Read in your Rampage review that you almost bought that Ethan Page might beat Hook as a swerve. This got me thinking about the right time to beat Hook, and I can't even fathom when that could be.
Keep him far from the world title picture and meaningful belts while he develops sure, but he should go over whoever he faces for the rest of 2023 at the very least. If he continues to improve and it gets to the point where he makes sense as world champion in the next 12-24 months, that's a Goldberg '98 level moment you're looking at and there's no putting the lightning back in the bottle if you beat him before then.
Hook is awesome for his experience level but he’s no Goldberg. You can beat him eventually if the story is right.
