The Viking Raiders are next in line for a shot at AJ Styles & Omos' Raw Tag Team titles.

The Viking Raiders (Erik & Ivar) won a tag team battle royal on tonight's episode of Raw to become the number one contenders to Styles & Omos' titles. WWE hasn't announced when The Viking Raiders will be getting their title shot.

The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods), RK-Bro (Randy Orton & Riddle), Mace & T-Bar, Lince Dorado, and John Morrison also took part in tonight's battle royal. Dorado and Morrison were representing their teams on their own. Morrison's tag team partner The Miz is out of action due to injury, and it was said tonight that Dorado's partner Gran Metalik is injured as well.

Both members of The Viking Raiders, Orton, and Kingston were the final four wrestlers in the battle royal. Riddle, who had already been eliminated by Woods, came back into the ring and stepped in the way when Kingston went to hit Trouble in Paradise on Orton. Kingston hit the move on Riddle instead -- and Orton capitalized on that by eliminating Kingston. But The Viking Raiders then threw Orton out of the ring to win the battle royal.

Styles & Omos defeated Kingston & Woods at WrestleMania 37 this April to win the Raw Tag Team titles.

The Viking Raiders returned to tag team action on the post-WrestleMania 37 episode of Raw, teaming together for the first time since Ivar had to undergo neck surgery last September.
