Vince McMahon was the CEO of WWE before he had to step down following allegations of sexual misconduct and allegedly having paid $12 million in hush money in a huge scandal. He eventually retired from WWE for good and was replaced by his daughter Stephanie McMahon as the CEO of WWE. His son-in-law Triple H is now the Executive Vice President of Talent and Relations as well. Vince McMahon also lied about quitting WWE recently but ended up being real in the end.
Reports recently have suggested that the current Intercontinental Champion, Gunther, will defend his title at the Premium Live Event Elimination Chamber.
According to a recent report from Xero News, the Austrian star is set to defend his championship on Saturday, February 18th, 2023, in Montreal, Canada.
“Gunther is likely to defend the Intercontinental Championship inside the Elimination Chamber against Braun Strowman, Ricochet, Santos Escobar, LA Knight & Drew Mcintyre in Montreal.”
During a recent interview with WMBD TV in Illinois, Gunther picked the Beast Incarnate as his dream WWE opponent.
“If I had to pin it down to one name, I’d say it’s Brock Lesnar at the moment. When I was young and watching WWE, I enjoyed watching his matches. Later on when I progressed in my career, I was able to watch wrestling and analyze how people work. He’s always been somebody I was impressed with. He’s one of the best to ever do it. I think that’s the biggest possible challenge for me at the moment.”
