WWE will sometimes change up a Superstar’s name when they make their main roster debuts. That happened once again as a new team found their way to SmackDown.

Click here for our complete coverage of WWE SmackDown from this week.

Marcel Barthel is now Ludwig Kaiser and he was happy to introduce Gunter. Of course, Gunther was known as WALTER until not too long ago. Now he has slimmed down and he is on the main roster.

WWE tried to get WALTER to debut on the main roster for years, but he wasn’t interested. Things changed with his home life as he split with his wife. Now he has made his debut on SmackDown.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
