WWE supposedly signed the AOP in August 2022. They were on the company's internal travel list as of May 2023, but have not appeared since signing the promotion pact. The promotion was hoping to reintroduce them to NXT, but it never happened. The reason why the WWE did not deploy the tag team despite contracting them remains unknown.
