WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther was interviewed on the Battleground podcast to talk about his feud with Sheamus, the title he would like to bring back and other topics.

Gunther gave his thoughts on Sheamus:

"I think for myself, personally, I think Sheamus is a fantastic opponent because I always like matches when it's a little bit more scrappy. It makes it a little bit more authentic as well. I think Sheamus brings a fantastic energy and the physicality that I bring as well. I think we do really well together in the ring. The matches I had with him this year, well last year, it's January already, were some of the favorite ones of my career and I hope we do it again.”

"Definitely. That's like to get the opportunity to prove myself in that scenario would be fantastic. When I started out as a wrestler, and I got back into watching wrestling again, I always watched Brock's matches because they've been fantastic. It was a standout right away. There's nobody like him. I always liked those characters. He's always been a great wrestler and from when I grew older in my career, and I was able to analyze the work and understand that psychology and stuff like that, I think you can tell that he's one of the best to ever do it. So if I get a chance to get in the ring with him, I will gladly take that and prove myself."
