One of the best aspects of AEW is certainly the almost-limitless depth when it comes to their tag team division. It is no exaggeration to say AEW has one of the best tag team divisions in the world right now. Max Caster also bragged about his team’s popularity and, fitting with his brazen personality, he was not shy about it.

The Acclaimed, comprised of Anthony Bowens and Max Caster, has slowly become one of the most popular tag teams in AEW. This is thanks to their in-ring skills and rapping gimmick.

While speaking with Brandon Walker on Barstool Rasslin, Max Caster talked about The Acclaimed’s presence on AEW television. Caster bragged that fans watch AEW Dark only for The Acclaimed.

“It’s amazing how our charisma and screen presence and gravitas in the arena gets overlooked when we talk about how good The Acclaimed is because it is a huge strong point for us. Obviously, when you look at other wrestlers on the show and other tag teams, there is nobody more charismatic than The Acclaimed, there is nobody more unique than The Acclaimed. Our entrance is must watch every single week, not to mention our matches. One of the number one things I get from fans, when we meet them is, ‘You guys are the only reason we watch Dark.


You’re the only reason we watch Elevation.’ People tune in to see our entrance. There is a lot of value in that, just having us on the show. Maybe some fans are on the fence, ‘maybe I’ll watch this week, maybe I won’t,’ but every single week, they are going to watch The Acclaimed because we are so charismatic and so awesome. Our entrance, in the ring, the way we look, the way we act. Everyone loves us, and that’s true.”

The Acclaimed also recently made it clear they want to square off against The Hardy Boyz. We’ll have to see when the two teams will duke it out inside the squared circle as fans would certainly love that match.
