It seems like one of the biggest mysteries in NXT will forever go unsolved: What was Paul Ellering’s role in the Authors of Pain? Sure he’s their manager, but if they wrote the “Book of Pain” then was he their publicist? Their editor? Ghost writer, perhaps? It seems like a very WWE thing to strip the Authors of their manager upon being called up to the main roster, but I hope we still see him working on the unofficial sequel to the Book of Pain in NXT with someone else.
