Faction Reforms At WWE Clash At The Castle

Clash At The Castle has already seen its first return.

During WWE Clash At The Castle, during Intercontinental Champion, Gunther’s entrance, Giovanni Vinci appeared alongside Ludwig Kaiser prior to Gunther making his way down to the ring.

WWE confirmed that the trio will still be referred to as Imperium, as seen below:

Vinci, was formerly known as Fabian Aichner, where he formed Imperium alongside both Kaiser and Gunther, where the trio ran roughshod through both NXT UK and NXT ahead of the latter’s rebranding to NXT 2.0. Gunther and Kaiser made their respective main roster debuts, this past April, while vignettes ran on NXT 2.0 programming to hype up the ‘debut’ of Aichner’s new Giovanni Vinci moniker. Vinci and Kaiser are former two-time NXT Tag Team Champions, while Gunther is the current Intercontinental Champion and is the longest reigning NXT UK Champion, where he held the title for 870 days before losing the title to Ilja Dragunov at NXT TakeOver 36, in August 2021.
