Quote Aleister Black, Ricochet, Hawkins & Ryder vs. The Revival & The Viking Experience:The Viking Experience is the team formerly known as the War Raiders. Cole says their names are Ybarr and Eric. Dawson and Hawkins start off trading holds. Ricochet tags in and then Black tags in for the double team on Dawson. Ricochet and Wilder are in now, and then the aprons clear and everyone brawls in the ring. Ricochet, Black, Hawkins and Ryder dump all their opponents out to ringside and stand tall in the ring. Back in the ring, Ryder fires up and connects with several kicks on Dawson, then they fight out to ringside. Back in the ring, the aprons clear and everyone knocks each other out to ringside one by one. Back in the ring, The Viking Experience double teams Hawkins and tosses him outside on to Ricochet and Black on the floor. The Viking Experience double teams Ryder now for the three count.
 Winners: The Viking Experience & The Revival

I don't get the name change. Anyone brought up from NXT should be called the same thing people have always known them as.

I'm surprised they have been called up so soon because they only spent a year in NXT.

Rowe will be hoping his wife doesn't get switched tonight so he can see her regularly and travel with her.

Stupidest fucking name ive ever seen

Everything about War Raiders made sense

The crowd even chanted War during their entrance in NXT

Great tag team but awful name

A report suggested that another name discussed was the Berserkers, this would have been a much better choice, it keeps in with the Viking theme and pays homage to John Nord. Perhaps they will change the name due to the negative reaction to the Viking Experience.

I mentioned the Berserkers too. I would have been totally fine with that name.

They've changed it to the Viking Raiders which I guess is a improvement. It was the use of Experience in the name that people hated made them sound like a game show or a store where you buy Viking memorabilia. 

I think the main reason behind the name change was in today's WWE they cant really have the word War so prominently used in a gimmick.

Quote The Viking Raiders vs. Lucha House Party: Ivar and Erik attack all three House Party members before the opening bell. Erik picks up one House Party member in the fallaway slam position, and another above him in the powerbomb position, and he slams them both down. The Raiders then double team Lince Dorado and leave. We go to replays, and this one is over before it ever began.
 Winners: No contest

The name change is much better as it's not a big change on their NXT name and plays up to where they are from.

Experience should never be in a wrestling name as it sounds like a meet and greet. Come to our Dr Who experience where you can have a photo with a past doctor and meet the phone box.

Funniest thing was Curt Hawkins backstage saying how they went beserk on Lucha House Party which was a nice old school reference to how much they look like Berzerker.

I'm starting to get bored of these squashing random jobbers week in week out, they need to become more of a part of the tag division and go against some of the more established teams

I keep hearing rumours that Vince hates them, not sure if theres any substance to these rumours especially as they are still getting squash match victories each week.

But they do need to start working some real matches, these preliminary matches do become boring and repetitive fast and I've skipped over a few of them while watching Raw.

If Ziggler/Roode win the tag belts the Viking Raiders would be good first challengers for them.
