WWE News: Update On The Authors Of Pain’s Whereabouts

Published

on

Since being called up to the WWE’s main roster as a part of the Monday Night RAW brand the night after WrestleMania 34 on April 9th, Akam and Rezar, collectively known as The Authors Of Pain, have been very seldom seen.

The last time we saw the former NXT Tag Team Champions was on May 16th episode of WWE Main Event in a victory over Titus O’Neil and Apollo Crews. Recently, there were reports that WWE didn’t have anything lined up on television for The Authors Of Pain, which is why they haven’t been used much since making the jump to the red brand. Today however, it appears there’s a little more to the story.

According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, one member of The Authors Of Pain has been having issues with his work visa, contributing to their lack of use. Additionally, it’s being said that the issue has been resolved, but WWE still does not have anything for them at the moment as they focus on pushing The B-Team (Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel) along with the team of Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre. It was also noted that WWE doesn’t want The Authors Of Pain to be “just another team”, which is why they’ve been held off despite the visa issues being rectified. It’s expected that Akam and Rezar will return to television when more focus can be put on the tandem.

EA’s Take: I don’t really have a whole lot to say about this outside of the obvious question, why did you even bring them up in the first place? Get Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre out of the Tag Team Division, there’s zero reason for them to be in there and you can still push them as a pairing like I’ve called for a la Shawn Michaels and Diesel. This is just proof that long-term planning in WWE is lost.

AXS TV Denies Being Involved With Reported Upstart Promotion

Published

on

As we noted earlier, a new report has surfaced today stating that current IWGP Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho has been working with WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross on starting a new wrestling promotion with Barry Bloom and backed by Jacksonville Jaguars’ Owner Shad Khan (see the whole story here).

It was said that AXS TV, who currently is the home to New Japan Pro Wrestling and the upcoming WOW-Women Of Wrestling in January, was already in talks with the promotion and an executive was working to “fast track” a deal. The promotion which reportedly already has Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks and Hangman Page on board, was reportedly eyeing a late-2019/early-2020 broadcast date.

Now, WrestlingInc is reporting that after speaking with a representative from AXS TV about the project, they replied with, “There’s no truth to the AXS TV component”. It was noted that they couldn’t confirm Chris Jericho or Jim Ross’ involvement, but AXS TV is said to be “very committed” to NJPW and has some big plans for them in 2019.

EA’s Take: All aboard the speculation train! So here’s what I find interesting; the AXS TV rep specifically said no truth to the “AXS TV component” and not necessarily the component that it’s actually legitimate that Jericho and JR are starting a company. A very interesting choice of words by that person that you can take any number of ways.
