Since arriving on “WWE SmackDown,” the now-skinny GUNTHER has been dominating, stealing the show at the Royal Rumble with a record-breaking 71-minute performance. “He appears in After the Bell with Corey Graves,” Intercontinental Champion Gunther revealed if the weight loss helped him last 71 minutes at the Royal Rumble.
“I’ve always had it, even when it was very heavy, I have to say I didn’t have any problems with resistance,” Gunther said. “I’ve had long matches before. But I have to say that it’s a lot easier now than it used to be. Going into the Rumble, if you start at no. #1, you know you have to fight. Through it all if you want to. But, I am in those situations. Like, let’s call it a high-pressure situation, if that makes sense.”
Gunther has been in plenty of high-pressure situations since arriving on “WWE SmackDown,” as he’s held the Intercontinental Championship for most of his main roster career, recently breaking the record for most days in a reign as Champion.
