Sheamus has now reacted to GUNTHER’s recent comments about him, sharing one last message for Drew McIntyre ahead of SummerSlam 2023.
At Saturday’s (August 5) event, McIntyre will challenge for GUNTHER’s Intercontinental Championship.
This will be the second time this year that McIntyre has challenged for the gold, with McIntyre and Sheamus battling GUNTHER at WrestleMania 39.
In a recent interview with Sportskeeda, GUNTHER argued that Sheamus’ weakness is the fact that he’s not focused enough on his goals.
“His weakness is nothing really in the ring. He’s weakness is up here (mind) and in the heart. He’s got a soft heart, he doesn’t have mind strength, and he seems frustrated.
“I see him popping up on Twitter every second day, making comments. I don’t think he’s focused enough on what he really wants and tries to figure out different ways to reach his goal.”
Sheamus has now replied to GUNTHER’s comments, naturally on Twitter, telling Drew McIntyre to end GUNTHER’s historic IC Title reign.
Sharing a GIF of the Honky Tonk Man, Sheamus wrote:
Protect this man’s legacy at all costs @DMcIntyreWWE …
or i will
GUNTHER is currently recognised as the third longest reigning Intercontinental Champion of all time, holding the gold for 421 days.
It has been heavily speculated that GUNTHER will break the Honky Tonk Man’s 454 day record to become the longest reigning WWE Intercontinental Champion of all time.
To break this record, GUNTHER will need to hold his title until at least September 7.
Sheamus recently called WWE out for wasting his momentum following his excellent match against GUNTHER at Clash At The Castle in September 2022, which you can read more about right here.
Protect this man’s legacy at all costs @DMcIntyreWWE…
