Seth Rollins Pulled From Crown Jewel Match, AOP Gets Drafted


Seth Rollins won't be pulling double duty.

In an expected move, WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins will not be the captain of Team Hogan against Team Flair at the Crown Jewel PPV event. WWE Now on Thursday confirmed the news. 

The reason for him not pulling double duty is due to his rematch against Bray Wyatt for the Universal Championship with a Falls Count Anywhere stipulation at this same show. 

Rusev and Ricochet have been announced for Team Hogan while Randy Orton, Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley, and Shinsuke Nakamura have been confirmed as part of Team Flair.

AOP Drafted to ARW

In this same video, it was confirmed that former WWE NXT Tag Team Champions the Authors of Pain will be exclusive to the RAW brand as they were drafted to the roster. 

This comes after they have been doing vignettes on Monday Night RAW about returning to action and sending a warning to the rest of the tag team division. 

After Akem underwent knee surgery in January, the tag team has been hiatus for most of the year. While they did work the 51-Man Battle Royal at the Super Showdown pay-per-view event, they’ve been used sparingly at house shows.
