If Roman Reigns, WWE Undisputed Champion of Raw and Smackdown, reigns on both rosters as world champion, in the respective rosters there is also a second-level champion for each brand, we are talking about Austin Theory as US Champion at Raw, and Gunther as Intercontinental Champion on SmackDown.
The latter received a really important push especially after the return of Triple H as head of the creative team, going so far as to destroy Shelton Benjamin's record as the longest-lasting Intercontinental Champion in the history of the Stamford company.
But perhaps that belt could soon be a little too tight for him, because according to an indiscretion from WrestleVotes who spoke to GiveMeSport, everyone would be so in love with his work that Triple H could soon give him one of the two world belts when they are separated again: “Triple H loves it.
Everyone loves him since he showed off in Clash at the Castle. I'm not just talking about Triple H, Road Dogg loves him, Jason Jordan really likes him. Once WWE wins two world titles, the number of people in the main event doubles.
Gunther is ready to step forward. I expect to see him at the top of the list by summer. I wouldn't be surprised if he wins a world title. He could be next on the list."
Gunther has his dream match ready
During a recent interview on the After The Bell podcast, Gunther said: "When I learned that the final scenario of the Royal Rumble match would have to see a match between me and Cody, I knew exactly what was going to happen.
He has been missing for a while and there was so much enthusiasm. Since he's gone I've been able to work my way up and try to bring him back as best I can. I think he's one of those guys that I can have amazing matches with anywhere.
I think I'd be ready to fight against him, that would be nice. If it happened in Europe, obviously even better." Recall that Cody Rhodes will challenge Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39 precisely to try to become the new undisputed champion, but it is not excluded that the belt will then be divided again between WWE and the Universal Championship.
WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther recently opened up on his name change after joining the main roster. "I guessed it. Walter is my real name. And from the side of the company, it makes a lot more sense if you can actually have some ownership over the name of an athlete that you present or put out there to an audience. So I kinda expected it. But it was fine for me," said Gunther.
