The Viking Raiders, Erik & Ivar, are bent on world domination.
The powerful alliance made strides toward that goal for years, decimating tag team competition around the globe, from the U.K. to Japan. In early 2018, the bruising brawlers turned their focus to the NXT Tag Team division, much to the detriment of every other duo on the black-and-yellow brand. Their arrival was explosive: Erik & Ivar ambushed Heavy Machinery and Riddick Moss & Tino Sabbatelli in an amazing display of force.
Looking like warriors ready to plunder an unsuspecting village, Erik & Ivar possess an in-ring ferocity that matches their fearsome appearance. Erik boasts incredible power, the perfect complement to Ivar's surprising speed and agility. With years of experience teaming together, The Viking Raiders have also perfected their tag-team craft, resulting in one of WWE’s most well-honed tandem arsenals.
After going undefeated for several months on Raw, Erik & Ivar captured the Raw Tag Team Titles in a thorough thrashing of Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode.
On their quest to prove they were the most dominant force on Raw, The Viking Raiders found themselves in an "anything you can do, I can do better" series of competitions against The Street Profits after WrestleMania 36, revealing a different side and set of skills for Erik and Ivar.
All other tag teams better beware.
