Gunther has been looking for a worthy challenger since being drafted by Raw. At WWE Night of Champions, Gunther will receive his wish as he goes up against Mustafa Ali for the first time.
Ali received this title opportunity after winning a thrilling Battle Royal, albeit with some help from The Ring General himself. As Matt Riddle was looking strong, Gunther enacted his vicious tactics, signaling to Giovanni Vinci and Ludwig Kaiser to eliminate The Original Bro from the matchup.
Ali has been trying to see the positive outlook in life in recent weeks, and nothing could be more positive than a match with Gunther for the Intercontinental Title in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Can Ali finally win his first championship in WWE, or will The Ring General continue his incredible reign?
