Reigning over 200 days, Gunther is ranking among the best Intercontinental champions of the last era. Just today, the Austrian athlete has in fact exceeded 200 days of reign, an important record rarely achieved in recent years within a kingdom fought and defended several times.
The matches against Shinsuke Nakamura, Rey Mysterio, Kofi Kingston, Sheamus, Ricoechet, have certainly raised the bar of a historic belt for the Stamford federation and capable of launching its holders towards more important, relevant scenarios.
The various Ultimate Warriors, Randy Orton, Edge and many others over time were the first holders of the IC title, these acting as a stepping stone towards a new and glorious road towards the World Championship. Perhaps this path will also be useful and truthful for Gunther previously known in WWE for his path between NXT UK and NXT where he held the NXT UK Championship.
Backstage news on Gunther
Before his arrival in WWE in 2019, the former WALTER was the maximum champion in Progress Wrestling, in Pro Wrestling Guerilla and above all in Over The Top Wrestling, the Irish federation par excellence and in which an epic rivalry with Jordan Devlin took place (now known as JD McDonagh ed) which ended on the well-known St.
Patrick's Day 2019, or during the ScrapperMania show. With his IMPERIUM behind him, Gunther's path seems increasingly successful and who knows if one day, without the presence of Roman Reigns and his Bloodline, the day of the Austrian and his total domination may finally come.

Seth Rollins stated that he likes Gunther's work on SmackDown and would like to face the current Intercontinental Champion soon. "There's a guy on our SmackDown roster that I really like. His name is Gunther. He's the Intercontinental Champion and he's fantastic.
He and I have had a few run-ins, but this incarnation of him, and this one of me, I think, would be pretty fun," said Seth Rollins. The two stars are currently on separate brands and are involved in different rivalries.
