AEW Star Max Caster was set to compete at last night’s episode of Dark, where he was supposed to team with Anthony Bowens as The Acclaimed were scheduled to take on Hunter Knott and Rosario Grillo in Tag Team action, but AEW’s official Twitter account deleted the match announcement and re-posted it, with no mention of the match Max Caster was supposed to compete in, though no specific reason was given as to why the match was removed from the show.
As previously reported, Max Caster revealed his latest rap last Tuesday on Dark as The Acclaimed were making their entrance for a huge 8-Man Tag Team Match, but Caster’s rap was so controversial that the episode of Dark had to be re-uploaded due to the backlash the company received on social media, so it is likely that his controversial rap is the reason for the match and Caster being pulled from Dark.
According to Fightful and Ringside News, Max Caster is currently in a lot of trouble right now and he has even been suspended for two months without pay. It would also be mentioned that Caster must enter sensitivity training and pass the courses given to him before he’s brought back. Shortly after Caster was removed from last night’s Dark episode, he removed all references to his team and to AEW from his Twitter account, but Caster is reportedly still with the company, he’s just suspended. Max Caster has also been extremely quiet on social media since he revealed his controversial rap.
The AEW Star’s rap included a reference to Simone Biles, who withdrew from the recent competition due to an issue with mental health, a line that referenced the 2006 Duke Lacrosse scandal, where three of Duke University’s men’s Lacrosse team members were declared to be falsely accused of a rape charge in Durham, North Carolina and a reference to Julia Hart.
AEW President and CEO Tony Khan even gave his comments on Caster’s controversial rap and said that it was terrible and it was something that shouldn’t even have aired in the first place and going forward he will be doing the editing part himself for both Dark and Dark: Elevation. Updates will be provided on Max Caster’s AEW status and future once it has been made available.
