Gunther is in the middle of an iconic run in Vince McMahon’s company. The Ring General continues to dominate the competition and that’s unlikely to change anytime soon. Now it appears Gunther made a huge claim after what transpired on RAW this week.
As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, Gunther defended his Intercontinental Championship against Chad Gable, in what was their third encounter this year.
It was truly a physical affair and it seemed as if Gable would win, but Gunther turned the tables and became the victor instead. While speaking WWE Raw Exclusive, Gunther talked about his win and claimed that there is no man alive who can win the title from him.
“What’s going through my mind? I’m not surprised. From the moment on I won this prestigious championship, I saw the vision. I envisioned this very moment, that I’m the one to redefine history, redefine the legacy of the Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship. I heard them talking, I heard them discussing their childhood heroes, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels. I heard them them talk about Steve Austin, The Rock. The reality is, when that bell rings, they all can come line up and lace my boots. Because as long as I’m alive, there’s no man born yet to take this title off me again.”
We will have to wait and see whether Chad Gable will be eventually able to defeat Gunther for the Intercontinental Championship, as Gunther will become the longest-reigning Intercontinental Champion in WWE history this week.
