Original Name For War Raiders

We noted before how NXT’s War Raiders were renamed to ‘The Viking Experience’ for their Raw debut, a name which has attracted a lot of criticism in the last few days.

Though latest report reveals that this wasn’t the first choice for their name and according to Pwinsider, WWE was originally planning to name them ‘The Berzerkers’ for their move to the main roster.

No word yet on why the company decided to drop this name and went with the Viking Experience instead but it was noted that this call was made by Vince McMahon.

This week’s episode of SmackDown Live saw Roman Reigns returning to the show and joining the Blue Brand for the first time since the reintroduction of Brand Split.

Roman commented on this switch via a tweet saying that SmackDown is his new yard and the WWE Champion Kofi Kingston reacted to this with a thinking emoji:

This week’s episode of the show makes it seem like Reigns will be engaging in a rivalry with Elias in near future while there is no word yet on who will be challenging Kofi Kingston for his title.
