The Viking Experience get new tag team name

A week after they debuted on the main roster as The Viking Experience, it appears that the former War Raiders have a new tag team name.

The NXT Tag Team Champions are now being called The Viking Raiders on WWE.com. The name is a mix of their old NXT name and the name they used when they joined Raw in the Superstar Shake-up last week.

The Viking Raiders are still listed individually as Ivar (formerly known as Hanson) & Erik (Rowe).

On last week's Raw, Ivar & Erik teamed with The Revival to defeat Zack Ryder, Curt Hawkins, Ricochet & Aleister Black in an eight-man tag match. Ryder & Hawkins are the current Raw Tag Team Champions, and Ivar & Erik hit Fallout on Ryder to get the win.

Black, Andrade, and Zelina Vega were initially announced as joining Raw in the Superstar Shake-up but are now moving to SmackDown. Cesaro is joining the Raw roster.
