taped on Wednesday, December 22 in Greensboro, includes the following:
* AEW TNT: Sammy Guevara (c) vs. Cody Rhodes
* Hook vs. Bear Bronson
