One Big Thing

The real reason Ivar of the Viking Raiders has been written off WWE television in an injury angle has been revealed.

What Happened

  • On the May 14 episode of WWE NXT, Ivar was attacked by the returning Gallus
  • Ivar was declared “out of action indefinitely” following the attack

The Real Reason

According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter:

  • Ivar is being given time off because he’s been working hard lately
  • The injury is not serious and is just an angle

What’s Next

  • Ivar will be replaced by Apollo Crews in the May 22 edition of WWE Speed, facing Tyler Bate
  • Ivar’s tag team partner, Erik, underwent neck fusion surgery in September 2023 and is recovering well

Why It Matters

This revelation provides insight into how WWE manages its talent and storylines. By using an injury angle, the company can give performers much-needed time off while maintaining the continuity of the storyline. It also highlights the physical demands of professional wrestling and the importance of rest and recovery for the athletes involved.
