It looks like somebody important in Stamford came to the realization that the name The Viking Experience was pretty stupid for a tag team.
The War Raiders, the current NXT Tag Team champions who were drafted to Monday Night Raw last week, received the not-so-impressive name for their Raw debut. The change was met with a lot of criticism online and led to tons of memes mocking the name.
But now, just a week after getting christened with the new name, The Viking Experience is no longer, although a part of their name remains. From now on, the duo will be known as The Viking Raiders, a combo of their old and new name. They do keep their new individual names of Ivar and Erik though, a change from Hanson and Rowe.
But you know how the saying goes right? You can’t get everything in life!
