Gunther has been rising up the ranks for many years. Now he’s finally a consistent part of WWE SmackDown, and continues to get better and better over time. Formerly known as Walter, Gunther was already a huge name in the indie circuit before coming to WWE NXT. He made quite a transformation after arriving in Vince McMahon’s company.

The SmackDown superstar and current WWE Intercontinental Champion received massive props from Drew McIntyre for being force of nature. While he looks absolutely fierce now, that wasn’t always the case.

Gunther has a lot of fans on social media. One of them took to Reddit in order to do show two side-by-side pictures of Gunther, four years apart. While from his Walter days, Gunther didn’t look so intimidating. However, Gunther’s current rendition is absolutely incredible.

The WWE superstar’s fans expressed their own in comments. They focused on how tremendously he’s improved himself. Some even brought up The American Nightmare Cody Rhodes in comparison.


Gunther already has a potential feud with Sheamus. The WWE veteran recently expressed that he would love to just slap Gunther around. While WWE is feeling the Gunther high currently, the superstar is shaping up to be one of the strongest faces in the company.
