Exclusive: WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther names dream WrestleMania opponent

WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther has named his dream WrestleMania opponent.

The Austrian star has an incredible title reign of 650 days and counting - and will defend his gold against Sami Zayn at WrestleMania XL in Philadelphia in two weeks’ time.

Speaking to The Independent, Gunther explained that he is currently in a position where he doesn’t need to chase opponents - but revealed that his dream match would be against an icon from the past.

“I’m trying to think objectively and I think a match with Shawn Michaels would have been great,” he said.

“I would have been a great opposite to what Michaels was - I think that would have been a great WrestleMania match.”

Tune in to WrestleMania XL on Saturday 6 April and Sunday 7 April on WWE Network.
