Since making their main roster debuts this past April, The Authors Of Pain have only wrestled two matches on Monday Night RAW. They defeated Heath Slater and Rhyno on an April 9th RAW, and defeating Apollo Crews and Titus O’Neil on a May 14th episode of Main Event.

According to a report from John Pollack of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the team hasn’t been around because one of its members was having a visa issue. It turns out that issue has since been resolved and they’re being held off the show because currently the plan is to push The B Team and Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre.

WWE doesn’t want The Authors Of Pain to be just another tag team, so they plan on brining them back to TV when they can focus on pushing them and getting them over. It should be interesting to see what creative has planned for the former NXT Tag Team Champs upon their return.
