It looks like The Acclaimed has been pulled from tonight’s AEW Dark episode.
AEW previously announced The Acclaimed’s Max Caster and Anthony Bowens vs. Hunter Knott and Rosario Grillo for tonight’s Dark episode. However, the original tweet was deleted and a new tweet was posted for the show, which did not include the match with The Acclaimed.
The Acclaimed was involved in controversy earlier this month after Caster made a rap during their entrance on the 100th episode of Dark. As noted at this link, Caster made controversial references to Olympian Simone Biles, the 2006 Duke Lacrosse rape allegations scandal, and AEW’s Julia Hart. You can click here for what AEW President Tony Khan said about the rap, and you can click here for news on Caster being pulled from an indie event.
Caster has not appeared on AEW programming since that night, and has been quiet on social media.
