Gunther Believes He Has Outgrown The WWE Intercontinental Title
Gunther has outgrown WWE Intercontinental Championship
Gunther has elevated the WWE Intercontinental Championship to the greatest heights it’s been at for decades, with the IMPERIUM leader becoming the longest-single reigning IC Champion ever, overtaking the Honky Tonk Man.
Despite his lofty reign with the IC Title, GUNTHER believes he has outgrown the championship, saying the following to WrestlingNews.co:
"That's not gonna happen," GUNTHER said when asked if the IC Title could main event night one of WrestleMania XL. "But I think there's a ranking system and everything for a reason. I think it's quite obvious that I outgrew the Intercontinental Championship already, I am ready to make that next step."
GUNTHER has mentioned his desire to face Brock Lesnar, but it seems ‘Der Ring General’ has his eyes set on a major world title, whether that’s Roman Reigns’ Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, or Seth Rollins' World Heavyweight Championship remains to be seen.
In WWE, GUNTHER is also a former NXT UK Champion, having held the title for over 870 days from April 2019 until August 2021.
