In a conversation with Ariel Helwani, Gunther talked about his experience in the main roster and what emotions he feels about it; “It’s been good, right? I usually don’t go into things with lots of expectations.
I just went with what they offered me more or less, and tried to make the best out of it so far. I’m very pleased with how things happened and where we’re heading”. - he said, as quoted by pwmania.com Gunther didn't have any specific goals after he became part of the big story.
Even as a boy, he fantasized about becoming a professional wrestler and making a living from it. Now that he has reached that stage, he wants his adventure to last for a long time. “No. That’s in general for me. I think that’s where it’s different for myself than with most of my colleagues now.
My goal in my life was always, I want to make a living off being a wrestler. That’s my goal and I achieved that, like, I don’t know, six or seven years ago”. - Gunther continued.
Changing his name from Walter to Gunther caused various reactions.
However, Gunther did not pay much attention to it. “I wasn’t too worried about it. Walter is my real name, so at some point, they will have an interest to change it and make it their own. I think if it would have been the other way around and Gunther would be my real name, they would change it to Walter and I would have had the exact same reaction.
I think people like to jump on things, almost like a collective panic, and people, they join in. Even if other people that are restless make comments or something, it’s, I don’t know. I worry about myself and if they feel the need to express worry about me, that’s nice of them, but I don’t think there’s any need to worry about anything”.
