Gunther’s incredible performance in NXT UK was simply just the beginning of his career in WWE. Following a decent run on NXT after that, Gunther was called up to the main roster and has since become a bonafide star there. Now it appears that Gunther declared Brock Lesnar as his ultimate end boss and continued to push for him to face Lesnar at WrestleMania 40.
The Ring General and The Beast Incarnate came face to face at the Royal Rumble and showed a glimpse of what they could do. The Ring General had previously stated that his encounter with Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble gave him confirmation that the WWE Universe is rooting for the match to happen as well.
While speaking on Busted Open Radio, the Intercontinental Champion made it clear that he wants to square off against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 40, stating that he needs to prove himself against The Beast Incarnate.
”WrestleMania 40 is the time for that. Let’s see but I feel in the long run the one name I always bring up is Brock because I feel like I’m the end boss to a lot of people, and I feel like Brock is somebody that has perfected being an end boss and I gotta prove myself with him in the ring too.”
Brock Lesnar was last seen on WWE television during the SummerSlam Premium Live Event, where he squared off against Cody Rhodes. In the end, Lesnar lost to The American Nightmare and has been absent since.
Only time will tell whether fans will get to see Gunther square off against Brock Lesnar in a singles match at the Showcase of The Immortals next year. With Lesnar already appearing in WrestleMania 40 promo recently, perhaps fans might get to see the match take place.
