The Acclaimed's Max Caster and Anthony Bowens have formally challenged Tony Khan to a match at AEW's Full Gear pay-per-view on 13 November.
Caster tweeted out the challenge following a post-show segment from this past weekend's episode of Dynamite. There, Khan sent out CM Punk and others to deal with the heel tag-team once the cameras had stopped rolling.
That led to the tag match tease.
The Acclaimed vs. Khan and CM Punk sounds like something from a fever dream. Could it actually happen, or is Caster just playing around with fans? Some replies on Twitter claimed that it's only a matter of time before Tony pulls on some boots for a match in AEW anyway.
Others...well, others think it'd be a huge mistake for Khan to put himself in the spotlight like so many other wrestling authority figures have done over the years.
Of course, there is a chance that The Acclaimed are just mucking about and free-styling on social media. If so, then a laugh's a laugh, but some are already taking it seriously. 2021 could be about to get even weirder.
Watch this space.
