Brock Lesnar is one of the biggest names in all of sports, and it’s reasonable to assume he has a huge target on his back. Now, one of WWE’s current champions has admitted that Lesnar is in his crosshairs.
Gunther established himself as an unstoppable force within the WWE. He is currently the reigning WWE Intercontinental Champion and is currently on his 232nd day with the title.
Gunther recently defended his title against Braun Strowman on the January 13 episode of WWE SmackDown. It seems defeating a monster isn’t enough for Gunther, he wants to get his hands on The Beast.
Gunther appeared recently Team Battle and Eli on the Battleground Podcast. When asked about his feelings on getting in the ring with The Beast Incarnate, Gunther had this to say.
“Yes, of course, it would be nice to have a chance to prove myself in that situation. When I started as a wrestler and came back to wrestling, I always watched Brock’s matches because they were great, they just stood out. There is no one like him. I always like those characters. Most of the people doing this are successful, there are no copies. He’s always been a great wrestler and as I’ve grown in my career, I’ve been able to analyze the act and understand the psychology and stuff. You can say he is one of the best ever. If I get a chance to get in the ring with him, I will gladly take it.”
This isn’t the first time Gunther has praised Brock Lesnar. Gunther previously stated that Beast Incarnate would be the biggest hurdle to overcome in WWE.
