    "What would happen if the Vikings attacked Tenochtitlan?" seems to be what you are actually asking. The answer would be 'not a lot' as it couldn't have happened.

    The Vikings and Tenochtitlan didn't overlap.  The city was founded about 200 years after the Viking era ended.  Plus the Vikings were mostly coastal raiders, with the ability to penetrate further inland via rivers.  Tenochtitlan was located in the caldera of an extinct volcano.  But if they were somehow able to fight the Vikings would lose.  They were chased out of Newfoundland because of conflict with the natives there who didn't have an organized military like the Aztecs did.  During the Spanish Conquest the Aztecs were routinely able to win local military victories against the Spanish and that was despite Spanish alliance with powerful local Aztec client states who wanted to overthrow the Aztec empire.  The Vikings wouldn't have fared as well.

    He'd probably not do too well. There's just no way one Viking could defeat the defending Aztec forces, no matter the size of his axe. Hope this helped answer your imbecilic question.

    Would have to rewrite history books, the Vikings never made it to Mexico. If they had they would have defeated the natives like they did everyone else.

    Cortez was successful, because he created alliances with the enemies of the Aztecs. The Vikings despised Eskimos and Native Americans. calling them all Skrælings. Without an alliance, the Vikings would get wiped out.
