• Brock Lesnar Is Currently Scheduled To Face SmackDown Star At WrestleMania 39
According to Wrestlingnewsco, Brock Lesnar vs. Gunther at WrestleMania 39 is currently listed internally in WWE.
Gunther is the Intercontinental Champion right now on SmackDown and there’s no word on if he’ll still be the champion heading into WrestleMania Hollywood.
During a recent interview with WMBD TV, Gunther had the following to say about the possibility of facing The Beast:
“If I had to pin it down to one name, I’d say it’s Brock Lesnar at the moment. When I was young and watching WWE, I enjoyed watching his matches.
Later on when I progressed in my career, I was able to watch wrestling and analyze how people work. He’s always been somebody I was impressed with. He’s one of the best to ever do it.
I think that’s the biggest possible challenge for me at the moment.”
Lesnar is expected to finish his feud with Bobby Lashley at Royal Rumble 2023.
On this Friday’s SmackDown, Gunther will defend the Intercontinental Title against the World Cup winner, Ricochet.
