The annual Met Gala is known as ‘Fashion’s biggest night out’ and one WWE star will be happy to find out that Last Of Us and Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal seems to appreciate his outfits.
In a move that will come as a disappointment to Maximum Male Models, Pascal wore a red and black outfit that many wrestling fans were quick to point out bears more than a passing resemblance to the Intercontinental Champion, Gunther, right down to a long red coat that could’ve come straight from the Austrian star’s wardrobe.

While Pascal is more likely to be found helping out kids like Grogu and Ellie than joining Imperium, fans think he’s at least taken inspiration from the Ring General.

As it turns out, we might be seeing more of the longest-reigning NXT UK Champion in red in the near future as the star has been drafted to Raw.
Imperium moved to Raw in WWE Draft
The first night of the 2023 Draft took place on the April 28th episode of SmackDown, where it was revealed that Gunther and his fellow Imperium members were being moved to Raw. One of the star’s biggest opponents will be following him there as Drew McIntyre has also been drafted to the red brand.
Meanwhile, Roman Reigns was confirmed to be staying on SmackDown with the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, while Cody Rhodes would become exclusive to Raw.
