The Viking Raiders are back in NXT.
2019 was the last time The Viking Raiders (Ivar & Erik) were featured on NXT programming. The former NXT Tag Team Champions made their return to the brand on tonight’s episode of NXT 2.0.
They scored a win over Edris Enofe and Malik Blade but prior to the match, they came face-to-face with The Creed Brothers (Julius & Brutus Creed). Ivar and Erik’s return to NXT to face off with The Creeds was ‘orchestrated’ by Diamond Mine’s own Roderick Strong.

Ivar and Erik are a part of the SmackDown roster and fellow SmackDown talent Natalya appeared on tonight’s show as well.
Over the weekend, The Viking Raiders wrestled The Usos (Jimmy & Jey Uso) for the SmackDown Tag Titles at house shows. Their last televised match was on the 3/28 Monday Night Raw.
