Dieter made his debut for wXw in January 2009, where he lost to Dan Marshall, and his next match came way after 2012 when he and Da Mack defeated Walter and Michael Isotov. These two went on to make a stable named Hot and Spicy.

On November 16, 2013, they defeated The Outsiders (Walter and Robert Dreissker) to win the wXw World Tag Team Championship. They went on to make seven successful defences of the championship, defeating the likes of The Sumerian Death Squad (Tommy End and Michael Dante), Forever Hooligans (Rocky Romero and Alex Koslov), Kazuki Hashimoto, and Ryuichi Kawakami.

After over a combined year as wXw World Tag Team Champions, Dieter and Da Mack were defeated by French Flavour (Lucas Di Leo and Peter Fischer) on October 18, 2014, bringing their reign to an end. However, later in their careers, Dieter and Da Mack faced off against each other, with Da Mack coming out on top and retaining his wXw Shotgun Championship.

In late 2016, Dieter joined Ringkampf, and on December 10, he defeated Marty Scurll to win the wXW Unified World Wrestling Title. Dieter held the championship until March 2017, when Jurn Simmons defeated him.

After leaving wXW in 2017, Dieter signed with WWE under his real name, Marcel Barthel. On the August 8, 2018, episode of NXT, Barthel made his television debut, where he was defeated by Keith Lee. He would then form a team with Fabian Aichner.

They would later align themselves with Walter and Alexander Wolfe, forming the stable Imperium. On the May 13, 2020, episode of NXT, Barthel and Aichner would defeat Matt Riddle and Timothy Thatcher, a substitute for Riddle’s original partner Pete Dunne, winning the NXT Tag Team Championship.

After many successful title defences against teams like Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch and The Undisputed Era, on the August 26 episode of NXT, Imperium would lose the titles to Tyler Breeze and Fandango, ending their reign at 105 days. They again won the titles in October, and that reign lasted for 158 days.

Barthel’s final NXT appearance was on the April 5 episode of NXT, when he and Aichner faced the Creed brothers in a losing effort, with Aichner walking out of their match.


On the April 8, 2022, episode of SmackDown, Barthel, under the new ring name Ludwig Kaiser, debuted with 9, accompanying him in his match against a local competitor.
