Re: The Viking Experience

You people are so judgmental. Just give it a chance first.

*Natecore gives it a chance*

Fuck You, Vince!

Of course. Political correctness is a LOST WAR on ideas.

Unbelievable team on NXT. I feel like it’s already failed lol.


Vince written all over it...
Don’t worry. The name will be shortened to The Experience or The Vikings. Actually, I am surprised they weren’t named The Berzerkers (like Padilla and Epico becoming Las Matadores)

Re: The Viking Experience

This is a terrible name. Plain and simple. Some of the name changes you can probably justify. Not this one. It’s just awkward and silly.

Re: The Viking Experience

"The Viking Experience"

Is that a reference to their old show "The WWE Experience".?

Their name change feels like something either an all-you-can eat buffet or something that I would read on a massage parlor with happy endings.

Makes me wonder if they had a gimmick change to a masseuse. "Two big, hairy, oiled up men in face-paint giving rough and strong body massage to soothe the bodies of their customers while lathering themselves in lavender providing the best Norse style massage that would even make Erik the Red scream uncle. This is "The Viking Experience".

Re: The Viking Experience

Hopefully they ignore that name was ever a thing and quickly rename them back to War Raiders

Re: The Viking Experience

Beyond dumb. But I'm pretty confident this was done because Vince was scared one of his sponsors would throw a fit or be uncomfortable with the word "War" being in one of their teams' names, especially with what's going on in the world today. But it's so dumb. Like, is a fake wrestling tag team having the word 'War' in their name the same as and easy to get confused with REAL WAR??? Is this team going to the ring with guns, knives, cannons, and grenades to beat their opponents? So dumb.
