A current WWE Superstar has counted their blessings as they revealed that they should have died in a motorcycle crash years ago.

The Viking Raiders joined WWE back in 2018 under the NXT umbrella where they became the War Raiders. This came off the back of a successful run in both Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling where the team captured both company’s tag team championships.

But now Erik of the team has revealed on social media that things could have been very different as he reflected on a special anniversary. He explained that back in 2014 he could have died in a motorcycle crash and was told then that he’d never wrestle again:

“8/12/2014 I should have died in a motorcycle wreck and doctors told me that I’d never wrestle again. 8/12/2022 I have a beautiful family and I’m a full time viking, in and outside of the ring”

Erik and his partner Ivar have held both the NXT and Raw Tag Team Championships during their time in the company. The Viking Raiders are currently embroiled in a feud with iconic WWE tag team, The New Day, on SmackDown with Erik recently losing a singles match to Kofi Kingston.

Away from the ring, Erik is married to former WWE Superstar Sarah Logan. The couple welcomed their first child into the world back in 2021.
