Everyone loves The Acclaimed and The Acclaimed actually love Tony Khan.

Despite their rivalry on-screen and on social media, Max Caster and Anthony Bowens enjoy working for AEW President Tony Khan, with Bowens praising his boss while speaking to Phil Strum on Under The Ring.

"Tony Khan, as much as the Acclaimed hate him on screen, he's a fantastic boss. He actually cares about his performers and he always has enthusiastic energy. You want to give your all for him because he's so positive and passionate about the pro wrestling industry. I'm thankful I made the right choice to come to AEW. I'm not just saying that because he's my boss, that's truly how I feel," said Bowens.

The Acclaimed have been with AEW since Fall of 2020 and are still young in the world of wrestling compared to many veterans in the AEW locker room.

When asked who he gets advice from in the world of wrestling, Bowens said, "My trainer, Pat Buck, is someone I always relied on for pro wrestling information. He's a wrestling encyclopedia. In AEW, the veterans that have come in are so giving in terms of trying to help out the younger talents. I always pick FTR's mind, (CM) Punk, Bryan (Danielson) from time to time when he's not busy. You pretty much have access to anything and anyone in AEW to try and get better and increase your knowledge of professional wrestling, which is pretty cool and a good asset to have. I can't believe I'm able to do that. I can literally walk around and ask some of these people anything."

Buck recently joined AEW as a backstage producer after leaving WWE.

Bowens hasn't wrestled since March 9 and is currently sidelined with a knee injury. He has remained on television, cornering Max Caster for his matches.
