AEW Signs Anthony Bowens & Max Caster

Bowens & Caster

AEW has tonight confirmed the signing of ‘Platinum’ Max Caster and the ‘5-Tool Player’ Anthony Bowens.

The pair will be known as The Acclaimed going forward. The news was initially broken by PWInsider.com.

Bowens sat down with Inside The Ropes‘ own Kenny McIntosh to chat about his career so far, how he got involved in wrestling, how his coming out story had a positive effect on his career and much more. Telling ITR whether we’d see him in AEW again, Anthony Bowens said:

“I have no idea. Honestly, I’m trying to take things day by day. So, if the call comes, the call comes. If not, then I’m going to keep moving on.

I said a long time ago that, I kind of lost the fun aspect of wrestling, because I felt like I was just wrestling to get signed as opposed to the way I came in, which was enjoying pro wrestling, because I love it. It was my passion. And once I really dropped that vibe of it you know the, “I got to do this because this might get me signed. This might get me here.” Once I kind of got rid of that mindset, everything started to happen for me and I started having more fun again.

I just want to keep having great matches. I’m going to keep entertaining people and want to keep finding ways to get better. And if that means AEW, if that means just doing more independent shows, I’ll do it because I love professional wrestling.”
