Gunther’s wife, Genie, is one that many WWE fans are familiar with. Still, being the wife of a Raw superstar isn’t the only reason many wrestling fans know about Genie.
Gunther’s wife, Genie, is a former WWE Superstar. He made his wrestling debut in 2015 and wrestled his first match for the Stamford-based promotion in 2017. He signed a contract with the company in 2018 and the following year, he competed in NXT UK alongside Gunther (fka Walter). The WWE couple made their relationship public in November 2021.
While Gunther is now on WWE’s main roster as a member of Imperium alongside Ludwig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci, the same cannot be said for the former female star. In January 2023, Genie announced that he had decided to retire from wrestling due to injury.
“After a long time sidelined with injury, I have decided to hang up my fashionable boots. Thank you for all the memories. I will cherish them forever. Every journey has an end, but in life, every end just happens.” A New Beginning. I’m excited for what’s next 💋”

The pair sparked rumors of a July 2022 wedding after they took Gunther’s real last name and changed their status from ‘married’. Although recently the pictures and videos of the wedding of both were shared on social media.

Although she is no longer an in-ring performer, the 35-year-old can still be seen behind the scenes at some of the Stamford-based promotion’s events to show support for her husband. As it turns out, there might even be a possibility of them performing together under the same brand.
In an interview with Metro UK, the former NXT star revealed that he had planned to debut on the main roster. However, after suffering a major injury, he had to focus on his long-term health first. Still, the people around him were more than supportive and understanding.

“Generally speaking, I’ve always wanted to make it to the main roster,” she explained. “And then when the injury hit, my health took priority. The work was absolutely fantastic, they were very supportive, they were very understanding.”
The Ring General has displayed a domineering and cold character on television, and it’s nice to see that he can be himself when he’s with his significant other, Genie.
