Gunther on The Miz
“I’m looking forward to the opportunity to being in the ring with one of the top stars of the past. I’m looking forward to proving myself against him.”
“I’m not a typical WWE guy. I established and developed myself far away from WWE. Miz is different. He went through the WWE system, and he’s living proof of how effective the system is. He’s one of the most decorated wrestlers they’ve ever had. So it will be a clash of styles.”
Gunther on his weight loss
“If I stay stagnant, I’ll fall behind. I always want to be one step ahead. No one ever told me to lose weight. I wanted to transform into something new.”
