WWE has a lot of plans for the future, and this week’s episode of SmackDown will have a lot of attention on it. That being said, this is your official spoiler warning.

It was previously reported that Akam and Rezar are expected back in WWE very soon. Plans have been in place for their comeback, and Triple H took his time with things. That long wait for the Authors of Pain’s return may be over.

It was previously reported in January 2023 about WWE’s interest in AOP. We will have to see how much impact they can make.

AOP were secretly signed by WWE, and Akam and Rezar might be coming back. They also could be reuniting with someone who had a lot to do with their success the first time around.


PW Insider noted that, “WWE Hall of Famer Paul Ellering was spotted in Vancouver this morning.” It was further noted that Ellering is expected to be alongside AOP as they make their WWE return.

The expectation, as PWInsider.com reported previously several weeks ago, is that he and The Authors of Pain will return to WWE on tonight’s Smackdown as part of an alliance with Karrion Kross and Scarlett.

We will have to see what is next for WWE, because they have a ton of plans. AOP may just be in on those plans, and it could all start this week in Vancouver.

Ringside News will have complete coverage of WWE’s January 5th episode of SmackDown. You never know what will happen next, but we will be here with all the headlines you need.
