Gunther declares for the WWE Royal Rumble

Gunther has declared for the WWE Royal Rumble during the January 15 episode of Monday Night Raw.


The Intercontinental champion Gunther was back on WWE television this Monday on Raw, after he took some time off to witness the birth of his child. As he approaches the 600 days mark as champion, the Ring General declared for the 2024 edition of the Royal Rumble which is coming in the Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg on January 27.

Last year, Gunther entered at number 1 and went on to the final against Cody Rhodes; but it was the American Nightmare who took the better of his opponent that day. Still, the longest-reigning Intercontinental champion had a great performance, and he wants to do even better this year. Indeed, during this week’s episode of WWE Raw, Gunther said he had his eyes set on the main event of WrestleMania 40 and showed his confidence while saying it.
