AEW signs Anthony Bowens and Max Caster


Anthony Bowens and Max Caster have signed with AEW.

AEW President Tony Khan confirmed today via an interview with PWInsider that Bowens and Caster have signed, and will be going forward as a team under the name The Acclaimed.

PWInsider also reported that Bowens had WWE interest prior to signing with AEW.

Bowens and Caster have appeared on AEW Dark in recent months, with Bowens previously teaming with Lee Moriarity and Caster losing to Shawn Spears in a singles back back in June. The two teamed together on the October 27 edition of AEW Dark, losing to Best Friends.

Caster, trained by Brian Myers, has wrestled for Create A Pro Wrestling since 2015, winning their championship twice. He has also wrestled for Beyond Wrestling, CZW, and WrestlePro.

Bowens started wrestling in 2013, wrestling for promotions such as Limitless, Beyond, Defy Wrestling, and CZW.  He also competed in a match taped for Impact’s Xplosion show, losing to Fallah Bahh in a singles match back in 2018. He also appeared on a NXT taping back in 2016, teaming with Jonathan Ortagun in a losing effort against The Authors of Pain.
