Wrestling Legend Raves About WWE Superstar’s “Through The Roof” Performances

Wrestling Legend Raves About WWE Superstar's

Gunther, despite losing his Intercontinental Championship to Sami Zayn at WrestleMania 40, has smoothly transitioned into the King of the Ring tournament, securing a victory in his inaugural match against the returning Sheamus on WWE Raw.

Former WCW star and wrestling legend Kevin Sullivan commended Gunther’s prowess on his “Tuesdays With the Taskmaster” podcast, expressing optimism about Gunther’s prospects in the tournament. Sullivan confidently asserted Gunther’s potential to clinch victory in the King of the Ring tournament, potentially earning a championship opportunity at WWE’s Bash in Berlin premium live event in August.

Describing Gunther as “hot” and “believable,” Sullivan emphasised the allure of Gunther’s matches, highlighting the magnetism of his in-ring presence and the potential for sold-out events wherever he competes.

Sullivan’s optimism extended to envisioning successful WWE events in Austria and Germany headlined by Gunther. He attributed this potential to Gunther’s resilience and exceptional performances, noting:

Boy, they just have to put Gunther’s name on there and whoever he’s wrestling, they’re going to sell that thing out. And maybe, because of the success they have, maybe they’ll be back at least twice a year. He gutted it out, turned WWE down and then he finally accepted and then they pushed him remarkably, and his performances have been through the roof.

Following his triumph over Sheamus, Gunther is poised to face the winner of the Kofi Kingston versus Rey Mysterio match, originally slated for Raw but moved to a WWE live event. A victory in this encounter would propel Gunther to the semi-finals, where he is scheduled to confront the winner of the bout between Ilja Dragunov and “Main Event” Jey Uso.
