While discussing the recent main roster call ups to RAW & SmackDown, Mike Johnson revealed on PWInsider Elite Audio that it was WWE’s call for Paul Ellering not being called up to the main roster and it had nothing to do with travel issues, as Ellering previously stated.
“As far as the AOP/Ellering thing, why did they do that? It basically was that they wanted Authors of Pain on their own and it was a creative choice by people on the main roster. they want Paul Ellering down in NXT working with others to prepare them and groom them. It’s that simple. It had nothing to do with Ellering not wanting to go on the road. He would have done anything that WWE wanted. He was just someone that they didn’t want to be with Authors of Pain at this juncture.”
