WWE superstar Gunther is currently in the middle of an emphatic run as the WWE Intercontinental Champion. He has retained the title against the likes of Rey Mysterio, Sheamus, Ricochet, Braun Strowman, and many more.
There have been recent rumors about Gunther possibly facing Brock Lesnar in the near future. In an interview with Battleground Podcast, Gunther addressed whether he would like to go one-on-one against The Beast Incarnate in 2023.
“Oh yeah. I mean definitely. That’s like to get the opportunity to prove myself and that’s the narrative it would be fantastic. And, yeah, I always, when I started out as a wrestler and I got back into watching wrestling again I always watched Brock’s matches becasue they’ve been fantastic. It was a standout right away. It’s nobody like him. I always like those characters,” he said.
Further in the interview, he also heaped praise on Brock Lesnar as a wrestler. He also stated that facing the beast would be a great chance to prove himself.
“He’s always been a great wrestler and from when I grew older in my career and I was able to analyze the work and understand that psychology and stuff like that I think you can tell that he’s one of the best to ever do it. So, if I get a chance to get in the ring with him I would gladly take that. Yeah, prove myself,” he added.
