Earlier this year, WALTER went through a major name change and is now going by Gunther. The transition saw a good deal of backlash from the fans due to it being the name of a Natzi General. However, he admitted it did not bother him at all.
“Not all to be honest,” Gunther told Wrestling Inc. “If it would be the other way around, and it would be Gunther before and Walter now, it would have been the same uproar. A lot of people react negatively to change. Change is normal in life, and it’s part of it, and we have to go with it.”
The NXT 2.0 star confirmed he is now based in America.
“I am living over here now, and finally we are all on the same side of the pond,” he said.
