• Wrestling Legend Advises WWE To Protect Gunther

During a recent interview on Smack Talk, Old School WWF Manager Uncle Zebekiah (Zeb Colter aka Dutch Mantell) spoke about the recent booking of Intercontinental Champion Gunther (fka WALTER), who reformed his former NXT faction Imperium at the Clash at the Castle PLE.

Mantell made it clear that WWE should protect Gunther in their future booking, because he sees great potential in him, to make the promotion a lot of money.

Here’s what Dutch had to say about the Imperium vs. Sheamus’ Brawling Brutes match on the latest episode of SmackDown:

“Ain’t not a dime in those guys! There is money in Gunther. Keep him alive. And I think Sheamus, you know, him and Gunther went at it one time, but at the end, Sheamus was not even seen. That’s why he went backward, and I think Gunther went a little bit backward because you’ve got to protect assets like that. You just can’t throw him out there.

To me, you just can’t throw them out there in a six-man tag and expect them to keep their steam because there was nothing for him to keep his steam on here. I’m talking from a booking point of view.

That’s what I’m thinking. But you’re right; when they got into the ring, it got electric because they remembered Clash at the Castle. What a match they had! I mean, a brutal match, but this didn’t even come close to it.”
