• Another WWE Wrestler Might Be Getting A Name & Gimmick Change Soon
On this week’s episode of WWE NXT 2.0, a vignette aired from Venice, Italy for a well dressed man with a fashion sense.
Word going on is that this man is going to be former NXT Tag Team Champion Fabian Aichner of Imperium.
Gunther (fka WALTER) and Ludwig Kaiser (fka Marcel Barthel) of the Imperium stable were called up to SmackDown, but Fabian wasn’t.
With him remaining on NXT 2.0, WWE is dropping Fabian’s Imperium character and giving him a new character & name.
