Max Caster pulled from an independent event after controversial remarks

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.

Independent promotion Beyond Wrestling has now announced that Max Caster will not be appearing at their next event. It is not confirmed if this is related to the controversial comments.

AEW will be heading to Pittsburgh for next week’s episodes of Dynamite and the world premiere of AEW Rampage. The following has been announced for the shows on Wednesday 11th and Friday 13th:
