WWE Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER, renowned for his record-breaking title reign, recently addressed speculation regarding his future in a conversation with WrestlingNews.co's Steve Fall. Despite his historic achievements, GUNTHER downplayed the possibility of headlining WrestleMania 40 with the Intercontinental belt, citing the prestige of the WWE Universal and World Heavyweight championships.
GUNTHER's reign as the Intercontinental Champion has been nothing short of extraordinary, setting a new benchmark in WWE history. His dominance in the ring and captivating presence have led to discussions about his potential ascension to the main event scene, competing against the likes of top-tier WWE Superstars.
The Ring General, while acknowledging the significance of his current title, expressed a readiness to explore new horizons. "That's not gonna happen," GUNTHER said, referring to the WrestleMania main event idea. He praised Seth Rollins' current trajectory and acknowledged Roman Reigns' position at the pinnacle of WWE.
"The Intercontinental champion, which is the number two title on Raw, obviously I give it my best and I do everything I can to make it feel like the number one. But I think there’s a ranking system and everything for a reason.
I think it’s quite obvious that I outgrew the Intercontinental Championship already. I am ready to make that next step”.
