AEW pulls controversial Max Caster rap from AEW Dark

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

AEW removed a controversial pre-match “freestyle” rap delivered by Max Caster from Tuesday’s AEW Dark online show. Caster delivered lines regarding the Duke Lacrosse team (three teammates were falsely accused of rape in 2006), U.S Olympic gymnast Simone Biles and mental health, and a rhyme regarding Julia Hart’s feminine hygiene. The rap was included in the premiere stream of Dark before it was removed.

Powell’s POV: The rap can be viewed in a tweet below Caster’s own pre-show plug in which he said fans would “LOVE my freestyle.” Pardon the f-bomb that was used by the person who posted the footage on social media. While you can certainly hear worse from some actual musical artists, it’s still astonishing that this made the premiere cut for an AEW YouTube show that was taped six days earlier. AEW has yet to comment on the matter as of this late Tuesday night update.

  1. Well that was mean-spirited

  2. You’re astonished that the company that willingly put convicted felon and drug addict Nick Gage on TV, and then ran a Dominos ad while he was attacking Chris Jericho with a pizza cutter, would air this rap without realizing there might be some push back?

    This company tried to sign human trash bag Joey Ryan.

    This company puts Marko Stunt on air even though he did an indie show (while under AEW contract) where he sucked a giant dildo in the middle of the ring – on the same show that literally had a Twink Gauntlet match.

    AEW will put anything on the air and only back off if they catch heat from sponsors or a large enough portion of their fanbase. To think it’s astonishing that they let this run the first time requires wearing the worlds largest blinders.
