Fightful Select confirmed that WWE began discussing the return of Authors of Pain among its ranks. The team of Akam and Rezar could return to their roots in the yellow brand, as the creative team is also thinking about the return of Paul Ellering.

Following their reigns as NXT and RAW Tag Team Champions, Akam and Rezar were fired from WWE on September 4, 2020. Since then, Authors of Pain have not contested a single match. His return to action was to take place in the Wrestling Entertainment Series, a company founded by both in 2021 and which failed to hold its inaugural event in the United Kingdom.
