Erik of the Viking Raiders (a/k/a Raymond Rowe) underwent surgery on Tuesday to repair a surgical screw in his “cyborg arm.” He noted in a Twitter post that the screw had been protruding into his triceps and he’s been working through the pain and limitations. He did not list a timeline for his recovery.
Powell’s POV: Rowe was involved in a motorcycle accident in 2015 and I suspect that’s where the initial injury occurred. It’s a good time for Rowe to have the surgery given that his tag team partner Ivar is currently sidelined by what’s been described as a cervical injury. Here’s wishing both men speedy recoveries.
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

Some people look really weird when sporting a toothy grin. I think Erik is one of them.
