• Old WWE Management Was Planning To Bury Gunther After July 4th Episode Of RAW
On July 4th, SmackDown’s Intercontinental Champion Gunther appeared on RAW and attacked R-Truth, who was dressed as Uncle Sam.
According to WrestleVotes, the old WWE Management didn’t like Gunther’s performance during this segment and were planning to bury him:
“Following his appearance on RAW on 7/4, those in power at the time really soured on Gunther for whatever ridiculous reason.
To the point where a burial on TV was coming. Just a month later and quite the difference…”
The Intercontinental Championship wasn’t given much focus in recent years, but Triple H wants to bring back prestige to the mid-card titles again.
In the main event of last Friday’s SmackDown, Gunther defeated Shinsuke Nakamura to retain the Intercontinental Title. Many fans thought this was the best Intercontinental Title match in a while.
