Former WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther has revealed who he believes was the right choice to end his record-setting reign.

At WrestleMania 40, Gunther’s historic run as the longest reigning Intercontinental Champion in WWE history came to an end, when Sami Zayn captured the championship, ending Gunther’s run at 666 days.

While Sami’s win was well received by fans, many were of the belief that Chad Gable should have been the man to end Gunther’s historic title reign following their storyline late last year.

Speaking on the Gorilla Position podcast, Gunther was asked who he believed would be the right person, noting that Sami and Gable were the two options that made sense.

He said:

“I don’t think there was one right person. I think there would have been a few options. Chad is the other one that would have made a lot of sense.

“Sami is definitely one of those where it was ‘he’s the right guy to do it.’ He’s absolutely a fantastic professional wrestler. He has the natural connection with the audience. He’s really the underdog that people can connect with and understand the struggle. It’s naturally the personality he is. He doesn’t look like the perfect athlete. That’s not who he is or ever was. That also adds to the people having a connection because basically nobody in our audience is a perfect person. It’s a very human thing to not be perfect. It’s very easy to connect with it and to go through those struggles with that person.

“On top of that, he’s fantastic in the ring and has been for years. To do the match with him at the biggest stage possible and go out in the biggest way possible, I was very happy with that. It was a very successful ending to that reign.”
