The Viking Raiders return to action on WWE Raw


Raw's tag team division got a boost with The Viking Raiders (Ivar & Erik) making their return on the Raw after WrestleMania 37.

In their return match, The Viking Raiders defeated Shelton Benjamin & Cedric Alexander tonight. The Viking Raiders got the win after hitting their double-team Viking Experience finisher on Alexander.

This was the first time Ivar has wrestled since September of last year. On the September 7 episode of Raw, Ivar suffered a cervical injury during an eight-man tag match where The Viking Raiders, Ricochet & Apollo Crews faced Benjamin, Alexander, MVP & Bobby Lashley. Ivar was injured when hitting a suicide dive to the outside during the match.

After suffering the cervical injury, Ivar underwent neck surgery later that month.

Erik was one of the entrants in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal on the WrestleMania edition of SmackDown last Friday.

During their WWE careers, The Viking Raiders have held the Raw Tag Team titles and the NXT Tag Team titles one time each. AJ Styles & Omos are the current Raw Tag Team Champions. They won the titles from The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods) at WrestleMania 37 night one on Saturday. Omos was making his televised WWE in-ring debut in that match.
