GUNTHER has solidified his status as a dominant force within the WWE, showcasing remarkable prowess as the reigning WWE Intercontinental Champion and adding another milestone to his astonishing reign.

He laid claim to the workhorse title on the June 10, 2022, edition of SmackDown, where he battled the ever-dynamic Ricochet in a fiercely contested match and dethroned the one and only superstar to win the Intercontinental title.

Since that momentous victory, GUNTHER has displayed unparalleled resilience, defeating formidable opponents and etching his name in the history books of WWE as the longest-reigning Intercontinental Champion, surpassing the record set by The Honky Tonk Man that stood for over three decades.

As of now, The Ring General has held the WWE Intercontinental Championship for 650 days, and as per data from CageMatch.Net, GUNTHER has defended his title an impressive 100 times. These defenses have taken place across various house shows, television broadcasts, and premium live events. It started with the first defense against Ricochet in June 2022, with the latest one being against Jey Uso on the March 10, 2024 house show.


As WrestleMania 40 approaches, GUNTHER prepares to defend his title against the victor of the upcoming 6-man Gauntlet match on RAW, Sami Zayn. So we will have to see if the Underdog from the Underground becomes the one to bring an end to what many consider one of the most illustrious championship reigns of the modern era.
