Kurt Angle Sees Great Potential In The Parternship Between Seth Rollins & Authors Of Pain
One of the best things on Monday Night RAW at the moment is the partnership of Seth Rollins with The Authors of Pain. Seth Rollins just works best when he can be a despicable heel. Then giving him two absolute brutes as backup is perfect. Their dynamic is perfect and they are set to wreck havoc on Monday Night RAW in 2020.
WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle Gives His Thoughts
Kurt Angle did a Facebook Q&A session recently, and one question he was asked was about the partnership of Rollins & Authors of Pain. He had the following to say. “Seth and AOP will have a hell of a run. These guys are animals. Seth made a very smart move teaming up with those guys. They will ALL win gold just like Team Angle in 2003”.
Team Angle consisted of Kurt Angle, Shelton Benjamin, and Charlie Haas. They were a dominant faction in 2003 on the Smackdown brand. While there are few parralels style wise between this new pairing and Team Angle, we could see a similar fate. Seth Rollins as WWE Champion and Authors of Pain as tag team champions. Letting them have control over the RAW locker room using fear and power, then having a few defiant babyfaces rise up to take them down could be the major angle of 2020.
Who Can Take Down Seth Rollins & Authors Of Pain?
Samoa Joe has already started with warpath against this new faction, but even the Samoan Submission Machine can’t handle them on his own. While he can easily dispose of Seth Rollins if he gets him alone, he needs backup to deal with Authors of Pain. He could enlist the help of the current RAW Tag Team Champions in War Raiders. They are the only team who matches up physically to Authors of Pain.
Kevin Owens & Rey Mysterio also have a bone to pick with Rollins & AOP. Both have been viciously beaten down by the new trio. I see Samoa Joe, KO, and Rey being a more temporary alliance, perhaps one that will face them at the Royal Rumble.
He could also enlist the help of two rising stars in Aleister Black & Buddy Murphy. They have been having an excellent series of matches as they earn each others respect. While they don’t match up size wise to the Authors of Pain, Black has taken out bigger men with his Black Mass kick, and Buddy Murphy is no slouch either. It could be a very fun angle that would put the spotlight on some relatively fresh faces on Monday Night RAW.
