I've seen some matches where a hero under the effect of rupture take damages when pushed by force staff.

Will it also take damage when the hero is hooked by pudge?

Of course, and any other forced movements like Batrider Flaming Lasso, Rubick Telekinesis, etc. – Drake Feb 22 '13 at 16:45

According to their patch notes from October 13, 2011, forced movement should cause damage.

I went through the rest of the patch notes related to Bloodseeker's move rupture and it's the last time it was mentioned in such a way. So yes any forced movement while under the effect will cause damage.

Edit: Here's the video from the comment below showing someone under the effect of rupture being hooked by Pudge. Thank you Jean-Philippe Roy for the video.

In the warcraft 3 custom game Dota, yes you did take rupture damage if hooked. Not sure about Dota 2.
