During a recent appearance on the ‘My Love Letter to Wrestling’ podcast, Gunther was asked if Triple H & WWE are going to book the long awaited dream match between him and ‘The Beast’ Brock Lesnar for a future UK event.
Here’s what the current Intercontinental Champion answered:
“That moment with Brock (at Royal Rumble 2023) was all I needed. I don’t think we needed to have lots of action going on with him, get into a little scuffle and stuff, just the moment and the crowd reaction for that, it was all I needed.
Just see how people…on the internet, you read stuff and people get easily excited, but often, the hype from online doesn’t translate to the venue.
When that happened, I was like, compared to the US, especially in England, people understand competition.
They tend to look at the match and take it as a competition and then emotionally react to it, rather than expecting the fireworks right away.
I hope. The thing is, who knows. We had great success as Clash At The Castle, and now coming back with Money In The Bank, I’m hoping this is something that becomes a tradition where they venture out to Europe for the big events.
The response is great and we get the chance more often.”
WALTER joined WWE NXT UK in 2019 and ended up holding the NXT United Kingdom Championship for 870 days, thus making him the longest title holder in the (now defunct) championship’s legacy.
In January 2022, he was renamed Gunther and eventually debuted on the WWE main roster (SmackDown) in April, before winning the Intercontinental Championship in June 2022 and is still the champion to this day.
