Viking Raiders’ Ivar Has Surgery – Rehab To Take Over A Year

Following Ivar of The Viking Raider’s suffering a severe neck injury last week, it is reported that recovery from surgery is likely to take over a year.

Ivar of the Viking Raiders suffered a severe neck injury on Raw last week when attempting a suicide dive in an 8-man tag team match.

The injury was immediately obvious as Ivar immediately displayed the arms-crossed ‘X’ sign that is the common indicator of a genuine injury in wrestling.

It was subsequently revealed that surgery would be needed and that took place today.

According to Brian Alvarez of The Wrestling Observer, the surgery will come with a long road to recovery. Over 12 months in fact.

Where this leaves Ivar’s partner Eric remains to be seen. He lost a short match to Bobby Lashley short match on Raw that could be seen as a write off of television.

Where this leaves Raw’s tag team division is anyone’s guess. Andrade/Angel Garza, Seth Rollins & Murphy and Cedric Alexander & Ricochet have all recently split up and AOP have of course been released leaving The Street Profits as the only team in the division.
