“He Would Chop Me To Death” – WWE Hall of Famer Would Love To Take On GUNTHER

Gunther with the WWE Intercontinental Title

GUNTHER is one of the most dominant and intimidating wrestlers in WWE today. He has a well-earned reputation for wrestling in a very physical and punishing style and his chops are known for their lethality. One need only look at what Sheamus’ chest looked like after those two wrestled at Clash at the Castle in 2022.

GUNTHER’s brutality has translated into a long and successful reign as WWE Intercontinental Champion and plenty of other successes as well. In fact, GUNTHER’s reputation has taken on such a life of its own that a long-retired Hall of Famer toyed with the idea of facing GUNTHER for the title.

Despite his age, Road Dogg thinks there’s merit in a match with GUNTHER

On an episode of his Oh You Didn’t Know podcast, Road Dogg explained that he would make a great opponent for GUNTHER because he’d have an easy time generating sympathy against such an imposing monster.

“I would work with Gunther. And the reason being is I’m an old relic, but one that is quasi marketable, quasi promotable. So it’s the Road Dogg comes out of retirement to face Gunther, and then I already have a little pity you know what I mean?

Already you’re going come on, dude, why did you [choose him]? Really? Him? Like that’s who you picked? And so to me, you could go into that with a little sympathy already. And so he would chop me to death, [but] I can promise you this. When that comeback came Jack, you better have got your stuff in big man. Because it’s my turn. And man that I’m telling you what, that’s exciting. That’s exciting. Getting in that frame of mind right now is exciting.

I can’t even imagine trying to have a match right now in my physical state of being. I’m not what you call a picture of health. But, I’d love to have that match, and I think about constructing it in a way that would even that would even best utilize my inabilities.

If that makes sense, like how do you work with a guy who’s fat and has no wind? You beat him down and keep him down until it’s time for him to regulate his breathing and catch enough oxygen in his lungs to throw that stiff comeback because it’s all coming back Jack.”
