It’s still a change. There are a lot of different ways to keep a wrestler feeling different and one of the most important is the wrestler’s name. Having the wrong name can cause a few problems for someone and as a result, WWE likes to mix things up a bit every now and that. That is the case again for a current WWE star, though this is one of the smallest changes you will ever see.
WWE has officially changed Ludwig Kaiser’s name to Ludvig Kaiser, as shown on his WWE.com profile page. There is no word on why the change was made and it has yet to be acknowledged on WWE TV. Kaiser was called up to the main roster full time earlier this year after the split of of the Imperium stable. He has continued to appear with Gunther on SmackDown, though Kaiser has yet to wrestle a match on WWE TV.
Opinion: This is one of those “only in WWE” things as they have literally decided to change a single letter in the name of someone who doesn’t actually wrestle at the moment and is solely there to introduce Gunther. They already changed his name from Marcel Barthel in NXT and now he has already had two names since his debut. Maybe he could even wrestle a match at some point before his next name change.
What do you think of Kaiser? How will he do when he gets to wrestle a match? Let us know in the comments below.
