Waheguru simply means, the wonderful Guru.

And which Guru is the one, who is it so referred?

Well it is Akal Purukh Himself, as the very first Guru.

For when there was  nobody, nothing, it was His Jot which existed.

And about this very Guru, Gurbani tells us something about Him:

Aad Guray nameh

I bow to the Primal Guru,

Jugaad Guray nameh

I bow to the Guru woven through time

Sat Guray nameh

I bow to the True Guru, the true identity of the self.

Sri Guru devay nameh

I bow to the Great Guru whose great
glory will always be.

Guru: that which brings us from darkness of Maya and agyanta (GU),  to His light, His Jot, His wisdom (RU).

Sat Sree Akal.

that is how it is called the Mahamantra because it contains all the previous yugs mantras in one, the explanation you are thinking of is given by Bhai Gurdas ji

From your link:

No offence intended but a Sikhs Guru is and can only be Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji hence the term

"GUR SIKH" or "GURU DAH SIKH" or "GURSIKHI"

The word Guru in Sikhi is reserved only for the 10 Sikh Gurus and Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji.

actually a sikh is one of Akal Purakh that is the ultimate meaning because Guru Granth Sahib ji and Guru Panth ji conjoined represent Akal Purakh in this world . you have forgotten that Guru Pita ji said that .

It is just trying to treat Sikhi in a superficial way to justify 'Sikh are Hindu' speech and thought, but those who don't realise what depth there is in Sikhi flounder trying to put their hopes on a path(Brahminism) which Guru ji abandoned himself . Their own Vedas tell them that Kalyug avtar is Akal Purakh roop Dhan Dhan Guru Nanak Dev ji , that they should follow him but they hide this knowledge knowing it rings the death knell for their money making and exploitative ways.

What're you talking about ??!!!

In Bhai Gurdas ji's vaaran , it's clearly mentioned WaHeGuRu mantra is composed by uniting the names of god in 4 yugas.

W - Wasudev (Satjug)

H - Hari (Dwapar)

G - Gobind (Kalyug)

R - Raam (Treta)

As per hindus , Parbrahm is the origin of all things 

Hari means Krishna , and Krishna lived in Dwapar yug. But Krishna was named after Parbrahm , as Krishna means "attractor" , one of the names of brahm. Hindus slowly started equating Krishna to Hari. 

Ramchandar is from treta, the son of Dasrath. Ram chandra means (moon of Raam) or that which reflects the character of Raam. So Raam was actually another name of Parbrahm.

 Wasudev is from Satjug . Wasudev means "the residing lord".

And Guru Gobind Singh ji maharaj is from Kalyug.  Go(earth / vedas/ knowledge) + bind (center focal point). So Gobind means "the focal point of knowledge". 

So the mantar makes sense . And TBH , our current abrahamic kinda views of sikhi are far more superficial.

We really need to chew in our understanding the baani properly.

I agree we don't believe in hindu devi devte, but TBH karam , dharam philosophy is much older than sikhi . What was lost and found & something which was not earlier revealed is what we collectively call "sikh matt".

It's purely our egos that we despise at anything "hindu" , whereas we ourselves believe in concepts like Karam philosophy, Rebirth, need of Guru , etc which were first found in upanishads (concluding portion of vedas).
