Three NXT stars debut on Friday Night Smackdown

Three NXT stars – Gunther, Marcel Barthel, and Raquel Gonzalez – all made their Smackdown debuts last night.

Gunther and Barthel appeared together, although Barthel is now going by the name of Ludwig Kaiser and both of them are wearing red. Gunther had a squash match and defeated Joe Alonso.

Gonzalez also got a slight name change and is now using the name of Raquel Rodriguez. She appeared in a backstage segment where she was interrupted by Los Lotharios who wanted a kiss, a gesture she refused.

All three were rumored for a main roster call up this week.
