Backstage news regarding the future of The Viking Raiders’ Ivar now that his partner Erik is injured

During the October 2nd 2023 edition of WWE RAW, Wade Barrett stated on commentary that Erik (one half of the Viking Raiders tag team) was out injured “for the foreseeable future.” Erik’s partner Ivar lost a singles match to Xavier Woods on the show and will face Kofi Kingston this coming Monday in a “Viking Rules” match.

While the nature of his injury hasn’t been disclosed yet, Erik is expected to be gone for several months. In regards to Ivar’s future, Dave Meltzer of noted the following…

“The decision was made because Ray Rowe [Erik] is out after surgery, said to be for at least six months, is to push Ivar as a singles player. In the past when one member of a tag team that’s usually an exclusive team gets hurt, they’ve just not used the other much.”
