WWE has a lot of ongoing storylines that they have been carefully crafting over the past several months, especially when titles are involved. However, they seem to have dropped a major storyline for some reason.
Chad Gable and Gunther have squared off against each other a few times this year, with Gable even handing Gunther his first loss on the main roster via count-out back in August.
Gunther put his title on the line against Chad Gable once again back in September. The match turned out to be an instant classic for many. Chad Gable almost had it in the bag, but Gunther caught a second win and used a deadly combination of moves to put away Gable and crush his dreams and even made Gable’s daughter cry.
That said, WWE hasn’t really revisited Gable and Gunther’s feud after that. While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about Chad Gable and Gunther’s feud, stating that the company has dropped the angle entirely. Meltzer then noted that Gunther could either drop the Intercontinental Title to Julius Creed or Brock Lesnar next year at WrestleMania 40.
”You know Chad Gable did that big promo, guy was going to win it for his daughter. They completely dropped that, they’re not even in that direction anymore. I don’t think it’s him because there’s no follow up.
They won’t do it, but a guy who could actually, because of the tag team thing because they keep tag team separate. I like Julius Creed beating Gunther in a fluke situation and then Gunther going up and challenging Rollins. What could happen next year is Gunther vs Brock Lesnar. Because he’s now over enough, to me that’s a WrestleMania match. I suppose he could just be champion till then and Lesnar wins the Intercontinental. But, Lesnar doesn’t work enough to do that and I don’t see Lesnar losing to Gunther. But I could see Gunther being cheated out of the belt and not lose face.”
It is certainly a shame that Chad Gable isn’t getting a shot at Gunther again. As for Gunther’s challenger, he will be defending his title against The Miz again very soon, so we’ll have to see how that will turn out.
