Gunther used to be known as WALTER during his NXT UK days and had a history-making run as the NXT UK Champion. He lost the title to Ilja Dragunov at NXT TakeOver 36, something truly shocked fans. Now that he’s on the WWE main roster, WALTER has a new name and a killer direction.
After making his way to Friday Night Smackdown, Gunther eventually won the Intercontinental Championship and has competed in excellent matches since then. He also had a solid match against Sheamus at WWE Clash At The Castle.
While speaking on Jim Cornette’s Drive-Thru show, Jim Cornette gave huge props to Gunther’s presentation and said that watching the Intercontinental Champion makes him smile.
“Their entrance is fabulous. Ludwig is perfect for the introduction – the facials and the voice, and the way he delivers it. And then when Gunther comes, out did you see the choreography? And I’m not talking about dancing, but he comes out and they automatically snap to attention to the side and put their arms behind their back that stuff. They look like a bunch of goddamn World War II movie soldiers. He makes me smile, Gunther, just the whole presentation. This is an example of guys being cool with their gimmick and their entrance and not corny or silly or whatever.”
We will have to wait and see what the company will have planned for Gunther. Fans simply want to see him being booked as a strong champion in the end.
