Ivar Set to Undergo Surgery Today; Could Be Out of Action Over a Year

-- As noted yesterday, Ivar of the Viking Raiders was set to undergo surgery on his neck sometime today. On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, it was speculated that neck surgery will probably sideline him for at least a year. The injury puts into question the future of tag team partner Erik, who was quickly jobbed out yesterday to Bobby Lashley. It was suggested that when one member of a tag team is sidelined long term, the other often is buried and the future of the tag team as a whole is often completely up in the air when the injured partner is ready to return.
