The Viking Raiders appeared on tonight’s NXT, and will be taking part in next week’s NXT Spring Breakin’ event.
In a backstage segment, Roderick Strong confronted the rest of Diamond Mine, specifically pointing out The Creed Brothers’ recent losses. Strong told the Creed Brothers that he lined up a match for them at next week’s Spring Breakin’. The Viking Raiders then emerged, with the two teams coming face-to-face. The Viking Raiders later wrestled on the show, defeating Edris Enofe and Malik Blade.
Under the name War Raiders, The Viking Raiders appeared on NXT in 2018 and won the NXT Tag Team Championship on one occasion. The duo were called up the following year under the name The Viking Experience, which was later modified to The Viking Raiders.
Since being called to the main roster, they have won the Raw Tag Team titles once. As part of the 2021 WWE Draft, they were moved to SmackDown. However, their most recent high-profile match was on the March 28 episode of Raw where they lost to Omos in a handicap match.
