Anthony Bowens Reveals He Would Love To Become AEW’s First Gay World Champion

One-third of the reigning AEW World Trios Champion Anthony Bowens recently spoke with Out Magazine on a number of topics such as how as much as he hopes that The Acclaimed stays forever, he would love to become the company’s first gay World Champion.

Anthony Bowens said:

“As much as I hope The Acclaimed, the tag team I’m a part of, stays forever, I would love to become AEW’s first gay World Champion. I got the Tag Team titles checked off the list, but there hasn’t been a gay World Champion. I would also like to be a Grand Slam champion, too, which is where you win every title once,” Bowens told Out Magazine when asked about his goals in AEW.”

Anthony Bowens also spoke about how LGBTQ+ wrestlers don’t have to exist anymore being stereotypes or being the fodder in the story as they are now presented as credible athletes and champions.

Anthony Bowens said:

“Thankfully we don’t have to exist anymore being stereotypes or being the fodder in the story. We’re presented as credible athletes and champions like myself or [Nyla Rose]. Wrestling has come a long way with the presentation of queer athletes, which is why I’m particularly happy I’m signed to [All Elite Wrestling]. Tony Khan and the company allow us to be us and whatever that may be, whether it’s Sonny Kiss, who is genderfluid, or Nyla Rose, or myself who now has straight people scissoring each other (laughs). I don’t ever have to worry about upper management trying to change me or direct me to be a certain way. Hopefully, wrestling continues to move in that direction. The independent circuit is doing great because now, there are so many LGBTQ+ wrestlers. It’s come a very long way and I’m excited to see where it continues to go.”
