Former WWE manager Jim Cornette has explained why he thinks GUNTHER should get the better of Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 39.
It was reported by WrestlingNews.Co that a source familiar with WWE’s creative plans has said that Brock Lesnar vs. GUNTHER is one of the matches listed internally for WrestleMania 39, which takes place on April 1st and 2nd at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.
Lesnar has main evented five WrestleManias in his legendary career and if Lesnar competes at WrestleMania 39, it will be 20 years after his first WrestleMania event in 2003 when he won the WWE Title from Kurt Angle in the main event of WrestleMania 19. Whereas his potential opponent GUNTHER is yet to compete on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
Speaking on his Experience podcast, Jim Cornette explained that if the match does take place he thinks the Ring General should defeat Lesnar:
“I’ve talked about in the past, that would be a great matchup, and it would help GUNTHER especially if Brock is into it, and works on getting him over. But they’re really, even though they’re completely different people and completely different styles, et cetera, et cetera, they’re two of the only guys in the WWE that really should work with each other because they’re two of the only guys that are never phony or goofy or winking at people. They’re completely legitimate in how they act as themselves and what they do.”
“Everybody knows that Brock’s the real deal, which has enhanced his you know, reputation and aura and, as Finkel would say, demeanour. And GUNTHER, I’ve said is the most perfect wrestler in the business today for wrestling and working and talking and doing things that he should do if he was really who he is purported to be. And they’re both physical, and they can both hit and they can both work.”
“I think it would be great and that could elevate especially, I know they don’t do it often, but they have had Brock do a job or two and I would f*cking have Brock Lesnar put GUNTHER over. And I think that would be a big f*cking deal.”
