The wolf dead.
Anyone else think that the Viking Raiders sounds like an XFL team more than a tag team?
At least we have moved into the realm of sounding like a sports team as opposed to a ride at universal studios.Anyone else think that the Viking Raiders sounds like an XFL team more than a tag team?

Honestly is there a viking name that would work into the PG mentality and not sound hokey as fuck?
My baby momma is dating this dude who does the viking stuff so every month they take a three day weekend and dress up like Vikings at some dudes house. I mean to each his own and if you enjoy that awesome but the guy is 5'10" about 150lbs and somehow is their king. All of that stuff makes ingvar and selvigs shtick seem so goofy to me though.
Vince is the absolute dirt worst.So much for the “publicly asking for release” strategy...
According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE not only doesn’t plan to honor Luke Harper’s public request to be let go from his contract - they’ll be adding time to it. It’s believed Harper’s deal was due to end in November, but since the company can say it was “frozen” while he was out for wrist surgery last year, WWE’s position is he can’t leave until shortly before WrestleMania 36.
The mechanism by which they add time to a contract for dates a performer is unable/unwilling to work is reportedly how Neville/PAC was kept in limbo for so long after walking out in 2017. It’s also been mentioned as a possible tactic WWE will use in their “stalemate” with Sasha Banks.
Word has been Vince McMahon doesn’t want it to appear his contractors want out, but they’re also not interested in adding to the pool of talent available to AEW, ROH, New Japan, and others.
Blocking a well-liked wrestler from leaving isn’t a great public or worker relations move. But it should help squash the notion among wrestlers that posting a release request online will automatically get you free (after Ronnie “Tye Dillinger” Arneill got his that way). And - especially after online anger about things like Hulk Hogan’s reinstatement, the Crown Jewel show in Saudi Arabia, and John Oliver’s report for HBO on how they handle talent didn’t seem to impact their bottom line - WWE likely believes it can weather a little bad PR.
From what I've always heard, no big deal. The rap on him has been similar to the knock on him as a wrestler, in that he's bland and lacks psychology.Malenko quit.
Yeah, there are always a certain number of guys that are unhappy and who eventually ask for their releases, but in the post-WCW era, there have never substantial companies offering guys a relative living compared to what WWE pays unless you were a top guy who could bilk Dixie. So now, there is an increase in vocal comments to apply some pressure, but it always happens behind closed doors and the company are just going to be exploitative dicks because they never have to pay the piper for them.
if i was a stockholder i be more concerned with the turn over at wwe at the moment then a wrestlers gimmick, look at all these the wrestlers that want to leave. Have we ever saw so ma wrestler ask to be let out of their contracts? look at the writer and agent turnover.
If AEW is anywhere close to being popular you gonna see tons more wrestlers leave the WWE.
