In an interview with the NotSam Wrestling podcast, Gunther talked about his title regime and how he feels at the moment. Many times so far in his career he has shown how great a wrestler he is. Gunther has been awarded many times for that.
His goal is to show everyone how big his persona is! “It makes me very proud,” he said, as quoted by pwmania.com! “It was the same with the NXT UK Title before. It was something where, okay, when I’m able to win a title, I’m going to make it the best run I possibly can make it.
The one thing I believe in is that the title doesn’t make the man, it’s the man that makes the title. I really believe in that”.
Gunther and his career
Throughout his career, he did not change anything about himself or the way he did things.
When he was a boy, he grew up watching the great stars on the wrestling scene and dreamed of one day becoming as famous as them. A lot of people left a big impression on him over the years. It was impossible for Gunther to have imagined that one day he would have such an incredible career as his.
It was the fulfillment of a childhood dream for him. “Obviously, it makes me very proud because, like I said, when I was a child I watched Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart, and whoever being the Intercontinental Champion,” he said.
“That I can be on some sort of list of whatever they have going on with the longest reigns and something with those guys. That’s absolutely crazy, and I’m doing it my way. That’s the fact that makes me the most proud.
I adapted, I learned, I evolved, but I never changed what I think was right for me to do. That’s the thing that makes me proud”.
