GUNTHER still wants to wrestle Brock Lesnar and hopes WWE will eventually came into his demands and give him what he wants.
For several months now there have been rumors that GUNTHER was on a shortlist of possible opponents for Brock Lesnar on a major show. These rumors came after GUNTHER referred to Lesnar as his idea of a “final boss” in wrestling and expressed strong interest in facing Lesnar one-on-one.
This match has yet to materialize but GUNTHER is still doing whatever he can to keep the idea in fans’ minds so that, with time, there will be enough interest that WWE will give it the green light.
Speaking on My Love Letter to Wrestling with Mark Andrews, GUNTHER discussed his initial encounter with Lesnar at the 2023 Royal Rumble and how that was the impetus he needed to start pushing for a match with him.
“That moment with Brock was all I needed. I don’t think we needed to have lots of action going on with him, get into a little scuffle and stuff, just the moment and the crowd reaction for that, it was all I needed.
Just see how people…on the internet, you read stuff and people get easily excited, but often, the hype from online doesn’t translate to the venue.
When that happened, I was like, compared to the US, especially in England, people understand competition. They tend to look at the match and take it as a competition and then emotionally react to it, rather than expecting the fireworks right away.”
Additionally, GUNTHER is being optimistic that, with Triple H in charge of WWE’s creative, this match will indeed come to fruition when WWE comes to the UK for Money in the Bank.
“I hope. The thing is, who knows. We had great success as Clash at the Castle, and now coming back with Money in the Bank, I’m hoping this is something that becomes a tradition where they venture out to Europe for the big events. The response is great and we get the chance more often.”
Furthermore, Lesnar also appears to be game for this match, but said that it’s not his call if he faces GUNTHER or not.
