WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther is ready to take on Madcap Moss next week on SmackDown.
The Ring General has been on a tear ever since winning the Intercontinental Championship last year from Ricochet. In a title reign spanning over 240 days, he has taken down the likes of Shinsuke Nakamura, Rey Mysterio, Sheamus, and Braun Strowman.
On the latest episode of SmackDown, Madcap Moss defeated Rey Mysterio, Karrion Kross, and Santos Escobar in a Fatal-Four-Way Match to become the new challenger for the prestigious title.
The current IC champ spoke with WWE correspondent Megan Morant on SmackDown LowDown this week. He made it clear that Madcap Moss is a tremendous athlete and could be a credible threat.
However, Gunther was unfazed and mentioned that there was no way he was going to drop the championship to Madcap.
“Let’s be honest, let’s address the situation here. I mean, look at him. He looks fantastic, great physique, amazing competitor. But he’s not the man to take my spot and hold this prestigious championship. If I share a little word of advice, I would say be happy of what you have achieved today. You should be happy and celebrate because next week, he’s going to feel humbled. Because for the first time in his life, he’s going to experience what it’s like to be in the ring with The Ring General.” [From 2:58 – 3:36]
