• WWE Won’t Be Using Nazi Germany Military Commander’s Name For WALTER

As seen in the main event of this week’s NXT 2.0, WALTER defeated Roderick Strong in the main event.

After the match was over, WALTER took the mic and said his new name is “Gunther”.

WWE recently filed a trademark for “Gunther Stark”. If you Google this name, you will come to know that this was the name of a Nazi Germany military commander during World War 2.

WWE faced a lot of backlash from fans on Social Media, as fans thought WALTER’s new full name will be revealed as Gunther Stark, after the trademark news got out.

However, that’s not the case. WALTER’s new name will only be “Gunther”. WWE has updated it on their website:
