In a SmackDown Exclusive, Gunther shared his thoughts on facing Orton.

“I sure will face Randy Orton tomorrow in the finals, and what an opportunity it is, right? What a chance. I came here to do this. I came here to be in the ring with the best of the best, and Randy is maybe one of the biggest legends that ever came out of WWE. But to become a legend myself, I gotta beat a legend tomorrow, and yeah, tomorrow, ‘The Ring General’ will officially become the King of the Ring," Gunther said.
