Ever since The Authors Of Pain lost the NXT Tag Team Championship, people have been speculating about their future and it appears that they might be debuting on the Main Roster soon.
During the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that there have been talks of bringing the former Champions to the main roster and they can join the SmackDown Live Brand.
Authors of Pain first appeared on WWE Programming during the NXT Takeover: The End back in June 2016 where they attacked American Alpha after their match.
The duo has an impressive record in the development territory. They have won the 2016 edition of Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Tournament and the NXT Tag Team Championships once as well.
The team of Akam and Rezar recently lost the NXT Tag titles to Sanity during NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III which originally started the speculations that they may get called up.
The fact that the duo hasn’t appeared on NXT since losing the tag titles only strengthened these rumors and after Meltzer’s comments, it appears that we may see them debuting on the Main Roster soon.
Though the exact plans for their debut are not known, so it’s hard to say when or where the former Champions will make their first main roster appearance.
