Gunther on WWE rumors and the Saudis buying WWE

In an interview with The Dallas Morning News, Gunther talked about the rumors related to WWE and the purchase by Saudi Arabia. “I mean, rumors are rumors. And at the end of the day, I’m not the CEO. I’m a wrestler.

So, I focus on what I do in the ring and leave the business to those who do business”. - he said, as quoted by Stephanie Mcmahon Stephanie McMahon's resignation is also one of the topics that is talked about a lot.

Gunther wished her the best. “To be fair, I only had very brief interactions with her. She’s always been very nice and very lovely. And yeah, I’m happy for her that she’s going to be able now to take time off and enjoy time with her family.

And yeah, I think you should be happy for anyone who’s in a position to do that. All the best to her”.


Winning the Intercontinental Championship is something special. Gunther just talked about it a couple of months ago on Steve Fall's Ten Count YouTube channel.

“When I hold a title, for me, it’s the most important title there is right now because I’m the champion. I don’t want to focus on any other title. I couldn’t care less about anything else. That’s what my focus is on right now.

With every defense, I try to contribute to its legacy. I want to put on the best matches possible for the fans and for the prestige of the title. That’s something I take pride in. It’s something I always did and I’m going to continue doing forward”.

NXT UK closure didn't faze him. “I got to be honest. No, I wasn’t really sad. I think it was a natural progression. I think it was great that it lasted through the pandemic. It was very difficult to do. Everybody put the work in to make it as good as possible, but for me, even when I started in NXT UK, I was always thinking it would be Europe-wide because at some point, a lot of the key players in NXT were not from the UK.

They were European. We had a bunch of Europeans that did really well. So I always wanted that progression to happen. I’m really excited for it”.
