WWE Hyping Tag-Team Comeback For Next Week's SmackDown

Is it finally time for this SmackDown tag-team to click on WWE programming?

Viking Raiders

The Viking Raiders will return to WWE screens on next week's episode of SmackDown.

Friday's edition teased Erik and Ivar making a big impact when they step into WWE rings on TV for the first time since May. The Raiders' last televised match was a 10-minute win over The Creed Brothers on the 17 May NXT 2.0.

Before that, their last major WWE TV appearance was a 50-second count out loss to towering giant Omos on the 28 March Raw. Erik and Ivar's last win in front of the cameras was way, way, way back on the 21 January SmackDown - there, they hammered Los Lotharios in just over two minutes.


WWE might want to prep The Raiders for a crack at those Undisputed Tag-Team Titles. The Street Profits will challenge The Usos for those belts come Money In The Bank, but Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins are unlikely to take the straps.

The same could be said for Erik and Ivar, being honest, but having multiple challengers for Jimmy and Jey isn't the worst idea.


Expect another Raiders' squash on SmackDown next week then.
