Gunther Reveals Which Top WWE Stars He Wants To Face WWE

Gunther has revealed which top WWE stars he wants to face.

Since getting called up to the WWE main roster in 2022, Gunther has become one of the fastest rising stars in the company. Holding the Intercontinental Championship for over 260 days, “The Ring General” has already provided WWE fans with a litany of great matches against the likes of Sheamus and Ricochet.

Appearing on Cheap Heat with Peter Rosenberg, Gunther discussed the possibility of facing 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes. He said:

“I do understand why he’s the man right now. He carries himself in a great way. He’s an absolute professional, I think his backstory is phenomenal. I wish him all the best in whatever he does now, but in the end, I think we’re gonna cross paths again and I’m excited for that.”

Rhodes and Gunther were the final two participants in the 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble match with the Intercontinental Champion lasting a record 71 minutes in the bout before Cody eliminated him.

Another top WWE star that Gunther’s name has discussed with has been Brock Lesnar. Recent reports and rumors have said that the two men were discussed for having a potential WrestleMania 39 match.

On the possibility of wrestling Brock Lesnar, Gunther said:

“I think that moment that we had in the Rumble was because that was all I needed out of it. It was basically like a real life confirmation that the audience is up for that. They want to see it.”

“When I watched him when he started with WWE, he was always the most impressive guy to me, an absolute beast.”

“Then I saw his stuff in Japan, the UFC, and then he came back and has been on top since then. One of the best wrestlers to ever do it in my mind. Just for that reason, I want to be able to prove myself against him.”
