Following Max Caster’s controversial rap that took place on the August 3rd, 2021 episode of AEW Dark and led to his suspension from All Elite Wrestling, AEW commentator Tony Schiavone has confirmed that all of Caster’s entrance raps now need to be pre-approved by AEW President Tony Khan.
For those who may not recall, Caster made references to Olympian Simone Biles’ mental health, the Duke Lacrosse rape accusations, and more on that particular episode of AEW Dark. You can check out a video of his original rap below.
During a recent appearance on “The Rob Brown Show”, Schiavone commented on Caster’s raps and what the process is like now.
When Schiavone was asked if MJF and/or Max Caster have ever made him nervous while holding a live microphone, he said,
“With MJF, I am, because he has a tendency to be out of line. Max Caster, no, because that’s pretty much been put under wraps. Tony (Khan) has to approve what the rap is now. That’s burned him. I don’t know what he said one time, I can’t remember exactly what he said, but he got suspended because of a rap one time.
“MJF is like, well he’s out of his mind. They were chanting one night about his religion, being Jewish, and he said something about Jesus Christ. When he said it, I remember thinking, ‘He is out of his freaking mind.’ I went backstage and I went, ‘why would you say something like that?’ He said, ‘Did you hear what they were chanting about me and my religion?’ ‘Yeah, but stop.’ He concerns me.”
