Speculation about Strowman and War Raiders name change
Submitted by Aaron Rift on 04/20/2019 at 11:10 AM

Mike Johnson of recently commented on Braun Strowman's current position in WWE:

“There have been times when Vince was ready to pull the trigger and then something happens behind the scenes just by the way Braun Strowman carries himself or maybe he’s a little late or just at times that he’s his own worst enemy with how he presents himself and Vince takes a step backward.”

“I just think he’s at the point now where Vince sees him as a walking mascot for the company more than he sees him as a top guy. So he’s kinda like a modern-day 911 for ECW vs being seen as a franchise player for the company.”

Johnson also commented on the War Raiders being renamed The Viking Experience:

“I don’t think they’ll let the [The Viking Experience] go as physically all-out as they usually do [in NXT].”

“I don’t understand the name change unless it was ‘We can’t have something with war in it on the main roster.’ Like that’s the only excuse.”

“The Vikings would be a very standard commonplace name. They need something unique that they can trademark. That’s not the way the company works, they like to have unique things.”
