Ivar of The Viking Raiders Updates

Update On Ivar Of The Viking Raiders: Neck Injury Issues, Raw Changed On-The-Fly

Another update regarding the injury status of WWE Superstar Ivar of The Viking Raiders tag-team has surfaced.

It still hasn’t been determined whether Ivar is going to need surgery for the neck injury he suffered on this past week’s edition of WWE Monday Night Raw.

The Viking Raider tag-team member hurt himself attempting to execute a dive from the ring through the ropes and out to the floor, and his head collided with the arm of Bobby Lashley, resulting in whiplash.

The referee in the match was told to immediately end the match after Ivar himself threw up the “X” sign while rolling in pain on the floor upon landing (View Here), so he ended up counting to three despite Ricochet kicking out at two.

After the show, Ivar released a statement addressing his injury status coming out of the scary-looking spot on this week’s WWE red brand show.

The concern with Ivar’s injury is that he has a history of neck issues before this latest incident, so things could be worse than one might expect.

The fact that he’s dealing with injuries of this level of severity on a regular basis at this point in his career is definitely not going to help his case in a WWE that is making employee cuts up to 60-people deep on more than one occasion over the past six-month time period.

We will keep you posted here at eWrestling.com as updates continue to surface regarding the condition of Ivar of The Viking Raiders.
