Gunther and Brock Lesnar had an epic confrontation during the Men's Royal Rumble match this year.
The Ring General was the iron man this year in the Royal Rumble, starting in the number one slot and lasting all the way to the end before being eliminated by Cody Rhodes. Despite this impressive feat, many people can't get his confrontation with The Beast Incarnate out of their heads.
Gunther was a guest on the latest edition of WWE's The Bump to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked what was going through his mind when he came face-to-face with Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble, the current Intercontinental Champion said it was as simple as "let's go!"
"That moment, let's go. It was a super exciting moment for me," Gunther said. "So obviously, Brock [Lesnar] is a competitor I was always impressed with and I think I said it before it was like people call me kind of like the end boss in situations but Brock might be my personal end boss and I think that moment we had was all I needed out of it right now. Basically, a real life confirmation that the audience is up for that. Obviously, my focus right now is on being the Intercontinental Champion. But going down the line. I think that's something I really want to go for being the ring with Brock one on one."
