WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther has revealed he wants to take Imperium to the new NXT Europe, as he revealed he wants to be a part of the new brand in his homeland.
The former NXT UK Champion recently defended his title in an incredible match against Sheamus at Clash of the Castle in Cardiff, Wales and has made a new life for himself on the main roster of the WWE in the United States of America.
The battling Austrian showed an incredible weight loss when he debuted on the main roster and has been putting on incredible matches weekly as the premier champion on Friday Night Smackdown. The Ring General found success in NXT UK before his call up and is one of the most recognisable European wrestlers in the world right now.
Luckily for the upstart brand, Gunther revealed he would love to be a part of NXT Europe. Being a former UK Champion and current WWE star, Gunther in NXT Europe along with his Imperium stable would do wonders to establish the bran in the mainland and he would be a perfect choice to be the first NXT European Champion.
Luckily for European fans, Gunther was asked in an interview with Cultaholic Wrestling about NXT UK shutting down and whether he’s been approached about working with NXT Europe. The Intercontinental champion stated that;
“I think it’s still so fresh that there aren’t really concrete plans or anything. But I’m definitely up to being involved somehow. I think it’d a great progression from NXT UK. I think there’s a lot of potential in NXT Europe so I hope we can do our part in that.”Gunther on NXT Europe and wanting to wrestle for the promotion.
