Well that didn’t take very long. The Viking Raiders made their WWE Main Event debut in a match against Titus O’Neil and No Way Jose.
They join a very long list of NXT call-ups to be pushed for two weeks on the main roster and then only appearing on Main Event and in battle royals.
They defeated O’Neil and Jose in about 4 minutes in a match that may as well never have happened. No Way Jose is a joke and O’Neil is a part-timer, so who gains what from this exactly?
One fan pointed on Twitter:
These wrestlers haven’t been on tv in WEEKS yet Shane McMahon who’s supposed to be an authority figure is on both shows!

And speaking of people gaining nothing, elsewhere on the show, Natalya defeated Sarah Logan, wife of the Viking Raiders’ Erik. Maybe WWE just doesn’t like the fact that they’re married.
Logan has gone completely missing following the WWE Superstar Shake-Up, much like her former Riott Squad stable-mates Ruby Riott and Liv Morgan.
Unfortunately it looks like both the Viking Raiders and the Riott Squad are destined to fester in the quagmire that is the WWE main roster. Good Job, Vince.
