Over the course of his career, Gunther has captured titles in Germany, England, Ireland and the United States.

Gunther is feared around the world for his demolishing in-ring style and his brutal knife-edge chops that can leave opponents’ chests sunken. Already one of Europe’s most destructive heavyweights, Gunther is currently signed to WWE, where he performs on the SmackDown brand.

Upon his arrival in NXT UK for Gunther, he got the biggest achievement of his life yet. Gunther was the person who ended Pete Dunne’s historic 685-day reign as WWE United Kingdom Champion. Hahn is also the current WWE Intercontinental Champion in his first reign.
