Gunther Didn't Enjoy WWE TV Under Vince McMahon

The product had put Gunther off going to the United States

Gunther is enjoying life in WWE under the new regime, which is headed creatively by Paul 'Triple H' Levesque. The old one as overseen by Vince McMahon? Not so much. 

During a recent appearance on Gorilla Position, the longest-reigning Intercontinental Champion in WWE history was asked whether he believed he would have had a similar reign with McMahon in charge, to which The Ring General said: 

"I don't know, but it was one of the reasons why, for a long time I didn't want to go to the US. The product before Triple H was not what I enjoyed. I just didn't want to be part of that. I am who I am and that's what I can do best. A big part of that is I need to have my time in the ring and have that time to put on the matches I can put on. That chance would not be there under the old regime. With Triple H, he always saw that in me, and he always had that vision for me. I got lucky that a lot of things in my career took place at the right time. It was a little bit of a leap of faith when I first made the move over. Everything worked out in the end." 

In the same interview, Gunther gave his opinion on who he thinks was the "correct choice" to end his 666-day IC Title reign.
