GUNTHER had an awe-inspiring 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. GUNTHER is now a staple of the blue brand and remains the hardest hitter in WWE. In fact, Jim Cornette wants GUNTHER to make Roman Reigns bleed from the chest, similar to Chris Jericho.
As seen on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Chris Jericho defended his ROH World Championship against Tomohiro Ishii. It was a very brutal affair, which saw Jericho bleeding from the chest thanks to Ishii’s vicious chops. Jericho was able to win the match in the end when the dust settled.
While speaking on his podcast, The Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette noted that he liked the idea of Jericho bleeding from his chest. Cornette then called for GUNTHER to make Roman Reigns bleed the same way from his chest.
“I kind of like the idea of what Jericho did. If it had been with anybody that’s actually regularly in the company, and could ever mean anything on the program, or could ever sell a pay-per-view, or is ever going to be in a pay-per-view main event, or is ever going to be in an important position anywhere instead of Ishii. But blading the chest for the chops, in theory, I don’t know why somebody hadn’t done it before.
Walter Gunther, boy if they could do it in the WWE that would be a thing to do. If he got in a ring with fuckng Roman Reigns or Brock Lesnar, any major legitimate star and fuckng hit one of those godd*mn rifle shot swings on somebody’s chest and they got a little color of the chest, that would be great.”
We will have to wait and see whether GUNTHER will end up feuding with Roman Reigns in the future or not. For the time being, GUNTHER is feuding with Braun Strowman.
