GUNTHER is in the middle of a fantastic run in WWE. The Ring General continues to dominate the competition and that’s unlikely to change anytime soon. That said, it appears he has no interest in a new title design for the Intercontinental Championship.

The Ring General won the WWE Intercontinental Championship in June 2022 and has since defended it several times already. With each win, Gunther’s stock continues to rise and he becomes more and more dominating.

Gunther can match Honky Tonk Man’s long-standing record in September. Judging by how dominant he has been as the champion, it is all but confirmed that he will break the record.

WWE recently introduced new title designs for Roman Reigns, Rhea Ripley, Asuka and even gave a new title to Seth Rollins. While speaking to Steve Fall, Gunther made it clear he doesn’t want a new title design for the Intercontinental Championship.


“I’m fine with the one I got. I personally always liked the old design with the white strap. But things got to develop and things got to move forward and I think it’s just personal taste and I’m very pleased with how it looks right now.”

As previously reported, WWE is already discussing having Gunther break The Honky Tonk Man’s record as the Intercontinental Champion. It remains to be seen whether he will end up breaking the record.
