Everyone knows heels want warmth. And I get it, AEW is meant to be the choice to WWE for “actual” wrestling followers, those who lengthy for a return to the grittier, TV-14-rated Angle Period. However there are a bunch of followers (learn: ladies) who don’t need to return to the Angle Period, a time when ladies had been too typically objectified and used for reasonable warmth (bra and panties matches, anybody?).
On final night time’s airing of AEW Darkish, wrestler Max Caster reminded us all precisely how far wrestling has come however, in one other, extra correct manner, how far professional wrestling nonetheless has to go, even in an organization that has lauded and promoted their ladies’s division as extra inclusive than some other.
Caster, who often raps as a part of his character with the tag crew The Acclaimed, presumably thought saying this on the mic was a good suggestion:
“Hear, The Acclaimed kick ass for Miles
Making you declare psychological well being like Simone Biles
The Sydels goes to pay the price
I’m gonna deal with these bitches like Duke LaCrosse
The Blondes say they’re one of the best
However these dudes are faker than a PCR take a look at
And what’s that odor right here in North Carolina?
Oh wait, that’s Julia’s … (mic taken away)”
I do know, it’s arduous to imagine. Here’s the video:
For reference, “Julia” refers to Julia Hart, a 19-year outdated wrestler who has teamed up with the Varsity Blondes. Caster is 32.
Other than this rap not even being excellent (Simone Biles didn’t “declare” psychological well being, psychological well being is one thing everybody has — “poor” psychological well being would have been extra correct), Caster managed to disparage Biles, reference a gang rape case, go full-on anti-vaxxer, and drag the genitals of a 19-year outdated co-worker.
That is from the primary firm to have an overtly trans wrestler in Nyla Rose.
As of proper now, Caster stays on AEW’s roster, and we don’t know to what extent AEW was concerned on this script. And AEW didn’t reply to Deadspin’s request for remark..
