Anthony Bowens is presently out with a knee injury, yet he can still be seen on television in a wheelchair alongside Max Caster and The Gunn Club. Bowens also previously underwent surgery to fix his knee and he is making progress toward that return.
“I would like to just get back in the ring, first and foremost. It’s been three months, three and a half months. I’ve been itching to get healed and do my physical therapy and get going. I miss being in the action. Sitting ringside is not fun. The entertainment aspect and opportunity to show my personality a bit more from the wheelchair has been absolutely fantastic and some of the most fun things I’ve done, but I love wrestling and love that thrill,” Bowens shared.
Bowens would love to get out of that wheelchair and into the ring. He would also love to see The Acclaimed with tag team gold.
“That’s first and foremost, I want to get back in there with Caster and the Gunn Club and keep entertaining people. Max and I, we want tag team gold. We’re getting some of the best reactions, we’re connecting with the people and they really want us to succeed. We really want to succeed. We feel we should be at the top of the best tag team division in the world and holding the tag team titles. We want that affirmation via tag team titles.”
“Beyond that, I just want to keep showing that I’m a good professional wrestler. I felt I was traveling under the radar for the first year at AEW because I didn’t have an opportunity to show what I could do, at least from a singles perspective, and I got that opportunity working with Bryan Danielson and Jungle Boy and Darby (Allin) and (Jon) Moxley. I truly believe that if you keep tossing these names at me that I’m going to keep showing how well I mix with them and that I’m one of the better wrestlers in the world and will continue to prove that. I would love to have more opportunities like that as well,” Bowens concluded by referring to what he wants from AEW in the future.
Bowens last competed on AEW Dynamite on March 9, when he and Caster challenged Jurassic Express for the AEW World Titles but he is yet to return to the ring.
