WWE has already abandoned their trademark filing on the name Gunther Stark.

WWE filed that they had abandoned the registration of the trademark yesterday, 1/19.

As noted yesterday on, the trademark registration blew up in WWE's face on both social media and with a number of mainstream outlets in the United States and internationally.  The Gunther Stark name, devised as the new ring name for the former WALTER, was identical to a Nazi U-Boat Commander in World War II.

WWE moved forward with WALTER's new ring name this past Tuesday, instead using "Gunther" without the last name.
