The Viking Raiders showed up once again on RAW this week and it looks like they’re going to get a renewed focus. They squashed an enhancement team to put themselves over which is customary for acts WWE wants to push.
The identity of the poor souls that Erik and Ivar smashed last night are Russ and Ryan Taylor. They took a beating, but this is nothing new for them.
In fact, this was apparently Ryan Taylor’s 3rd match in WWE. It’s been a long time since he appeared on WWE television though as he last competed in May 2009 during an episode of ECW. He also lost to the Big Show in an I Quit match in 2008.
The Viking Raiders came off looking very good and they won their match quickly. Therefore, the enhancement talent played their part well.
Hopefully, WWE has a lot more planned for Erik and Ivar. The fact that they took an extra second to stare down Daniel Bryan and Rowan as they made their way to the ring made things even more interesting.
