Gunther would like to face Tyson Fury at WWE Clash at the Castle

Recently, WWE superstar Gunther appeared in an interview with Cultaholic Wrestling where he discussed the possibility of Tyson Fury at the WWE UK Premium Event. He also talked about will he have a match against The Gypsy Soul at Cardiff.

Gunther said, “To be honest, it seems like from what you see, he’s been around WWE. And from what you hear, it seems to be like a very cool guy and a pretty laid-back person. He’s one of the best of all time in his sport. I’m not a big boxing fan, but Ludwig is into boxing, he boxed himself in his youth.”

He added, “Actually, we watched the fight in the locker room the other day, massive crowd, really crazy. It’s great because he’s so unorthodox I think, he doesn’t look like the best athlete in the world, but in his sport, he is. If I will get the chance to wrestle him in WWE, I will definitely be very open to that.”

The match would be an amazing mix of the unorthodox style of Tyson Fury and the classic wrestling style of Gunther. However, The General claimed that there is a disadvantage for him against Fury for connecting his chops as The Gypsy Soul would defend it quickly.
