WWE NXT 2.0 star Gunther was interviewed recently by Nick Hausman of WrestlingInc.com and touched on his ring name being changed from WALTER and the uproar it has caused among his fans.
“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.”
Gunther also commented on his new look physical:
“I guess I eat less. I always worked out a lot, but for the first time, I have really focused on my nutrition. These guys really pushed me. I’ve got to say, when I was a wrestling fan, I always liked the look of the solid heavyweights in Japan who had a little bit of a gut carrying around, just brawls and stuff like that. But, at the end of the day, you’ve got to go with the times, and evolve a little bit, and that’s what I did.”
Gunther or WALTER, which ring name do you prefer?
