AEW’s Future Plans For The Acclaimed

While the tag team has been working with the Gunn Club a lot lately, there’s been tension. Especially since Billy Gunn’s own sons believe he favors Anthony Bowens and Max Caster.

What’s in store for these two? Wrestling Observer Radio’s Dave Meltzer chimes in on all this in a recent edition.

With Gunn’s annoyance over his own sons, plus the rise in popularity of the Caster and Bowens, there’s a chance these two men could turn face. As per Meltzer, this appears to be where the angle is heading now.

At the end of the day, Billy is treating the Acclaimed like they are his sons. Plus, his own sons don’t seem to be acting on common sense.

Meltzer believes Billy’s sons will turn on the Acclaimed, thus, having them transform into baby faces. Only time will tell.

It’s The Natural Progression, Right?

The tag team is strong at getting live fans hyped up. Even though they are heels, they haven’t gotten that much heat from the crowd during their time.

Therefore, it’s the natural progression for a team like this. AEW fans should stay tuned to what will happen next.

Bowens and Caster worked their first tag match in AEW in the fall of 2020 during a Dark episode. They defeated Best Friends, Trent, and Chuck Taylor.

The Acclaimed made their “official” debut on AEW in December that year. At that point, they faced SCU, Frankie Kazarian, and Christopher Daniels, plus, beat them.

There’s clearly a bright future for the Acclaimed in AEW. Here’s hoping they receive a nice tag team titles run, soon.
