In the riveting aftermath of SummerSlam, WWE Universe was abuzz with anticipation and excitement, and it reached its zenith when Chad Gable emerged as the next contender to GUNTHER's WWE Intercontinental Championship. On the latest episode of RAW, Gable showcased his wrestling prowess by winning a nail-biting Fatal 4 Way.
His formidable competitors - Matt Riddle, Ricochet, and Tommaso Ciampa - all brought their A-game, but it was Ciampa who fell to Gable's skillful maneuvers and got pinned. While WWE has kept fans on their toes about when Gable will challenge GUNTHER for the title, enthusiasts of the sport can't help but remember their previous face-off.
It was only a week ago on RAW that Gable, the headstrong leader of the Alpha Academy, endured an intense 5-minute challenge against the "Ring General" GUNTHER. But Gable, displaying his never-give-up attitude, refused to accept the loss.
He insisted on a rematch, which saw GUNTHER emerge victorious.
Gable vs. GUNTHER: Collision Course
This rivalry between Imperium and Alpha Academy took another twist on RAW. The tension mounted when Imperium's Ludwig Kaiser tried persuading Maxxine Dupri backstage, urging her to abandon Otis, the "monstrous beast" she's associated with.
However, before things could escalate, Otis intervened. This set the stage for a thrilling bout between Kaiser and Otis. But with a twist in the tale, interference by GUNTHER and Giovanni Vinci led to Kaiser's victory. The drama didn't end there - Imperium went on to triple team on Otis.
It was Gable, always the hero, who dashed in to rescue his teammate. The night ended with an electrifying face-off between Gable and GUNTHER, with fans passionately chanting "Gable!" GUNTHER, the undisputed Intercontinental champion, has been reigning supreme, with his title run now stretching to an impressive 423 days.
At SummerSlam, he successfully defended his title against Drew McIntyre, further stamping his authority. Chad Gable, too, had a remarkable run during the Slim Jim Battle Royal. He brilliantly ousted both Kaiser and Vinci and was among the last five standing.
As the story unfolds, all eyes are set on when Gable will challenge GUNTHER. The impending clash promises to be a treat for WWE fans, as two of the industry's finest talents are set to collide. Given the history, intensity, and emotions involved, this is one contest that no WWE aficionado would want to miss.
