Gunther was legitimately injured on the December 30th, 2022 episode of WWE SmackDown. The injury went down when Gunther was thrown against the ropes, causing him to land awkwardly and hurt his leg.

PW Insider reports the IC Champion is okay, but the extent of Gunther’s injury is not yet known. It is unclear at this time how long Gunther will be out of the ring, if he needs to miss any time at all, but fans are hopeful that he will make a full recovery soon.


You never know when injuries will happen in professional wrestling, and Superstars often have to push through pain. It is not uncommon for wrestlers to suffer from long-term injuries that can affect their ability to perform, so it is important for them to take time, so they can heal. Sadly, their busy schedules sometimes prohibit that from becoming a reality.
