Former RAW Tag Team Champions The Viking Raiders have returned to WWE on the RAW After WrestleMania.
The tag team, who have been out of tag team action for over eight months with both Erik and Ivar undergoing surgery, returned to RAW in triumphant fashion with a win over former RAW Tag Team Champions and ex-Hurt Business members Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander.
Interestingly, the Hurt Business were the last opponents Erik and Ivar as a team in September, when the Viking Raiders teamed with Apollo Crews and Ricochet in a losing effort. The match ended abruptly following an injury to Ivar. Ivar’s surgery saw a short stint in RAW Underground for Erik, who enjoyed sporadic appearances following the injury to his long-term tag team partner. However, Erik himself would also recently undergo surgery to fix a surgical screw protruding into his bicep, which he said limited him for a long time, as well as fathering his first child with former WWE Superstar Sarah Logan.

The Viking Raiders weren’t the only return to RAW, as Charlotte Flair came back to stake her claim for a RAW Women’s Championship opportunity – attacking Asuka and Rhea Ripley during their WrestleMania rematch.
