Wade Barrett: Hell No I'm Not Getting In The Ring With Gunther, I Can Promise You That

Wade Barrett will leave the dream matches to WWE 2K23.

Wade Barrett had a very successful WWE career in between the ropes and was a multi-time WWE Intercontinental Champion. The current Intercontinental Champion is Gunther, and Wade Barrett is now a commentator for WWE. Both men possess a hard-hitting style, and Gunther is a natural dream match for fans should Barrett ever return to the ring.

However, while he says he's feeling pretty good, the 2015 WWE King of the Ring has no interest in facing Gunther, even if he was wrestling again.

"No, no surgeries on the horizon. I'm feeling pretty good," Barrett said on the Even Stronger podcast with Kazeem Famuyide. "Now, of course, this is when people start messaging me, 'Hey when are you getting back in the ring? How about Gunther?' Hell no! I'm not getting in the ring with Gunther I can promise you that."

There you have it. Wade Barrett is perfectly fine watching Gunther from the commentary desk.

Gunther recently broke the record for the longest-running WWE Intercontinental Championship reign of all time. Fans can read his thoughts on breaking that record here.
