She feels more free this go-round. 

The trio of Ivar, Erik and Valhalla are known as The Viking Raiders. As of this writing, Erik is sidelined after undergoing neck surgery so Valhalla and Ivar are the representatives of the group on-screen. 

In November 2022, Valhalla returned to WWE on a full-time basis and this go-round was described as operating in a creative space that’s free. She gave that description to ComicBook Nation. Valhalla added that when she was Sarah Logan, she was confused creatively. 

Yeah, in so many aspects (this current WWE run is different from my first). Where I was in my life, who I am as a person, where I’m at creatively. I literally showed up as Valhalla with the antlers and the furs and the paint and Hunter was like, ‘Great!’ So, what you see on TV with our characters and even our promos, writing a Viking promo is hard so we write them. The writers will be like, ‘We kind of want to talk about this’ and we’ll be like, ‘Sweet. We got it’ so, I have found myself in a creative space in WWE that’s pretty free. So it’s been an amazing journey creatively. I’m paired with my husband which is amazing so, we bring Cash (Valhalla & Erik’s child) on the road wherever we go and it has been very fulfilling and the fact that I have such a beautiful home to come to, I’m so blessed right now just with, you know… thank God for it every day but, it’s definitely something that I’m trying not to take for granted and I’m trying to kind of take it as slow as I can because the wrestling doesn’t last forever so I’m trying to take it in and be thankful and appreciative and selfless about it. But I’m definitely in a lot different creative space obviously than what I was as Sarah Logan. I was confused a lot of times as Sarah Logan. I’m like, ‘Am I a country thing?… Can I do this Viking thing?’ I can do it but not a lot… So the fact that I’m just like full send with the Viking stuff has been awesome.

She accompanies Ivar to the ring for his singles matches and his latest bout was on the 3/4 Raw against Sami Zayn.  Valhalla was last in action on the 2/19 Raw in a Battle Royal.
