GUNTHER Wants WWE Match With Brock lesnar In The UK
The Intercontinental Champion wants a match with The Beast in Blighty
GUNTHER is still angling for a match with Brock Lesnar.
The current Intercontinental Champion has made no secret of his desire to square off with the Beast Incarnate and, during a recent appearance on My Love Letter to Wrestling with Mark Andrews, suggested the showdown could potentially happen in the United Kingdom.
Speaking about his brief interaction with Brock in the 2023 Royal Rumble match, GUNTHER said:
"That moment with Brock was all I needed. I don't think we needed to have lots of action going on with him, get into a little scuffle and stuff, just the moment and the crowd reaction for that, it was all I needed. Just see how people...on the internet, you read stuff and people get easily excited, but often, the hype from online doesn't translate to the venue. When that happened, I was like, compared to the US, especially in England, people understand competition. They tend to look at the match and take it as a competition and then emotionally react to it, rather than expecting the fireworks right away".
Asked whether Paul 'Triple H' Levesque may be interested in booking the anticipated bout in the UK, Der Ring General responded:
"I hope. The thing is, who knows. We had great success as Clash at the Castle, and now coming back with Money in the Bank, I'm hoping this is something that becomes a tradition where they venture out to Europe for the big events. The response is great and we get the chance more often".
GUNTHER recently successfully defended his title against Mustafa Ali at Night of Champions. On the same show, Lesnar defeated Cody Rhodes by technical submission.
