Former WWE tag team could be returning to the company in 2023

In 2022, several former WWE stars were brought back to the company under the Triple H regime. More wrestlers could end up be brought back to WWE in the new year as Fightful Select reports that the Authors of Pain (Akam and Rezar) have been discussed for a potential return to the company. According to Fightful, AOP’s former manager Paul Ellering could also be returning with the team and the outlet noted the following about him…

“The duo remained close with Ellering, and got his blessing to name themselves Legion of Pain outside WWE. There were originally rumors Ellering didn’t want to do the main roster travel, which he’s refuted.”

Several months after Rezar suffered a biceps injury, AOP were released from WWE in September of 2020. The team had a prior injury setback in January of 2019 when Akam underwent knee surgery.
