Max Caster Reveals What Rules He Has To Follow In His Freestyle Raps, Origins Of The Acclaimed

Max Caster sat down with PWInsider, where he spoke about his friendship with Anthony Bowens in The Acclaimed.

“It was really scary at first. And it was really the first day that we kind of bonded because Anthony had a deal on the table from another company. He’s told this story. But Tony wanted us to go out and wrestle a match on his show, on Dark. And Anthony was really nervous that if he did that, and let’s say we fell on our face in that moment, Tony didn’t like it, he would get that other deal pulled. And he was going back and forth all day. And we’re about to not go out because he can’t commit to doing this match and I look at him and say, “It’s going to be fine. Okay, let’s go do this match. It’s going to be great. You know we’re both great. can’t screw this up. Let’s go out there and prove to everyone why you do deserve this deal with AEW.” And in that moment, he said, “Okay, I’ll do it.” So he went out there. Both of us, no contract in hand from AEW, and we did that match, and it’s a solid match. And obviously we didn’t know each other in the ring yet, but it was good enough, more than good enough to earn us some contracts. Then when we walked back, past Tony, he looks at someone in the office and says, yeah, these guys are good. And we walked right to the office, get a couple of contracts, and that was it. Other than that, it’s just becoming friends, being forced to become business partners, and checking our egos at the door to where, you know, I know what Anthony’s good at, I know what I’m good at and we can kind of fill the gaps with each other to make the Acclaimed one whole instead of two separate parts coming together and trying to work together every single week.”

On his freestyle raps:

“Well, there’s a lot that goes into it. Honestly, with management, I’m allowed to say whatever I want, and I know what I can’t say. Sometimes people reach out to me and say hey, maybe don’t mention this, don’t mention that, it’s a legal situation. Okay, I understand that. But otherwise, I could say what I want, I could reference who I want, it’s just how I do it. So with Vince McMahon, right, we have to speak the facts – he did retire. Right? So I could say that, but if I start talking about what he’s accused of doing or anything like that with people who you would call victim, then it becomes in poor taste. So you know, now I’ve learned to check myself, Anthony is here to check me too. And if you know, anything is really, really dicey. I’ll probably ask, but that hasn’t happened in so, so long. So it’s cool. All I do is say the things that people wouldn’t expect me to say. But I have to make sure that it is factual and it is straight down the middle unbiased opinion, rather than, you know, putting myself in a category or labeling myself as anything, having a view on anything. It’s just saying the things to get the people to pop for the surprises he said Donald Trump this week, he said Joe Biden this week, it’s really fun. It’s a real fun aspect of my job.”

On the responses to his raps:

“I think anytime I rap against Sonny Kiss is like the most viral thing that I could do. The first one, I think is the one that made John Cena notice me, which was about a year ago, a little bit more than a year ago, when I said booty butt cheeks to Sonny Kiss. And then a week later, it’s one of the most viral videos on the internet, especially coming out of AEW. And then this year, I wrestled Sonny again, and I said that Sonny’s ass is fake or something like that, and again, that one blew up so I’m always surprised at how much the fans react to anything was Sonny Kiss but I think that’s also a testament to how great Sonny is and how loved Sonny by our fan base. And then for the opposite, things that people don’t react to, every single time no matter what, if any sort of reference to rap, which is funny as a rapper. I know who I’m rapping for, fans of hip hop. So, anytime I mentioned Drake’s album being bad or, you know, some sort of local reference wherever we are, that never really gets a reaction. So I stopped doing that.”
