The last night’s NXT event has been phenomenal and everyone is just loving it. Earlier there has been some backlash for the name change and the reasons are obvious. Let’s talk about the name change of Walter.
Name change for Walter
Gunther Stark is the new name for Walter but there is a controversy going around this issue. The reason is that ‘Gunther Stark’ is the name a U-Boat Commander. He has served in the World War two in Kriegsmarine that is the navy of Nazi Germany. The sad part is that he died at the age of 27 on June 8th, 1944.During the time he was at a war in English Channel.
Fans must have noted that the last name ‘Stark’ was not mentioned anywhere on the roster page or bio of Walter. However it seems that there is some backup story for this name. Kyle O’ Reilly has referred to Walter by this name in December 2019. In this year Imperium had a feud with ‘The Undisputed era in NXT’. If you have missed the story you should also find out what Keith Lee and Lance Storm has to say.

The last night’s NXT show ended with Imperium (Gunther, NXT Tag Team Champions Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner). They had a faceoff with the Diamond Mine (Strong, The Creed Brothers). It looks like this feud is going to one of the top ones that will take NXT forward. Till no Walter has not changed his name on his bio or roster page. This will be interesting to observe if he changes his name or not.
The Ring General is currently working for full-time in the USA and that too on the NXT brand. All the wrestling fans also saw a backstage segment and Imperium introduced their new mission. They both decide to take on NXT and dominate it fully like they have already done in the UK.
