AOP Released by WWE

WWE has released the Authors of Pain, Akam and Rezar.

A statement on WWE’s website said, “WWE has come to terms on the release of Akam and Rezar (AOP). We wish them all the best in their future endeavors.”

The team, which was most recently part of Seth Rollins’ stable, has been off of TV since March when Rezar suffered a torn biceps. Previously, Akam suffered a knee injury in January 2019, which kept the team out until September 2019.

The Authors of Pain debuted in NXT in June 2016 and on the main roster in April 2018. They’re former NXT Tag Team Champions and Raw Tag Team Champions.
