In a “WWE RAW Digital Exclusive,” GUNTHER addressed Imperium’s loss to Jey Uso and The New Day and looked ahead to his upcoming title match against Uso. He said,
“I think objectively, we have to have to look at the rivalry with the New Day. I think this whole thing’s a marathon, not a sprint. But honestly, the New Day and Jey Uso are both two of the most successful tag team wrestlers in the history of this company, and we lost to the better team today. That’s fine.
“Next week, Jey Uso’s challenging me for the Intercontinental Heavy Championship. It’s gonna be interesting. Because this time, Jey cannot share the burden of being successful. Jey will fully rely on himself, and he will face somebody that, unlike him, has achieved everything on his own. So I’m not worried at all.”
Next week’s Intercontinental Championship match will mark Jey’s first time challenging for the title in the history of his career.
