NO!

No got-dang way! "War Raiders", just didn't really mean much..."Viking Experience", isn't really a tag team name at all....and...

"Viking Raiders"???!?!

What is this? Vince McMahon likes Minnesota Vikings AND Oakland Raiders BOTH equally, so he couldn't decide?

Really though, Viking Raiders...just don't go together...plus it's kind of somewhat redundant...

I definitely agree with this. There is definitely something about it that feels very dry.

It takes too long to get out in a heated or important moment, for the love of Pete!

Now they’ve called their finishing move the Viking Experience just so Cole can shout it out in his annoying tone.

Viking Raiders is dry. Are they Vikings who raid? Are they guys who raid Vikings? It’s just a bit shit.
Have A Nice Day!

They are Vikings who raid. If they were guys who raid Vikings it would be "Viking-Raiders."

Don't Vikings ALWAYS raid anyways though?!? Redundant, as I said.

Thankfully WWE likes to drop halves of names. At this point I could live with The Vikings or The Raiders, but I am so far and beyond over them and this shit. These assholes have an entire subdivision of their company called CREATIVE, people that get paid to BE CREATIVE, and this is what they come up with for a team that should be a HUGE deal.

It sounds stupid. They look stupid. But hey, at least we're talking about them right?

Raiding is something I do to my cupboard for snacks. It's something fraternities did to sororities' underwear drawers in hilarious 80's movies. It's the name of a hilariously bad football team out in California. It's stupid, it sucks, and I hate it.

Wikipedia tells me that one of Ivar's aliases was Warbeard Hanson. I could settle for half of that. Doesn't infringe on any copyrights... sounds cool...

"The Hansons"

Yeah since The Vikings and The Raiders were already taken they said "alright then! We'll have both!!!!".

you just wait for next year's superbowl between Minnesota Vikings and Canberra Raiders (let's be realistic, that's more credible than the Oakland raiders in a superbowl)

So was the idea that you can't be sayin' "War'? Nevermind maniacs like Mcintrye and Strowman sayin' they're gonna do all kinds of over the line things, on the show where it's essentially revolving around nothing but guys fightin' each other until one can literally no longer fight Anymore...

So does that mean no more War Games? Lol.

I don't think that was the reason at all. Ember Moon is the 'War Goddess'. This is just Vince not liking the name one day and wanting to change it

Right, Vince didn't like the name, but nobody ever came out and said why.

As much as I'm bitching, I don't find it too far fetched that Vince doesn't want arenas full of fans chanting War! War! War!

Especially with the Saudi show coming up, I'm sure he's already gearing up for the next John Oliver report. Ember Moon's nickname is one thing, these guys use the word like R-Truth uses "What's Up!?" A lot of fun in context; but how often does that happen when the media is trying to prove a point? I could absolutely see him liking the concept and the spirit, but trying to come up with a different word to encompass it.

They haven't done that yet. But this is two iterations of a team lacking the word they've always tried to get the fans to chant. Seems odd is all.

I didn't like that chant one bit...

It just seemed so strange and out of place on a wrestling show...plus the manner everyone went about it...no thank you lol.

Pretty sure it's trolling at this point. That one might be the best though...
