WALTER defeated Roderick Strong in the main event of this week’s WWE NXT 2.0 but the bigger story was what happened after the match.
WALTER referred to himself as “Gunther”. WWE recently trademarked the name “Gunther Stark.” Gunter Stark who severed as a Nazi Germany military commander during World War II. Stark was a member of the famed “Olympia Crew” for the Kriegsmarine, the navy of Nazi Germany. The Olympia Crew was one of the most prominent Crews.
In 2022 one would think that WWE would be more cautious of the terms used on their programming but if shock value is there motive than there is sure to be plenty of fans who will certainly be reacting on social media just not in a good way.
