Roman Reigns and Gunther might engage in an epic showdown somewhere down the line
Reigns and Gunther are two of the most dominant superstars in all of WWE today. Gunther and Reigns are bound to tear the house down when they finally meet in the squared circle in the distant future.
Former WWE Superstar Tommy Dreamer is one of many who wants to see an epic showdown between Reigns and Gunther:
“It was great [Gunther vs. Rey Mysterio]. It helped GUNTHER because we’re talking about Roman Reigns. We’re talking about Logan Paul. If Roman Reigns beats him, eventually — then I say the person they have to go to is GUNTHER versus Roman at ‘Mania. Because then I’m like, ‘Who else can do it?’ And I don’t know who else can do it.”
Reigns is still going strong as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. He has beaten the very best in his quest to remain at the top of the main roster food chain. Gunther wouldn’t be too thrilled now that Reigns has broken his impressive record. One wonders what he would have to say about Reigns’ incredible feat.
