Prior to The Acclaimed’s match with Sting and Darby Allin on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Max Caster made a reference to WWE’s recent statement about an AEW match that featured Tay Conti & Anna Jay vs. Penelope Ford vs. The Bunny being a “gory self-mutilation” bout that “bloodied several women”. For those unaware, a WWE spokesperson told the Toronto Sun the following just last week,
“If you look at the gory self-mutilation that bloodied several women on the December 31 event on TNT, it quickly becomes clear that these are very different businesses. We had an edgier product in the ‘Attitude’ era and in a 2022 world, we don’t believe that type of dangerous and brutal display is appealing to network partners, sponsors, venues, children, or the general public as a whole.”
As Max Caster came to the ring, he rapped the following lyrics,
“The Acclaimed beating that ass if you’re hating/Fighting with us is gory self-mutilation. Two grown men and they’re going through a goth phase/we’re black & white and we don’t even need facepaint!”
The Acclaimed wound up losing to Sting & Allin in the main event of Dynamite.
