Authors of Pain join WWE Raw roster

Another post-WWE Draft roster addition has been confirmed.

After they weren't selected on either night of this year's draft, WWE announced today that The Authors of Pain (Akam & Rezar) have joined the Raw roster. 

WWE began hyping the return of AOP on the September 16 episode of Raw. They haven't had a televised match since taking part in the battle royal at Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia this June. That match was the first time Akam had wrestled since undergoing knee surgery in January.

The Viking Raiders won the Raw Tag Team titles from Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode this Monday. Ziggler & Roode were then drafted to SmackDown.
