Erik of Viking Raiders confirmed via Twitter that he went under the knife today to have a screw removed. The screw that was removed has been protruding for some time from a previously placed rod during another surgery.
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. pic.twitter.com/9iwOr8jZKE

The exact timetable for his return to the ring is unknown. Erik had been putting off this surgery for some time, but with Ivar out and his wife (Sarah Rowe) expecting their first child, now was the right time to get it done. It’s not expected to take as long to heal as Ivar’s injury, but he may choose to stay out until his return and after his child’s birth.
Jason’s Jest: This was absolutely the perfect time to have this surgery done to remove the screw. As I was typing, I had to stop myself from including “loose screw” jokes, but that could explain his in ring persona! Sorry for the bad “Dad Joke”!
