AEW reuploads Dark episode following controversial Max Caster rap

Last updated

All Elite Wrestling has re-uploaded the latest episode of AEW Dark after it was removed from YouTube. The newest episode of the show had The Acclaimed’s Max Caster rapping as usual on his way to the ring, but the content was scrutinised by fans online.

It was the 100th episode of the Dark show, so it was big for the company and marred by the controversy. The episode was taped last Wednesday before Dynamite in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Acclaimed (Caster, Anthony Bowens) teamed with Matt Hardy and The Blade for an eight-man match against The Varsity Blondes (Brian Pillman, Griff Garrison), Matt Sydal and Mike Sydal.

‘The Acclaimed kicking ass for miles, make you claim mental health like Simone Biles,’ Caster rapped, referencing the Olympian who recently stepped down from competition due to mental health issues.

‘The Sydals gonna pay the cost, I’m gonna treat those b*tches like Duke Lacrosse,’ Caster added, mentioning the 2006 Duke Lacrosse scandal.

Max Caster causes controversy
