WWE New Day impersonates Viking Raiders, references Thor and Assassin’s Creed in hilarious SmackDown promo

The New Day ended up being beaten on last week’s SmackDown by the vicious new Viking Raiders, and this week they were bent on revenge. That payback started when they stepped out in the ring in full Viking Raiders costume, complete with fake beards and shields. They put on their best Viking accents (although, as Kofi pointed out, Xavier’s sometimes sounded more like a pirate) and shot Ivar and Erik. They decided to go the extra mile and work in reference to Thor and Assassin’s Creed, and you can check out some of their promo below.

During their promo they said they researched Viking ways to really get into character, although Woods says the research really involved playing a lot of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla on PS5 and watching all of the movies from Thor, “even the new!” .

The Viking Raiders were coming out and looking a little pissed about the whole thing, and they were rushing to the ring. What they didn’t expect was that New Day had enlisted the help of Shanky and Jinder Mahal, who attacked the Viking Raiders before they even got to the ring.

After knocking them to the ground and halting their lead, Shanky and Mahal would join New Day in the ring, and the Viking Raiders would slowly fall back. Afterwards, New Day, Shanky, and Mahal would all end up dancing a bit in the ring, though Mahal mostly looked shocked at what was going on around him.

We don’t know what the plan is for New Day at SummerSlam, but you can find the current map for the upcoming event below.
