Brock Lesnar vs. Gunther is one of the big matches set for WWE WrestleMania 39 in Los Angeles.
After asking someone who is familiar with the creative plans, WrestlingNews.co was told that Lesnar vs. Gunther is one of the matches listed internally for the show. Gunther has talked about wanting the match because he feels that a match with Lesnar would present the biggest possible challenge for him.
Last month, Gunther said that Lesnar would be his "dream match." During an interview with Illinois' WMBD TV, Gunther said the following: "If I had to pin it down to one name, I’d say it’s Brock Lesnar at the moment,” Gunther said. “When I was young and watching WWE, I enjoyed watching his matches. Later on when I progressed in my career, I was able to watch wrestling and analyze how people work. He’s always been somebody I was impressed with. He’s one of the best to ever do it. I think that’s the biggest possible challenge for me at the moment."
We are still months away from WrestleMania and there's always the possibility that the card could change but the source said that Paul "Triple H" Levesque has all of the top matches laid out and things could have changed "a billion times" under Vince McMahon but people in the company are not seeing the scripts being ripped up like before and chances are that, barring an injury, the current WrestleMania plans will not change.
We're told that Lesnar is also scheduled for the Royal Rumble PLE next month and Elimination Chamber in February.
