It’s a different job. Managers have been around wrestling for decades and they have long since served an important purpose. A manager often serves as a wrestler’s mouthpiece and gets the fans to care about him more than the wrestler can make happen on their own. Occasionally an on-screen manager has some off-screen responsibilities and now a former WWE manager might be helping some old clients.

Could be Worse: Update On Montez Ford’s Health After WWE Elimination Chamber

Earlier this year, reports surfaced saying that WWE had an interest in bringing the Authors of Pain back to the company. According to Fightful Select, the team has a strong sense of loyalty to their former manager Paul Ellering, who would actually be negotiating any possible return. Ellering managed the team in NXT but they were split when the team debuted on Monday Night Raw.

The team was quite the force. Check out some of their time in WWE:

Opinion: That’s a unique situation but it is cool to see the team having such a connection to that kind of a wrestling legend. Ellering helped run the careers of the Road Warriors so he certainly has the history of making something like this work. I could go for having the team back as they are some rather strong monsters, which is a trope that will always work well in a tag division.

What do you think of the team? Do you want them back in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
