WWE added Heavy Machinery to the list of talents moving to the Smackdown brand following the Superstar Shakeup. The former NXT stars had been making appearances on both Raw and Smackdown since being called up to the main roster.

Also moved to Smackdown

Liv Morgan
Chad Gable
Apollo Crews
Mickie James

So Gable is no longer with Bobby Roode and The Riott Squad is down to two members.

None of that is important enough to mention in 5 hours of TV, and WWE wonders why people want their release.

I loved what little I saw of Uhaa Nation before he signed with WWE. He was awesome as this huge guy flying around with the rest of the Dragon Gate roster. Then he he got to WWE and even on NXT Triple H told him that he was a big guy who should be using power moves. What NXT did do was give him a great introduction and told his story, making him into a huge baby face. Vince saw him and his muscles reminded him of a young Tony Atlas, and he signed him to the main roster before the cum had dried in his sock. They took his uniqueness away, promoted him before he'd had a chance to shine in NXT (it looked like he was going to defeat Balor for the title at one point), and now he's just another guy.

I never saw him as a big guy.  He comes across like he's 5'6".  He's got a bit of a barrel chest and maybe in 2019 that's enough to be considered "big" by default, but it's insane that they won't just let him do what he does.  And the last person he should've been paired with is Titus O'Neal if they wanted him to come across as a big guy, because Titus is one of the few legit big guys left in the company, and they don't do anything with him either. But Apollo looked like Hornswoggle standing next to him.

The rosters should have been mixed up more.

The Viking Experience name is ridiculous.

I also think the Lacey Evans gimmick is corny and will keep the wrestler from getting over. It comes off like something from a 1994 edition of Superstars that ought to have her doing an interview with Todd Petengill to challenge Alundra Blayze in between a Headshrinkers squash and Shawn Michaels having Tatanka on the Heartbreak Hotel segment.

Vince evidently sees money in Lacey. An athletic blonde with a military background seems like it would be his ultimate wet dream.

It's just so basic. They were bad-ass wrestlers who used Viking imagery. Now they are actual Vikings who eat raw meat. If Heavy Machinery are the new Bushwhackers, the Viking Experience are the new Headshrinkers.

I heard Manataur and Minotaur were also options but Hanson and Rowe couldn’t agree on who got the wear the buffalo head.

PWInsider is reporting that they were going to be named The Bezerkers until it was changed right before the show. Seriously.

That's hilarious. I was joking that they would be switched to the "Berzerker Experience" with no explanation, a la John Nord in early 1991.

There is a Viking Experience in York. They simulate the smell of horse shit for the proper Jorvik aroma.

They must have 2 other guys they can bring up to saddle them all with The Four Norsemen. From Fjord City.

Lunatic Lutefisk. The Pillage People. Lefse Rightside, the stiff but safe brawler powered by potatoes. Little Norway for the minis division. The hits just keep on comin'.
