• Vince McMahon Asked SmackDown Wrestler To Lose Weight
On last Friday’s episode of SmackDown, former NXT UK Champion Gunther (fka WALTER) made his official WWE main roster debut.
He was accompanied by Ludwig Kaiser (fka Marcel Barthel), who was also making his main roster debut.
Gunther kicked off his main roster career with a win over Joe Alonzo (local wrestler).
