Default 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.
