The longest reigning NXT UK Champion of all time, Leader of Imperium and current Intercontinental Champion, Gunther has made his presence known since his arrival on the WWE main roster, with wins over icons like Sheamus and Rey Mysterio and ‘The Ring General’ will certainly come across the likes of Roman Reigns, Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman in future. Gunther has provided some insight into who could be stood across from him as his career progresses.
Gunther was recently interviewed by Matt Sheehan of WMBD, who asked him about what his dream match would be, in light of Gunther’s brilliant thriller against Sheamus at WWE’s Clash Of The Castle.
“If I had to pin it down to one name, I’d say it’s Brock Lesnar at the moment. When I was young and watching WWE, I enjoyed watching his matches. Later on when I progressed in my career, I was able to watch wrestling and analyze how people work. He’s always been somebody I was impressed with. He’s one of the best to ever do it. I think that’s the biggest possible challenge for me at the moment.”– Gunther
Gunther has shown admiration for Brock Lesnar on previous occasions, calling him the smartest and best wrestler in the world.
Brock Lesnar last made an appearance at WWE’s most recent Crown Jewel Premium Live Event, securing a pinfall victory over ‘The All Mighty’ Bobby Lashley at the event.
