GUNTHER Talks Rumors On Match With John Cena At WWE WrestleMania

GUNTHER, who is the reigning WWE Intercontinental Champion as well as the longest-reigning WWE NXT UK Champion, spoke with Steve Fall of NBC’s Ten Count on several topics related to pro wrestling such as the WWE Intercontinental Championship being the most important title in the company right now because he is the current champion and how he doesn’t want to focus on any other title.

This is what GUNTHER said:

“When I hold a title, for me, it’s the most important title there is right now because I’m the champion. I don’t want to focus on any other title. I couldn’t care less about anything else. That’s what my focus is on right now. With every defense, I try to contribute to its legacy. I want to put on the best matches possible for the fans and for the prestige of the title. That’s something I take pride in. It’s something I always did and I’m going to continue doing forward.”

GUNTHER also talked about if he was sad the moment NXT UK closed down and how excited he is for WWE’s NXT Europe.

This is what GUNTHER said:

“I got to be honest. No, I wasn’t really sad. I think it was a natural progression. I think it was great that it lasted through the pandemic. It was very difficult to do. Everybody put the work in to make it as good as possible, but for me, even when I started in NXT UK, I was always thinking it would be Europe-wide because at some point, a lot of the key players in NXT were not from the UK. They were European. We had a bunch of Europeans that did really well. So I always wanted that progression to happen. I’m really excited for it.”

GUNTHER then talked about the rumors of him facing WWE legend and 16-time World Champion John Cena at WWE WrestleMania 39.

This is what GUNTHER said:

“Of course, we could see it. I don’t know what’s going to happen or if it’s going to happen. Obviously, that’s something I would love to do. John Cena is one of the legends. Because he’s not really active at the moment anymore, he just pops up, but when he does, if the chance is there for me, I’ll gladly take it. One of, if not the most popular babyface in this sport of all time. I think I would be a great counterpart to that. I would love to do it.”
