Gunther had a generation-defining 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 lost the title to Ilja Dragunov at NXT TakeOver 36. He also wants a storyline with Roman Reigns.

Gunther finally made his way 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. Since then, he has been competing at a very high level. While speaking with WittyWhittier, Gunther was asked if he would like to have a storyline with any WWE talent. The Austrian giant made it clear he wants a storyline with Roman Reigns.

“I don’t have a list for that, but let’s say it’s Roman Reigns. Yes.”


Gunther also defended his title against Shinsuke Nakamura in a solid match on Smackdown last week. We will have to wait and see whether he will have a feud with Roman Reigns in the future or not.
