Triple H Makes Change To Gunther’s Ring Name? WWE

It appears that Triple H has made a change to Gunther’s ring name.

The current Intercontinental Champion wrestled as ‘WALTER’ until January, when the star declared that his new ring name would be ‘Gunther’.

During a recent interview, Gunther noted that he was fine with the name change, but admitted that he was unaware that WWE wasn’t stylising his new name with capital letters.

WWE has now announced that Gunther’s Imperium faction will battle the Brawling Brutes in a Donnybrook match at Extreme Rules on October 8. In the preview for the bout, Gunther’s name is now capitalised.

Many of the name changes that occurred earlier this year came after Vince McMahon issued a mandate about not wanting stars to use their real names on WWE TV. Triple H is now in charge of all things creative within WWE, as the company’s Chief Content Officer.

As of writing, GUNTHER’s profile doesn’t have his name in all caps, but it is worth noting that we’ve previously learned of a few WWE name changes, including Seth Rollins’ ‘Freakin’ middle name, through articles.
