The Acclaimed is the biggest draw in tag team wrestling and is currently the AEW Tag Team Champions. Everyone loves them no matter what. Although a legendary is shocked how over they are.
On his latest “Grilling JR” podcast, Jim Ross had no idea several months ago the team would be a big deal in AEW. But in the end, he’s happy for them with their success.
“If you told me six months ago that this was gonna be a big deal, I’d have said, ‘Well, we will see,'”
“Those kids got over,” Ross said. “They’ve gotten over, and it was a pleasant surprise that they have gotten over as they have, good stuff man. Some of these young cats are finding their home, and I like that. Two good athletic kids, and their little gimmick the ‘scissor me’ thing seems to be working. It’s funny what gets over, and how that works, but it has been a good deal, so I am happy for those kids, that’s what you want, you want young guys to find their way and all that good stuff.”
Anthony Bowens and Max Caster got over naturally with the raps during their entrances that helped them. The team stole the show at AEW All Out and the crowd reaction led to a rematch at the “Dynamite” Grand Slam special last week when they won the gold by defeating Swerve In Our Glory. We are in for a great ride with The Acclaimed as the champs. Hopefully, they’ll continue to build their legacy.
