Brock Lesnar Wants Gunther But Says He “Doesn’t Make The Calls” In WWE
Brock Lesnar would like an opportunity with the current Intercontinental Champion Gunther, but he knows it isn’t his decision to make.
In one of the most popular matches from the entire WrestleMania 39 weekend, Gunther retained his Intercontinental Championship in a triple-threat match which also featured Drew McIntyre and Sheamus. The match was the hard-hitting affair you’d expect from the three men involved, and once again cemented Gunther as a top-tier talent in WWE.
Earlier in the evening, Brock Lesnar had gone in to battle with Omos. The match proved to be one of the shortest of the weekend, and whilst Omos was in control during the early stages of the contest ‘The Beast Incarnate’ was able to overpower him with a German suplex and F5 to secure the victory.
There has been plenty of talk over recent weeks and months that the paths of Lesnar and Gunther need to cross at some point. Whilst it would seem both men are keen for the match to happen, Lesnar has admitted it won’t be his decision.
In a discussion with Daniel Cormier, Brock Lesnar admitted he liked the idea of facing Gunther, but was also excited for facing Omos, noting that he doesn’t call the shots when it comes to matches.
I do [regarding Gunther match]. I don’t really care… it was just proposed, and I don’t know if I don’t make the calls around here. It’s just one of those things. When this was proposed to me, I liked it because I like the challenge, and I like the matchup.
The Intercontinental Championship is one belt that Lesnar hasn’t helped, and whilst not specifically mentioning that belt he did note that he would like to have a belt in his possession one more time.
We all want to be a champion, but I don’t think at this point in my career that I really need it. I would like another opportunity at it. If things worked out that way, yeah. But things are crazy in this business.
On the Raw after WrestleMania, Cody Rhodes revealed that Brock Lesnar would be his tag partner against Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa – however, ‘The Beast Incarnate’ ended up turning on Rhodes, leaving him laying with an F5 on to the steel steps.
