Back in January, 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.

WWE has now announced that Gunther’s Imperium faction will battle the Brawling Brutes in a Donnybrook match at Extreme Rules on October 8. In the WWE.com preview for the show, In that preview, his name is in all capital letters, the same as WALTER was before. Gunther admitted in the past that he wasn’t aware WWE didn’t all caps his new name.
Gunther’s name is now capitalized. We’ll have to see whether this will be a permanent change or not.
