During an interview with Steve Fall of Ten Count, WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther talked about his appearance at the 2019 Survivor Series.
Gunther was eliminated in just 3 minutes when he appeared as part of team NXT.
“That’s just how things go sometimes. There is not much you can say. There was a decision that was made, and you go along with it and try to make the best of it. But I don’t know, I don’t think it was negative. Just hearing the crowd reactions when I came in the match, and then getting eliminated early, I think that did something to me. I think when you have a fanbase or something like that, and something, especially in wrestling, something happens to you that they think is not right for you, they’re gonna be very vocal about it, and they’re gonna be very loud about it. So I think it added to my popularity in that sense, I would say, because a lot of people spoke about it. So I think no harm was done, and everybody needs to be able to take a humbling experience here and there, so I’m totally fine with it.”
