The Final Testament is a villainous professional wrestling stable, consisting of leader Karrion Kross, Scarlett, Akam, Rezar, and Paul Ellering, who serves as the group's manager. They are all currently signed to WWE, where they perform on the Raw brand.


On the December 22, 2023 episode of SmackDown, Kross and Scarlett appeared in a vignette, stating that they have formed a new alliance, but without revealing the identities of their new associates.[1] On January 5, 2024 at SmackDown: New Year's Revolution, Kross, accompanied by Scarlett, attacked The Pride (Bobby Lashley and the Street Profits) alongside the Authors of Pain (AOP; Akam and Rezar) and Paul Ellering who officially made their return to WWE, confirming their alliance in the process.[2] At Night 2 of WrestleMania XL, the stable lost against The Pride in a Philadelphia Street Fight.[3] On the following episode of NXT, The Final Testament made their NXT return with AOP attacking Axiom and Nathan Frazer, who have just won the NXT Tag Team Championships from Baron Corbin and Bron Breakker.[4] At Night 2 of the 2024 WWE Draft, The Final Testament were drafted to the Raw brand.[5] At Week 2 of Spring Breakin', AOP failed to defeat Axiom and Frazer for the titles after interference from New Catch Republic.[6]
