The Authors of Pain def. local competitors
ORLANDO, Fla. — As TakeOver: The End of The Beginning came to a close, a new chapter in NXT began. NXT’s new start kicked on in a painful manner. Just one week removed from their destructive arrival in NXT, The Authors of Pain made their in-ring debut. Led to the ring by WWE Hall of Famer Paul Ellering, the two as-of-yet unnamed behemoths laid waste to the poor saps standing across the ring from them. Much like they did to American Alpha at TakeOver, The Authors of Pain demolished their opponents before nearly taking one’s head off with a Russian leg sweep/clothesline combination to earn the victory.
Ellering and the Authors were found backstage by Andrea D’Marco, but the Hall of Famer was unwilling to give up any information about his massive charges.
