Max Caster is one of AEW’s many young wrestlers, hungry for attention. That quest to get noticed worked against him in this case. Caster raps his way to the ring alongside Anthony Bowens, but a couple bars recently got him in a lot of hot water. A rap about Simone Biles’ mental health found its way onto an episode of AEW Dark and it was not edited. He also made light of the Duke lacrosse team controversy in the same rap. Fans were enraged as Caster’s name trended on Twitter for terrible reason, and now he faces a suspension for that offensive rap.

Ringside News has learned that AEW suspended Max Caster without pay. He must also enter sensitivity training and complete those courses.

It is unclear if Caster’s pay will go toward a charity. When Sammy Guevara was suspended for his comments about Sasha Banks, his pay was also taken during that time and it was donated to charity. The Spanish God was sent through sensitivity training as well.

The Acclaimed was pulled from AEW Dark this week after the match was already taped. Caster has also lost work on the indies following those comments.


In case you missed it, Caster rapped: “The Acclaimed kicking ass for miles, make you claim mental health like Simone Biles.” He followed that up with, “Sydal is gonna pay the cost, I’m gonna treat those bitches like Duke lacrosse.” Three members of the Duke lacrosse team were falsely accused of rape, and that was the reference he was going for.

AEW removed the episode of AEW Dark with Caster’s rap, and they edited it out before reuploading it. Tony Khan is now editing all future episodes of AEW Dark and AEW Dark: Elevation to make sure that this kind of thing does not happen again. Obviously, AEW is taking this situation seriously.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
