The Intercontinental Championship has a long and rooted history over the decades. There have been very few superstars who have made the championship prestigious. However, Gunther is one such name that added elegance to the Intercontinental title in the modern era. The Ring General has been holding the title for around a year now. Furthermore, he holds the record for the longest-reigning intercontinental champion. As WrestleMania is less than five weeks away, it seems like Gunther has finally gotten an intrepid challenge for his title at WrestleMania 39.

He said that he was bloodthirsty for the Intercontinental Championship. Moreover, the former WWE Champion said that the biggest event of the year is just five weeks away, and he wants to join the party in Los Angeles. “It’s five weeks until WrestleMania. I want Gunther, and I want the Intercontinental Championship,” said McIntyre.

After the match of Imperium, the WWE Universe saw Drew McIntyre standing on the ramp and staring at Gunther standing in the ring. However, the audacious stare-down between the two has hinted at their possible match at The Showcase of The Immortals.
Besides, there have been various rumors circulating about a possible match for the Intercontinental Championship.
