Gunther had an amazing run in NXT UK as he became the longest-reigning champion in modern WWE by holding the NXT UK Title for a record 870 days. He dropped the title to Ilja Dragunov at NXT TakeOver 36. He also made a bold proclamation about himself.

Gunther finally came to the US as part of the NXT roster as well. Gunther and Ludwig Kaiser made their main roster debut on Friday Night Smackdown earlier this year.

Gunther also won the Intercontinental Championship back in June. The former WALTER recently took to Twitter and boldly proclaimed himself as a pro wrestling champion.

PRO WRESTLING CHAMPION

It is to be noted that pro wrestling was previously banned in WWE due to Vince McMahon, who expressly called it ‘sports entertainment.’ Times have truly changed in WWE and fans are excited for what is next.
