Gunther believes London is a perfect location for the upcoming WrestleMania

9 months ago By Sports Desk

Gunther holds the belief that the potential exists for WrestleMania to occur in a recently hinted-at new venue featured on television.

John Cena’s Hint Sparks Speculation

The wrestling world has been abuzz ever since John Cena made an appearance at WWE’s Money In The Bank event, dropping a tantalizing hint about the possibility of WrestleMania taking place in England. This notion has ignited discussions and debates about whether this ambitious idea could become a reality. The reigning Intercontinental Champion, GUNTHER, has now added his perspective to the ongoing conversation, sharing his thoughts with the Daily Mail.

GUNTHER’s Take on the Prospect

GUNTHER, who transitioned from NXT to the main roster in April of the previous year, has been making waves with an undefeated streak. As he approaches The Honkey Tonk Man’s remarkable 454-day record as the Intercontinental champion, GUNTHER shared his insights in a pre-SummerSlam interview with Mail Sport. He reflected on his impressive 2023 run and shared his memories of WWE’s grand summer spectacle.

Could WrestleMania Truly Land in London?

One of the most intriguing revelations at Money in the Bank was John Cena’s suggestion of the potential WrestleMania venue shift to London. When asked about the feasibility of this idea, GUNTHER expressed his support, stating, “I could totally see that. I think Clash at the Castle proved that selling out those huge stadiums is not a huge deal for WWE at the moment. The people want to experience it, so if they get the logistics done and everything else that comes with that because it could be a little bit tricky to run Europe, I really hope it’s something they go for.”

The Challenge of an Epic Reign

GUNTHER’s reign as the Intercontinental Champion has been nothing short of spectacular. With a reign spanning 423 days, he stands on the brink of surpassing The Honkey Tonk Man’s historic record, potentially becoming the longest-reigning Intercontinental Champion in history. Despite the excitement among fans, GUNTHER expressed reservations about a scripted face-off with The Honky Tonk Man on screen. Speaking to Metro UK, he articulated,

“No, I don’t think so. I think he [The Honky Tonk Man] had his time, he’s still got the record — it’s not broken, we will see what happens. I think I operate on a different level than him when it comes to what we do in the ring. I think my presentation’s very different, and also how I carry myself. I think it would just not be a good fit. I don’t think anybody would benefit from that,” said Gunther.

Growing Wrestling Demand in the UK

The wrestling fervor in the United Kingdom is undeniable, evident in WWE’s major premium live events organized in the region over the past two years. Additionally, AEW’s forthcoming event at Wembley Stadium, “All In,” further underscores the demand for wrestling in this part of the world. WWE’s global expansion is also evident through events outside the continental United States, including shows in Saudi Arabia and the recent PLE in Puerto Rico, contributing to the company’s growth.

Political Interest Fuels Speculation

The potential prospect of WrestleMania coming to England has even captured the attention of British politicians. Alex Davies-Jones, Labour Party MP for Pontypridd, has advocated for this exciting venture, adding to the speculation surrounding the event. However, while the idea of WrestleMania taking place in England is tantalizing, it appears that the nearest feasible date for this to happen would be WrestleMania 41. Reports suggest that WWE’s current focus remains on hosting that grand show within the United States.
