Gunther Hopes WWE Is Interested In Having Him Face Brock Lesnar In The UK

Gunther still hopes to clash with Brock Lesnar at some point.

Gunther and Brock Lesnar shared a moment at the WWE Royal Rumble as the two men squared off in the middle of the men's Royal Rumble bout. Fans came to their feet and cheered as they went face-to-face, but the action never picked up between the two.

"That moment with Brock was all I needed," Gunther said on My Love Letter to Wrestling with Mark Andrews. "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."

When asked if Triple H might have interest in booking a match against Brock in the UK, Gunther replied, "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."

Gunther is the reigning WWE Intercontinental Champion. He successfully defended the title at WWE Night of Champions against Mustafa Ali.

Meanwhile, Lesnar defeated Cody Rhodes at WWE Night of Champions.
