WWE Injury Update: Erik Undergoes Surgery

One half of the WWE tag team The Viking Raiders, Erik, has announced that he has had surgery on his arm.

Erik announced on Twitter that he had just had surgery to remove a surgical screw from his arm. This was something that he said he had been putting off for some time.

While he didn’t specify when he had the screw that had been bothering put in, it should be noted that Erik had been involved in a serious motorcycle accident back in 2014. The surgical screw could have been put in to help with the injuries he incurred then.

Erik had the surgery done at the Andrews Sports Medicine & Orthopedic Center in Birmingham, Alabama with Dr. Jeffrey Dugas.

His tag team partner Ivar, who suffered an on-air injury on Raw, also reported recently that he had successful neck surgery at the same clinic but with Dr. Andrew Cardover.

Ivar has been absent from WWE television since his injury while, without his tag team partner, Erik has mostly stuck to wrestling on WWE Main Event and on Raw Underground.

Erik was last seen on WWE TV during last week’s Main Event, where he wrestled and lost to Riddick Moss. Moss himself has also just revealed that he has been wrestling injured.
