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. Now it appears he believes it isn’t the right time to challenge for a major World Title in WWE.

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.

While speaking to Sanjay Maru ahead of SummerSlam, Gunther was asked if he plans on challenging for any major World Title. Gunther made it clear he doesn’t think it’s the right time to challenge for a major World Title.

“I can carry both if necessary [laughs], there is still space. But no, I think there’s a lot of room to grow still. I’m very pleased with how everything is going so far. There are a lot of exciting matchups, and they are in that World Heavyweight Title division. So at one point, if I want to get into the ring with those guys I will have to make that step.”


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. We’ll have to see how he will continue to be booked in the coming weeks.
