Gunther has his mind set on a future WWE bout with “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar.
WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther was a recent guest on The Rob Brown Show to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked about facing off with Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble, Gunther admitted that while he’s an end boss for many, Lesnar could potentially be his end boss in WWE.
“Yeah, of course, I wanted to. Brock is a one-in-a-million guy or one in ten million. I always liked those guys that have stood out from the pack,” GUNTHER said. “When I stopped watching wrestling for a while when I was a teenager, and then I got back into it again when I started training, there was a time when Brock was young, but he was wrestling Eddie [Guerrero] and Big Show and Kurt Angle.
“The guy was fantastic, a beast. I always loved his matches and was always very impressed with that. Also, with the recent years in WWE, I always thought it would be a thing for wrestling and my style; that’s my end boss if that makes sense. I get portrayed as the end boss in wrestling for a lot of guys, but I think Brock could be my end boss. I really hope the match goes down at some point.”
When asked if Brock Lesnar is his dream opponent, Gunther admitted there’s a lot of exciting matches for him out there, but Lesnar is his benchmark.
“Of course,” Gunther said. “But to be fair, there’s so many exciting matches out there that would be cool for me individually. But yeah, just nail it down as like, what’s my benchmark? That’s it.”
