WWE Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER continues to reach new milestones in his reign as the titleholder, as he approaches the record set by the Honky Tonk Man.
Since capturing the Intercontinental Championship from Ricochet on June 10, GUNTHER has asserted his dominance over the WWE midcard division. Regarded as one of the most dominant performers on the WWE roster alongside Universal Champion Roman Reigns, GUNTHER has solidified his status as a force to be reckoned with. As of July 15, it has been exactly 400 days since GUNTHER first captured the Intercontinental Championship.
With the Honky Tonk Man holding the record for the longest reign as Intercontinental Champion at 454 days, GUNTHER is now less than two months away from potentially breaking this storied record. WWE has been keen on highlighting GUNTHER’s accomplishments on television, further fueling speculation that he may still be the champion by September 6.
GUNTHER is often recognized as the longest reigning Intercontinental Champion of the 21st century, a feat that solidifies his place in WWE history. While several other superstars have held the Intercontinental Title for longer than 400 days, including Randy Savage with a 414-day reign and Pedro Morales with a 424-day reign, GUNTHER’s dominance stands out.
In his most recent title defense, GUNTHER successfully retained the Intercontinental Championship against Matt Riddle at the July 1 Money in the Bank premium live event. Following the match, a surprise return by Drew McIntyre hinted at a potential future showdown between McIntyre and GUNTHER for the coveted title.
As GUNTHER’s reign as Intercontinental Champion continues, anticipation grows around whether he will break the Honky Tonk Man’s record and etch his name in WWE history. With his imposing presence and undeniable talent, GUNTHER’s reign shows no signs of slowing down.
