In the realm of WWE, few have showcased dominance quite like Gunther, the current Intercontinental Champion. His reign, marked by a string of victories since his decisive win over Ricochet on WWE SmackDown on June 10, 2022, has not only been impressive but historic.

Gunther, known as "The Ring General," has now etched his name in the annals of WWE history as the longest-reigning Intercontinental Champion. His tenure as champion has been characterized by an undeniable ferocity, setting him apart as one of the most formidable titleholders in recent times.

On a recent episode of "Under the Ring," hosted by Phil Strum, Gunther discussed his future aspirations in the wrestling world. Acknowledging the inevitability of his reign's end, he expressed a keen interest in advancing his career.

"Obviously, there's room to grow," he stated. "And whenever the time comes that I lose the title — and the time will come, because nothing lasts forever — that's obviously the next logical step, I feel like. There's a lot of room to grow into." Gunther's gaze is firmly set on the World Heavyweight Championship, currently held by Seth "Freakin'" Rollins, and the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, in the grasp of Roman Reigns.

While he has had limited in-ring encounters with these champions, primarily at house shows with Rollins, the potential matchups are tantalizing prospects for fans and pundits alike.

Gunther's Future Showdowns

Gunther spoke of the contrasting styles and challenges each champion would present.

"Those two guys, yeah, I think it's very different," he reflected. "I feel like, style-wise, a match with Seth would match better with me. But also, I think, being in the ring with Roman are completely new challenges. I think I'm more similar to Roman than I am to Seth as a wrestler, but yeah," he concluded, "Both would be fantastic match-ups, and the challenger would be happy to take on." As Gunther's historic Intercontinental Championship reign continues, the wrestling community eagerly anticipates his next steps.

Whether facing Rollins or Reigns, the future looks bright for this powerhouse, promising exhilarating matches and further cementing his legacy in WWE lore.
