Wrestling fans everywhere are in to scissoring, and it’s all thanks to The Acclaimed (I promise – that isn’t what it sounds like).

Anthony Bowens and Max Caster, known together as The Acclaimed, are the current AEW Tag Team Champions, and their gimmick has gotten over huge with wrestling audiences. As Bowens often notes during the pair’s introduction, everyone loves The Acclaimed.

Bowens recently spoke with The Atlantic for an interview and revealed that the popular duo were asked at one point not to “scissor” with one another.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

What it’s like to work with Billy Gunn: “It’s been huge. He was part of one of the best tag teams in professional wrestling back in the day. So much knowledge, so smart. To be able to pick his brain and figure out a strategy for how we’re going to attack our opponents – he’s been an absolutely incredible resource, and he’s a legend. You can tell how much fun he’s having, and it’s fun to see.”

Did he think the “scissoring” gimmick would get over as much as it has: “Truthfully, no. We had no idea. We were originally asked to not do it at a point, but for whatever reason, we just started doing it again. There was this one time I was on the floor, and I looked up and fans — all of them — had their hands out with the scissor gesture, yelling for me to scissor them. So, we knew we had something after that. I think it’s turned into the biggest thing in professional wrestling right now. People can’t get enough of the scissoring. We’ll do meet-and-greets and other stuff, and for hours, every single person will come up and say, ‘Can we scissor you?’ It’s fantastic.”
