Yes, again. The Superstar Shakeup was one of the more action packed events of the WWE year with all kinds of things happening up and down the card. A bunch of names were brought over to the Monday Night Raw roster, with one of the bigger surprises being the debut of the War Raiders on the main roster. However, they were now called the Viking Experience. The name was changed to the Viking Raiders, and now it might be changed again.
According to Heelbynature.com, a new WWE Fan Council survey is now listing the team as the Viking Warriors instead of the Viking Raiders or the Viking Experience. At the moment, there is no word on whether or not this name change will take place on Monday Night Raw. As of this writing, the team is still listed as the Viking Raiders on WWE.com, meaning the change might be a typo.

Does their name actually matter? Check out the team massacring the Lucha House Party this week on Monday Night Raw:
Opinion: How in the world can WWE not get this right? Can they really not make their decision on something as simple as the name for two monsters like them? If you can’t call them the War Raiders on TV then fine, but stop changing their names on television over and over, because it’s just annoying at this point. They could be one of the best teams in a long time, but this is the only thing about them getting any attention.
What should the team name be? How ridiculous has WWE looked in this whole thing? Let us know in the comments below.
