Brock Lesnar is a dream opponent of sorts for one of the most successful stars in WWE today.
When it comes to the most dominant superstars in present-day WWE, GUNTHER is right near the top of the list. After all, the current Intercontinental Champion has held the championship since June, which came just two months after he made his WWE main roster debut.
Since winning the Intercontinental Title, GUNTHER has beaten several big names in WWE including the critically-acclaimed match against Sheamus at Clash at the Castle last September.
GUNTHER has also had successful Intercontinental Title defenses against Rey Mysterio, Ricochet and he also defeated the ‘Monster of All Monsters’ Braun Strowman on the most recent Smackdown episode from January 13th.
During a recent appearance on the Tim Battle & Eli on the Battleground Podcast, GUNTHER spoke fondly about potentially facing former WWE and Universal Champion Brock Lesnar.
“Yeah, definitely. 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.”
In December 2022, Brock Lesnar and GUNTHER were rumored to face off at WrestleMania 39 although it’s not known if WWE is really going to do it or if it’s just a rumor at this point.
Brock Lesnar hasn’t wrestled in WWE since Crown Jewel on November 5th when he defeated Bobby Lashley. There are rumors that Lesnar may face Lashley again at some point in 2023 since they are 1-1 in matches at this point.
