Former WWE Chairman Vince McMahon allegedly had issues remembering the names of the talents. It has now been alleged that Vince had no idea who current top star Gunther (formerly Walter) was back in late 2019.



Vince McMahon had allegedly forgotten about Gunther

Gunther is having a great run on WWE SmackDown and he is the current WWE Intercontinental Champion. Many fans regard him as one of the hardest-hitting brawlers in the business, and he has a bright future ahead of him on WWE’s main roster.

On the latest edition of “Oh…You Didn’t Know?”, WWE veteran Road Dogg opened up about NXT invading SmackDown during the buildup to Survivor Series 2019 three years ago. Road Dogg noted that the then-WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon, didn’t know who Gunther was. Here is what he said:

“Look, Vince didn’t watch the program. Vince heard the social media reports about the program, he read the emails about the ratings, he got the information. He didn’t know who GUNTHER was. He didn’t know what GUNTHER brought to the table. He very much was not the guy out scouting talent at independent shows in other countries. That’s not Vince McMahon. He didn’t know what GUNTHER brought to the table.”

A report by WrestleVotes stated that WWE’s Chief Content Officer, Triple H, has big plans for Gunther.

“Gunther is going to be around for a long time. He’s got real potential as a heel, and he’s going be here for 10/12 years. He’s going to open some shows, he’s going to close some shows, but he’s just going to be a solid match every night. That’s what Hunter sees in him right now,” reported WrestleVotes.

Alundra Blayze accused Vince McMahon of having a problem with his mind as far back as the 90’s in a new A2theK Wrestling interview recalling when he fired her.

“I was like ‘what? What the hell? What the…? What? this is a rib, right? this is a joke?’ No, call the office that’s what it was. Just let me go. I was still their champion. He [Vince McMahon] wasn’t thinking right because if you’ve been back then, Vince would never let their champion go. He wasn’t in his right mind. When I say that is because I knew it wasn’t hurtful or deliberate.”
