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 crossed a major milestone now.
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.
Gunther also crossed 400 days as Intercontinental Champion, which is definitely impressive. According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Gunther has now surpassed “Macho Man” Randy Savage’s reign as Intercontinental Champion at 414 days.
Drew McIntyre made his return during the Money In The Bank Premium Live Event and confronted Gunther before laying him out. We’ll have to wait and see how WWE will book their feud as we approach SummerSlam.
What do you think of this achievement? Is Gunther the greatest Intercontinental Champion of all time already? Sound off in the comments!
