In addition to the surprise returns of Rusev and Kane, tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw saw a comeback of former Raw Tag Team Champions AOP.
Outside of a brief appearance in a 50-man battle royale in Saudi Arabia, Akam and Razar haven’t been seen on WWE television since last December, shortly after losing the titles.
In a surprise vignette, AOP addressed the WWE Universe with some notable changes to their gimmick. Both stars were allowed to do the promo in their own native languages, and along with some new fancy Bond villain suits, they also made reference to their full name – the Authors of Pain.
Looks like Drake Maverick won’t have anything to do with them going forward, as he’s clearly busy with his eternal chase for the WWE 24/7 Championship, and occasionally managing the 205 Live brand.
