WALTER had been a dominant force in WWE ever since he made his debut back in January 2019. The former NXT UK Champion is also the longest-reigning champion in modern WWE. Many WWE Superstars want a piece of him, but now they will go after the man with a new name.

Many fans were concerned after it was revealed WWE copyrighted the name Gunther Stark, as it was related to someone who actually served on one of Hitler’s U-Boats. Unfortunately, their worst fears came true in the worst way possible.

On this weeks episode of NXT 2.0, WALTER squared off against Roderick Strong in a singles match. After defeating Strong, WALTER revealed that he is now called Gunther. He did not reveal a last name, but fans were still plenty upset.

To the surprise of absolutely no one, fans were outraged over WWE’s decision to change WALTER’s name into something so controversial.

Even Keith Lee felt sorry for WALTER after his name got changed, We will have to wait and see how WALTER will be booked in the coming weeks as his time in NXT 2.0 has already gotten off to an unpleasant start.
