WrestleMania 40 spelled the end of Gunther's reign as WWE Intercontinental Champion. Sami Zayn was able to oust Gunther and snatch the WWE Intercontinental Championship during an electric showdown at WrestleMania 40, bringing Gunther's historic reign since its revival in June 2022 as the longest-reigning holder from its previous history.

With Chad Gable guiding at ringside, Zayn was relentless and determined with talent until he got past Gunther by using a defining series of Helluva Kicks. Despite the setback, Gunther, known as 'The Ring General', remains optimistic about his future in WWE.

Shortly after the match, he took to social media to reflect on his journey and share a poignant moment from the event a photo capturing Zayn executing a brainbuster. Beside the snap, Gunther left a thought-provoking note: "The higher you climb, the harder you fall Sky is the limit!" That quote seemed to echo in volumes not only towards his nature but also to that burning aspiration to climb ranks in wrestling.
