On this week’s edition of AEW Dark Max Caster’s entrance rap mention Olympic star Simone Biles’ mental health issues and the Duke lacrosse rape incident. AEW President Tony Khan was the guest on a recent episode of Busted Open Radio and discussed Caster’s rap.
“On the subject of Dark and one of those teams that broke through and really came and did a really good job through [the show], one of those teams, and if I may, is The Acclaimed. And that is Anthony Bowens and Max Caster. And speaking of Dark, last night on Dark, Max Caster’s rap was terrible.”
“I was not out there in the moment when he did it. It was not during Dynamite; I was out back when Max said this rap. I had not heard it until last night, truthfully. In the editing process, it should have been caught, we deleted the episode and re-posted it with that edited out, but it shouldn’t have aired. And, I put such tight controls on Dynamite, and this would never have happened there because Max’s raps; I have always gone over them with him, and frankly, every segment on Dynamite, I don’t script or write wrestler’s promos, but the bullet points I give.”
“So, in this case, it shouldn’t have happened, and what will happen going forward is I will be taking over the editing of Dark and Elevation myself. I was already editing Dynamite and Rampage, and I do a lot, and now I will also be editing Dark and Elevation. It’s unfortunate that it came to that.”
