AEW star recovering from “what is hopefully a short-term knee injury”

During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, AEW President Tony Khan revealed that Anthony Bowens of The Acclaimed has been dealing with a knee injury…

“I really like Anthony a great deal. He’s been injured. We don’t think it’s anything too long-term, but the truth is, he was supposed to be back by now and that’s jammed me up the last couple weeks in planning. He’s been out almost a month and they originally thought it was going to be two weeks. It’s been a few weeks I’ve been looking forward to bringing him back. He’s recovering from what is hopefully a short-term knee injury.” (quote courtesy of

Bowens last competed during the March 9th 2022 edition of AEW Dynamite when him and Max Caster lost to the AEW tag team champions Jurassic Express.
