All Elite Wrestling Star Anthony Bowens, who is one-half of The Acclaimed with Max Caster, suffered a knee injury sometime early last year and had to undergo surgery in February or March and had to be on the sidelines for several weeks. Bowens revealed at the time that for about 4 months he was competing while he was injured, but he finally took the time that was needed for surgery. AEW President and CEO Tony Khan recently appeared on Busted Open Radio and revealed that Bowens is currently dealing with a knee injury and that he was supposed to be back almost two weeks ago, but he hasn’t been cleared yet.
Khan also said he doesn’t think the injury will keep Bowens out of action for a long time, but Bowens not being there has “jammed him up” for the past several weeks when it comes to creative. There is no word yet on if this knee injury is the same injury Bowens had last year, but updates will be given as it’s made available. The AEW CEO then said doctors originally thought Bowens would only be out of in-ring action for two weeks, but he has already been out for nearly one month, though for him to remain on television, he has been accompanying Max Caster for his matches.
Anthony Bowens last competed for AEW on the March 9th episode of AEW Dynamite, when he and Max Caster challenged Jurassic Express (Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus) for the AEW World Tag Team Titles, but would come up short. The Acclaimed did appear on last week’s episode of AEW Dark, when they defeated Adrian Alanis and Liam Gray, but that match was taped last March 3, which was six days before their match on the March 9th Dynamite.
