Gunther explains why Vince McMahon‘s vision for professional wrestling never appealed to him.

RAW Superstar Gunther recently sat down with Alex McCarthy of Mail Online. When asked about how the company has been operating under Triple H instead of Vince McMahon, Gunther admitted one of the reasons he never wanted to relocate to the United States was due to McMahon’s vision of WWE.

“I think one of the reasons why I didn’t want to go to the US for a long time was because Raw and SmackDown under Vince’s vision at that time was something that was never appealing to me as a wrestler. It was just not what I was interested in,” Gunther admitted. “I’m a throwback, and I like to have my time for my matches. I like to focus on what I do in the ring, and not the bells and whistles around it.

“And that experience back then [at Survivor Series 2019] was almost a confirmation for that. I’m a throwback. I like to have my time for my matches and I like to have to focus on what I do in the ring and not the bells and whistles around it. And that experience back then was, like, almost a confirmation for that.

“I got really lucky. I always had a good relationship with Triple H, and a lot of things fell in place at the right time for me, and with how everything is run now; I think it’s way more modern. It’s more intelligent in terms of placing certain talent and showcasing their strengths. So it’s a very exciting time, and I think the our fans can feel it’s like a like a breath of fresh air.”
