Gunther would love the opportunity to face Brock Lesnar.
Gunther is the reigning and defending WWE Intercontinental Champion, having held the title for over 200 days. He most recently defeated Braun Strowman on the January 13 episode of WWE SmackDown.
After defeating a monster, Gunther would welcome a bout against The Beast.
"Yeah, definitely," Gunther replied when asked if he'd like to face Brock Lesnar while speaking with Tim Battle & Eli on the Battleground Podcast "To get the opportunity to prove myself in that scenario would be fantastic. When I started as a wrestler and got back into wrestling, I always watched Brock's matches because they are fantastic, they stand out right away. There is nobody like him. I always like those characters. Most of the people doing this who are successful, there is no copy of them. He's always been a great wrestler, and from when I grew older in my career, I was able to analyze the work and understand the psychology and stuff. You can tell he's one of the best to ever do it. If I get a chance to get in the ring with him, I would gladly take it."
Lesnar hasn't wrestled since WWE Crown Jewel 2022 when he defeated Bobby Lashley. It is unknown when he will return to the ring.
Gunther currently has his sights set on winning the Royal Rumble after declaring for the match on WWE SmackDown. Fans can check out the full lineup for WWE Royal Rumble by clicking here.
