• SmackDown Star’s Name Slightly Changed
In the post WrestleMania 38 season, Gunther (fka WALTER) and Ludwig Kaiser (fka Marcel Barthel) of the Imperium stable were called up to SmackDown.
Since then, Gunther has been destroying wrestlers on the blue brand, with Ludwig acting more of a manager for him so far.
WWE has made a slight change to Ludwig’s name. The ‘w’ in his name has been replaced with ‘v’. It’s Ludvig Kaiser now.
In the tweet from WWE’s official page below, you can see the original spelling of the name had a ‘w’ in it.

Speaking of name changes, Luvig’s former tag team partner Fabian Aichner of Imperium (who wasn’t called up to SmackDown) is expected to get a name & character change on NXT 2.0.
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. This person is expected to be Aichner.
