Keith Lee and Others React To The News of WALTER’s Name Change

As previously reported, WALTER’s name was seemingly changed to Gunther during the end of the January 18th 2022 WWE NXT broadcast. Prior to the show airing, it was reported that WWE filed a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the term ‘Gunther Stark’ which was the name of a U-boat commander for the Nazis during World War II.

“WALTER” and “Gunther” became trending topics on Twitter as the name change was met with criticism. Former WWE star Keith Lee was among those that commented on the name change:

“Man….if what I’m hearing is real….

Poor Walter.”
