Meltzer explained that the injury is the reason AOP hasn't been used on TV in recent weeks, and Akam is expected to be out for at least a few months.
Akam's last television match with The Authors of Pain was on the December 17, 2018 episode of WWE RAW, losing a Fatal-4-Way tag team match to The Revival's Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder. They would compete in a handful of WWE live events shortly after that, but remain off TV.
Along with their recent reign as the WWE RAW Tag Team Champions, AOP has also held the NXT Tag Team Championships once and won the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic in 2016.
