The Viking Warriors appeared on RAW this week, but if you blinked you might have missed them. They are being pushed as a top tag team, but first the company is feeding them a slew of enhancement talents to get the job done.
Erik and Ivar are obviously going places with WWE. The biggest question is how long WWE will continue to pair them up with opponents that give them no problem whatsoever. This week they had two local talents to squash and now we know who they were.
Vinny Gruner and Jackson James were played by VsK and Jack Tomlinson last night. They are both from Create A Pro Wrestling Academy. Those two got the special honor of being The Viking Warriors’ crash test dummies last night. Thankfully, they were able to walk out of the contest in one piece.
WWE needs to put enhancement talent in front of certain performers to elevate them. Apparently, the company feels that fans still need convincing that The Viking Warriors mean serious business. At least they’re making it on television as they prepare for whatever is next for them in WWE.
