Now that WWE Crown Jewel 2022 is over, it will be interesting to see who will challenge Roman Reigns at future major events. A potential candidate for the same could be Gunther, according to ECW legend Tommy Dreamer.
The 35-year-old Intercontinental Champion recently defeated Rey Mysterio in the main event of SmackDown. Meanwhile, Reigns successfully defended his WWE Universal Undisputed championship against Logan Paul in Crown Jewel. Both winners will likely remain key players through 2023.
On a recent episode of Bustling open for sale podcast, Tommy Dreamer mentioned – before Crown Jewel – that Gunther could take on a big role when WrestleMania 39 takes place:
“It’s great [Gunther vs. Rey Mysterio]. It helped Gunther because we’re talking about Roman Reigns. We’re talking about Logan Paul. If Roman Reigns defeats him, in the end – then I say the one they have to go is Gunther against Roman at ‘Mania. Because then I thought, ‘Who else can do it?’ And I don’t know anyone else who can do it.”
Next year’s WrestleMania event will take place at SoFi Stadium in California on April 1-2. Every rumora climactic showdown with The Rock on The Show of Shows could be in the cards for Reigns.
Does Gunther want a WWE storyline with Roman Reigns?
The two men have never crossed in a singles match. However, they are part of great competition for 15 men at Survivor Series 2019. Fast forward to 2022, Gunther and Roman Reigns could appear in the same SmackDown segment.
In an interview with WittyWhittier in August, the Intercontinental Champion was asked to pick any WWE Superstar he wanted a storyline with. Gunther selected Dynasties.
With Survivor Series WarGames coming soon, WWE has the option to set up champions on a collision course this month. Given their track record, their one-on-one matchup could be a must-see no matter when it happens.
