WWE Superstar Erik revealed yesterday that he recently underwent triceps surgery.
The former Raw Tag Team Champion tweeted: "Today I had hardware removed from my cyborg arm. I've been putting off this surgery for a long time and just worked thru the pain and limitations caused by a surgical screw protruding into my triceps. Thanks to the wonderful Dr Dugas, I'm excited to come back at full strength."
How long Erik will be on the shelf for is currently unknown, but his surgery means both members of The Viking Raiders will be out of action for some time. Ivar suffered a cervical injury during a six-man tag team match on Raw and he underwent neck surgery in mid-September. The lover of turkey legs has reportedly suffered from neck issues for a while and he is expected to be out of action for a year.
Since Ivar underwent surgery, Erik had been used as an enhancement talent on the red brand, losing against the likes of Riddick Moss and Bobby Lashley.
