The Viking Experience: Who Is Erik and Who Is Ivar?

War Machine/War Raiders Rowe and Hanson are now the Viking Experience’s Erik and Ivar.

Hanson is now known as Ivar and Rowe is now known as Erik. Both names are likely references to famous Vikings in history. Erik is likely a reference to the Norse explorer Erik the Red. Ivar could be a reference to “Ivar the Boneless” a Viking commander who is the son of Ragnar Lodbrook, the central figure in the History Channel’s show “Vikings.”
