GUNTHER Hits Major WWE Milestone On The Road To Honky Tonk Man’s Record WWE

WWE Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER has now reached a major milestone on the road to the Honky Tonk Man’s record.

With GUNTHER’s current title run fast approaching the record for the longest Intercontinental Title reign ever, many fans have predicted that the Ring General will soon break this record.

Ahead of then, GUNTHER has now risen another rung on the Intercontinental Championship reign ladder.

With GUNTHER winning the gold on the June 10, 2022 edition of SmackDown, as of Sunday (August 13), the Austrian star has held the title for 429 days.

This means that last week, GUNTHER’s reign passed Pedro Morales’ 424 day stint with the gold from November 1981 to January 1983.

It also means that GUNTHER is the second-longest reigning Intercontinental Champion ever.

The only individual to have held the title for longer than GUNTHER is the Honky Tonk Man.

The WWE legend was Intercontinental Champion for 454 days between June 1987 and August 1988.

To break the Honky Tonk Man’s record and reach a 455 day reign, GUNTHER will have to hold his gold until at least September 7.

GUNTHER most recently defended his Intercontinental Title against Drew McIntyre at SummerSlam.

The Ring General’s next challenger has now been revealed, which you can read about right here.
