WWE legend John Cena noticed something shockingly similar the other night via his own social media reaction to Max Caster’s performance at AEW All Out this past weekend.
Caster and his partner Anthony Bowens in The Acclaimed went after Swerve In Our Glory for the AEW Tag Team Championships at the big pay-per-view event. While they may not have left with the gold, the match was a breakout performance for the young team, who impressed fans around the world.
One of the most high-profile names who was impressed by Caster was John Cena. John took a screenshot of the star in action as he was seen in the photo lifting Keith Lee for his version of the “Attitude Adjustment.”
The spot was extremely similar to Cena’s breakout performance against The Big Show (now known as Paul Wight in AEW) at WrestleMania 20 in 2004. Cena famously lifted up the “world’s largest athlete” during their match for the WWE United States Championship.
In the photo that John posted to his Instagram; he didn’t say anything in the caption. This has been taken two ways by fans thus far.
Some fans feel that it’s John pointing to AEW not coming up with their own ideas. This isn’t the first time Max Caster has featured on John Cena’s Instagram. While he might not have stated that he watches AEW TV on a weekly basis, John Cena certainly keeps up with what Max Caster and The Acclaimed are doing.
Cena posted a picture of Max Caster on his Instagram page on August 4th. This happened to be the day after The Acclaimed defeated The Gunn Club in a dumpster match on AEW Dynamite.
Before the match got started, Caster did his trademark rap on the way to the ring, where dropped a line regarding Vince McMahon retiring. He even name-dropped the former WWE CEO by name, to the surprise of everyone in the audience and at home.
