From Mick's Facebook:
"Sure it’s a bad name - but it got people talking! Plus, these two guys are talented enough to weather the storm. For those of you who were sleeping, the #WarRaiders were transformed into the #VikingExperience for the WWE Raw debut, and many fans were not happy about it. I put out a little tweet, just being happy that two hard-working guys had made their debut on #Raw -and you would have thought I just praised John Cena with the heat I got for it! My guess is that anything with the word “war” in it is not going to go down well with USA Network or current and potential sponsors."
Rumor has it the name reconsideration from "War Raiders" was because brass in WWE thought that the usage of the word "war" would not sell merchandise. What say you, fellow readers?
