Gunther wants to face off against Brock Lesnar.
Since joining the main roster earlier this year, Gunther has already fulfilled plenty of dream matches as he has faced off against stars like Rey Mysterio and Sheamus. The current Intercontinental Champion has still yet to stand across from the ring from other SmackDown talent such as Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre.
Despite having a plethora of talent that he has yet to lock up with, Gunther has a specific dream opponent in mind. In a new interview with WMBD News, the Imperium front man was asked to reveal what his current dream match is.
"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.”
Gunther has praised Lesnar on multiple occasions in the past, calling him the smartest and best wrestler in the world.
Lesnar was last seen in the WWE at the recent Crown Jewel premium live event. During that show, Lesnar defeated Bobby Lashley in a singles bout. To learn more, click here.
