Sarah Logan recently made her return to WWE with The Viking Raiders faction. Several cryptic vignettes featuring her aired for weeks with her back towards the camera wearing a deer horns headdress. She returned to SmackDown with a new look, new attitude and a new Name. Her name is Valhalla now.

Her new name was even used during the vignettes earlier but it was used as a part of her promo, not her name.
A couple of weeks back, Valhalla with Viking Raiders attacked both Hit Row and Legado Del Fantasma and had them laid out. This week, Eric and Ivar defeated Hit Row’s Top Dolla and Adonis. She confirmed her new name on twitter as well and wrote “I’m no longer Sarah Logan I am beloved by the moon And the gods have spoken my true name I am Valhalla.”

Her name comes from Viking mythology. In Norse mythology Valhalla (/vælˈhælə, vɑːlˈhɑːlə/) is the anglicised name for Old Norse: Valhǫll (“hall of the slain”).
As Sarah Logan, she was a part of Ruby Riot’s Riot Squad during her first run. WWE released the 29 year old superstar two years back with many others during WWE’s pandemic budget cut releases.
Fans noticed her new scary look more than anything when she returned. Although she looked intimidating, fans noticed blatant similarities between her and another indie wrestler’s look. The other wrestler is Max The Impaler, who is active on the indie scene and has wrestled for OVW, AEW, ROH, Impact and many others. What’s worse is that Logan’s look seems like a poor copy of Max’s. Except her face paint and dreadlocks, everything else looks like a knock off, especially her outfit.
She and The Viking Raiders’ Eric are husband and wife and have a son together.
