WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther would like to face Brock Lesnar.

“I hope so. I hope anyway, this is successful now, and it becomes a little of a tradition. In Europe overall, they come back once a year or something like that with an event like that," Gunther said.

When again asked about potentially facing Lesnar, he replied, “It would be great. I think he’s a fantastic wrestler and I hope to get in the ring with him."

Lesnar last appeared on WWE programming at SummerSlam, where he unsuccessfully challenged Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in a Last Man Standing match.
