WALTER, Alexander Wolfe, and Marcel Barthel have announced that they are closing RINGKAMPF, their clothing brand. They made this reveal in a public statement this morning.
In their letter, which was written in both English and German, they explained that RINGKAMPF was started to spread their “message and ideology” about pro wrestling and help themselves as they started their careers. Now they are with WWE and cannot continue. This is also why they are unable to work wXw events in Germany.
Since everything has come to an end, we want to announce that we will close down our operations by the end of the year.
RINGKAMPF was a way to spread our message and ideology about Pro Wrestling, and support ourselves early in our careers. Today we are living our dream and are signed to the leading company in Pro Wrestling. This also means we are no longer able to compete in Germany or wXw on a regular basis.
To us, RINGKAMPF was always connected to wXw and our fanbase there. Without wXw there would be no RINGKAMPF. And we have been fortunate enough to leave our mark in the build up of Pro Wrestling in Germany.
We achieved everything we wanted to achieve with RINGKAMPF, and want to close this chapter in a positive way.
Lastly, thank you. Thank you to everybody who supported us over the years, and to wXw who helped us starting out.
Keep supporting our great sport!
WWE NXT UK provided a great home for all three of them as featured performers. We’ll have to see if someone can eventually fill the void left by RINGKAMPF shutting down. wXw will certainly miss having the three of them around.
