Anthony Bowens Injured, Undergoes Knee “Procedure”

Anthony Bowens of The Acclaimed posted a photo Friday night on Twitter in a hospital bed saying that he had to undergo a “knee procedure” this week.

He appears to be legitimately injured, but blamed it on a storyline attack that happened after AEW Dark: Elevation. Footage on Rampage tonight showed the Acclaimed walking backstage with the Gunn Club, then Bowens being attacked and going down screaming. It wasn’t shown or explained who attacked him. In a backstage promo on Rampage, Billy Gunn acknowledged Bowens’ injury and said that the Gunn Club and Max Caster look forward to his eventual return.

Bowens missed about 10 weeks with a knee injury from February-April 2021.

It’s unclear how much time he may miss this time.
