EC called 'No Escape' in Germany because of the Nazis?

Was just checking some Elimination Chamber details on Wiki and noticed that the event is called No Escape in Germany. I was wondering if anyone knew the definite reason for this as the only one I can think of is that the words Elimination Chamber might be a little bit too close to what the Nazis had for the Jews.

But then again the German fans must be watching the build-up shows and know what it's really called as the wrestlers constantly call it the Chamber, so changing it would surely draw more attention to the similarity.

I dunno. Just wondering if anyone knew any more about it.

This came about last year I believe. You are correct in your guess. It is because of the concentration camp connotations.

They should've just kept it as No Way Out. Elimination Chamber sucks as a PPV Name.

I would assume so. I wonder if they change it on a Israeli broadcast.
