Moreover, Gunther stated that he doesn’t remember any specific achievements of The Miz’s career. In essence, the Ring General tried his best to get under the skin of the former WWE Champion before their match at Survivor Series this Saturday. However, Gunther was unsuccessful in holding himself for praising The Miz as well. He said that getting in the ring with the A-Lister is fantastic.

In addition, the Ring General stated that their epic clash at Survivor Series will determine who is the greatest Intercontinental Champion of all time. While The Miz has made that title relevant, Gunther has revived its lost glory. It is going to be interesting to see who walks out of Chicago as the Intercontinental Champion this Saturday.
