Anthony Bowens of AEW tag team The Acclaimed will be out of action for 6-8 weeks with a knee injury that required surgery.
According to PWInsider, Bowens has already undergone the surgery on his knee. The 30-year old star last appeared in the ring for AEW on the 4th of February edition of Dynamite. He and tag team partner ‘Platinum’ Max Caster would be defeated by Chris Jericho and MJF. This followed on from Jericho and MJF winning a number one contender’s tag team battle royal the week previous.
Bowens and Caster began teaming in AEW in October 2020. In recent months the duo had been on something of a winning run in matches on AEW Dark. This led to The Acclaimed receiving an AEW Tag Team Title shot against The Young Bucks. That match took place on the 17th of December 2020 edition of Dynamite with The Bucks retaining the gold.
Since Bowens’ absence from the ring, Caster has had a prominent role in singles competition. Caster would defeat Dark Order member 10 to qualify for the ‘Face Of The Revolution’ ladder match at AEW Revolution.
In a hard-hitting ladder match, Caster, who rapped to the ring with his trademark boombox, would come up short. Scorpio Sky would retrieve the brass ring hanging from above and win the match.
Prior to joining AEW, ‘The Five Tool Player’ Anthony Bowens was a mainstay of the northeastern US independent scene. Bowens made his wrestling debut all the way back in March of 2013.
Everyone at Inside The Ropes wishes Anthony Bowens the best in his recovery.
