GUNTHER Achieves Another Impressive WWE Milestone

Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER has reached yet another impressive WWE milestone following an incredible run with the title and a strong 2023, with momentum continuing into 2024.

It all started when Gunther defeated Ricochet for the Intercontinental Championship, and he went on to surpass Shinsuke Nakamura’s 201-day reign, which ended in 2019. He broke The Honky Tonk Man’s record for the longest reign with the Intercontinental Championship in September, surpassing it after 35 years.

After making several defenses on SmackDown, he was moved to RAW alongside Imperium during the Draft last year, where he has continued to make them.

He will defend his title against Jey Uso tonight on Monday Night Raw. He does not have a match scheduled for Saturday’s Elimination Chamber PLE.

He has now held the title for 619 titles, making him the longest reigning WWE Intercontinental Champion in terms of total combined days for champions with combined reigns, tying Pedro Morales’ record of 619 days with two title defenses. If Gunther beats Uso tonight, he will set a new record.
