Gunther Is Proud Of The Work He Has Put In To Elevate The Intercontinental Championship

Gunther is proud of the work he has put in to elevate the Intercontinental Championship.

Gunther is currently the Intercontinental Champion, and has held the title for over 500 days. That being said, he has even admitted that he has outgrown the championship, signifying his desire to chase the world titles of the promotion.

Speaking to Phil Strum on Under The Ring, Gunther was asked about his Intercontinental Championship run, noting that he is happy with the work he has put in.

“The work and performances that I put into my reign is what makes my reign special. That basically sums it up. It’s one of the most prestigious titles that has lost a lot of steam in the last years. On one hand, it’s on management to decide how prominent the title should feature. On the other hand, it’s on the champion to put in the performances that forces management to represent the title prominently. I’m very proud of the work I’ve put into it. I’m still in the middle of it, a lot of records have been broken along the way. The status it has right now and what makes it special is because I’m the champion and I’ve put the work in,” 


Gunther is set to defend his Intercontinental Championship at Survivor Series when he takes on The Miz in a one on one match.
