Sorry guys, I think this one might by my fault. Remember this gem from one of my NXT threads just over a year ago:
Match Rating: You Know What Would Be Better Names Than War
Raiders? War Makers, War Maniacs, War Starters, War Hogs,
War Party, Warriors, Viking Warriors, WarGonauts, Or WAR.
I think somebody saw that and wanted to teach me a lesson. The Viking Experience is a ride at Epcot Center. The Viking Experience is an overpriced luxury camping package sold to you by a disingenuous travel agent. The Viking Experience is a metal band that opens for the band you actually came to see, and man, would they just stop playing already.

You know what would be better names than The Viking Experience?

Literally anything.

What'd you guys think of that all-time bad RAW?

That was the WORST. Couldn't believe my ears when I heard those names and team name announced.

Best reaction:



If they *really* wanted to punish you, they would have made use of Johnny Garbanzo and Toyota Camry.

Much like Dolph Ziggler's brown hair, they can change it back next week.

I'm pretty sure The Viking Experience is a LARP I tried in high school.

But seriously, from the time I have been "person who reads about wrestling on the internet," people have been saying Vince needs to go. But maybe it really is time? When do Stephanie and Shane have to take him aside and tell him he's losing it?
This RAW wasn't bad, it was baffling. I still don't know who is on what show, and last night it seemed like the announce team and the talent didn't either. Is this what happens without a continuity supervisor? Is this what happens without Road Dogg and Archibald Peck? Did someone see that while long, Wrestlemania was overall pretty enjoyable and have to put and end to that?

On the other hand, if on SmackDown we get a debuting Johnny Garbanzo and Toyota Camry, all will be forgiven.

Supposedly the War Raiders got their name changed on the main roster because Vince doesn’t want anyone to have “war” in their name.

While that would certainly explain changing the name "War Raiders," it can in no way excuse the selection of "Viking Experience." The Viking Experience is a sub-par European river cruise. Berserkers is right there. Heck, I'd take either one of Viking Machine or Viking Raiders. The Viking Experience is a tabletop RPG that TSR refused to publish.

Liv Morgan moved to SD! so I guess the Riott Squad was split up...so maybe Sarah Logan joins up with her husband? "The Viking Experience" sounds marginally better as the name of a faction instead of a tag team.

When I heard their music play and saw “The Viking Experience” on the Tron, I just assumed that was a slogan. Kinda like how Seth Rollins’ says “Beast Slayer”.

I don’t particularly have an issue with changing the team name, or even their individual names (besides the terrible names they chose), but I hate the fact that they did it cold without any kind of introductory vignette because I spent the entire match trying to figure out which one was Erik and which one was Ivar.

I loved Cole's commentary about how people were talking about them from the moment they showed up -- "for a variety of reasons." lol. Nice inside nod to things.

Well, as my wife pointed out, the Viking Experience is the name of a Minnesota football fan's Angelfire site, so it's refreshing to see some course correction there. And I'm pretty okay with Viking Experience as the name of a finisher, rather than a team.

Overall, the "Superstar Shakeup" is extremely confusing, and almost amazingly ill-thought-out. How many more guys are going to get shuffled around this week, do you think? Does Ricochet join Black on SD? Does somebody realize there's no longer any sort of women's division on RAW? Are there like, 13 guys who work there and nobody remembered to assign them to either roster? That last one seems the most likely.

Really, I desperately need them to figure out what they're doing so that some more guys can get added to 205 Live, and I know that's not happening until they've decided who all's not important enough for RAW or SD. I'm personally hoping for Tyler Breeze.

But at least I don't have to worry about a team being named after a self help book you'd find on the 20% off rack at Barnes and Noble.
