Paul Ellering comments on the Authors of Pain leaving him behind

The Authors of Pain made their way to the main roster last week, demolishing Heath Slater and Rhyno in the process. After the dominant performance, AOP left the ring but stopped their manager and mentor, Paul Ellering, from following them.

AOP told Ellering backstage that his chapter with them in NXT. It was rumored that the reasoning behind the split is due to the intense travel schedule that is required on the main roster. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case.

On Twitter, Paul Ellering told the WWE Universe that travel has nothing to do with this decision.

Could Ellering be scouting NXT for the next big team? Who would you like to see him lead to tag team glory?

    I think once HHH has full control the guys from NXT coming to the main roster will be better. Vince Mac just don’t know how to use some of these new stars were HHH will let them be themselves.

    To be honest I get why WWE removed him, I just think it is too soon. How many times have we seen talent and/or gimmicks go over huge on NXT and totally flop on the main roster? Just because it works in NXT does not mean it will work in WWE.
    By that means I think they should have at least given Ellering a couple of weeks or months on the main roster before they ditched him, as basically they are now leaving two guys to their own devices on the main roster who have had Ellering helping them get over for ages. There is a reason why some wrestlers have managers (Brock Lesnar for instance), as without them they will either flounder or be very one dimensional.

    Hopefully for their sake they can stand on their own feet on the main roster.
