Paul Ellering Kills Rumor on Splitting From Authors of Pain, WWE & NXT Stars Respond to Nixon Newell’s Return


Paul Ellering on Recent AoP Split

As noted, legendary wrestling manager Paul Ellering seems to have split from The Authors of Pain after the former NXT Tag Team Champions debuted on Monday Night RAW this past week. One rumor floating around was that at 64-years-old, the Hall of Famer didn’t want to work a full-time WWE schedule with all the traveling that comes with being on the main roster, but Ellering seems to have squashed that idea on Twitter.

WWE Stars on Nixon Newell’s Return

As previously reported, Nixon Newell finally made her debut with NXT at a live event this Friday after being out of action for nearly a full year with an ACL injury.

It seems the other ladies of WWE are extremely happy to have the 23-year-old UK star back in action, which makes sense given that she’s competed all around the world with pretty much every notable name in the women’s division today. Dakota Kai, Ruby Riott and even Kairi Sane, who once faced Newell in a great 16-minute match for the Stardom promotion in Japan, all took to Twitter to welcome her back.
