In this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer noted that the reason why Imperium's theme was changed is that the plan is to break them up.

It was reported this week that they were likely moving up to the main roster. Dave Meltzer stated in the Observer that the plan is for Gunther and Marcel Barthel to move up but they are not going as a team and they will likely be on different brands. Fabian Aichner will probably stay in NXT.

Gunther lost to NXT Champion Bron Breakker this week. Putting the match on with no build seemed like an odd thing to do especially since Gunther has been presented as a top tier guy ever since he signed with NXT UK a few years ago.

His loss to Breakker came across as the end of his run on the brand. WWE typically will have people lose on the way out with the idea being that they would get a fresh start on the main roster.

There is no word yet when Gunther and Barthel might star on Raw or SmackDown.
