The Ring General had recently stated that his encounter with Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble gave him confirmation that the WWE Universe too is rooting for the match to happen.
According to a recent report by Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Gunther vs. Brock Lesnar can surely happen in future, with the possibility being very high. However, Gunther needs another year to prove his worth as a threat to Lesnar in order for a match against him.
Gunther has certainly cemented himself as one of the top in-ring performers of the current generation. The Ring General, having given five-star performances in the past, can add another feather to his cap if his match against Lesnar happens in the future.
The Ring General will defend his Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania, with his opponent yet to be determined. With Sheamus and McIntyre pinning simultaneously last week, the no. 1, the two were in conflict with each other regarding who will face Gunther at WrestleMania. However this week’s Friday night SmackDown will determine the winner between the two.
