It appears that the Authors of Pain are no longer the “Authors of Pain.”
As seen on WWE programming recently and on social media, WWE has been referring to the team simply as “AOP” instead of Authors of Pain. It remains unknown exactly why WWE made this change.
Vince McMahon is notorious for making changes of sorts like this. In the past for example, Vince made the call to has shorten talents names such as Neville, Big E Langston and several others.
