Roman Reigns, widely regarded as the apex competitor in WWE, may have to wait a little longer for a highly anticipated clash with one of the promotion's top stars. Despite the allure of facing off against "The Tribal Chief," the current Intercontinental Champion, GUNTHER, seems content with allowing the feud to unfold at its own pace.
Patient Approach: GUNTHER's Stance on Roman Reigns Feud
As Roman Reigns approaches the incredible milestone of 1000 days as the WWE Universal Champion, a title he also holds alongside the WWE Championship as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, GUNTHER believes there is no urgency to arrange a match between the two powerhouses shortly.
Since his arrival on the WWE main roster in April 2022, GUNTHER has been a force to be reckoned with. His winning streak has been remarkable, culminating in his capture of the Intercontinental Championship in June 2022. For nearly a year, GUNTHER has dispatched every opponent placed in his path, including esteemed former WWE World/Universal Champions like Sheamus, Drew McIntyre, Braun Strowman, and Rey Mysterio, among others.
During an interview with Mike Jones on DC101, GUNTHER was probed about the possibility of a future match or feud with Roman Reigns. He responded, "I think there's no rush with that. I think he's doing his thing right now, and I'm very focused on doing my thing.
I didn't want to seek out that confrontation yet, but as you said, it's one of the matches fans are looking forward to down the line." In the immediate future, GUNTHER has other challenges to overcome. This Saturday, May 27th, at WWE Night of Champions, he will defend his hard-earned Intercontinental Title against the formidable Mustafa Ali.
This matchup promises to electrify fans around the world. Concurrently, Roman Reigns will not put his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship on the line. Instead, he will join forces with Solo Sikoa to face off against the reigning WWE Tag Team Champions Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens.
Reigns is undoubtedly determined to further bolster his championship collection with this high-stakes tag team encounter. As WWE enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the potential clash between GUNTHER and Roman Reigns, both superstars are willing to exercise patience, allowing their paths to intersect organically.
While their confrontation may not be imminent, the anticipation surrounding this dream match continues to build among devoted wrestling fans worldwide.
