Max Caster Reportedly Put 'On Ice' In AEW Following Controversial Rap Segment
Caster's rap was cut from subsequent AEW Dark edits
Max Caster's appearances in All Elite Wrestling have reportedly been put 'on ice' following a controversial rap segment that aired on AEW Dark last week.
Caster cut one of his usual pre-match raps on the August 3 episode of AEW Dark, which contained controversial references to Olympian Simone Biles' mental health, rape accusations against the Duke University men's lacrosse team and fake PCR tests. While the segment aired during the live premiere of the show, it was cut from future edits and is not available on demand.
AEW President Tony Khan would subsequently described the rap as 'terrible' and admitted it should have been caught and removed from the show prior to its initial airing.
Caster has since removed all reference of AEW and The Acclaimed from his Twitter page but Fightful Select are reporting that the 32-year-old is still with the promotion.
Caster, according to the report, has seen his appearances for the company put 'on ice' and sensitivity training for him has been discussed. It hasn't necessarily been disclosed what that would entail for Caster, however.
