A “ladies man character” in WWE could have had their own specialist dating site if creative plans had come into being.
During the dark times of no-crowd WWE programming, the creative time had the idea on the page for quite some time before dropping it.
Former WWE writer Chris Dunn recalled the work he was doing with the Street Profits and Viking Raiders on the Public Enemies Podcast, saying:
“One thing that got cut every single week was, I was doing all the off-sites with the Profits and the Viking Raiders.
“I became really close with those guys, all four of them. We – that’s also too, [we were] trying to take an idea that’s not great and turn it into something.
“Because the original concepts for that, not great, but it worked out really well.”
Dunn would then reveal the plans that led to the dating site idea, adding:
“When we kind of accidentally made Ivar a ladies man character, we wanted to have him talk and eventually open a website that would be ‘Vikings Only,’ like Farmers Only [laughs].
“I think we changed it because of OnlyFans, to keep people [from] getting confused, to Vikings Mingle.
“We literally had it in the script for seven to eight weeks, and because of how crazy the pandemic stuff was, things kept on changing on the fly all the time.”
Viking Raiders are former WWE Raw Tag Team Champions and NXT Tag Team Champions.
They are currently on the SmackDown brand and are currently managed by Valhalla.
They were recently defeated in the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Title #1 Contendership Tournament First Round by Drew McIntyre & Sheamus.
