Instant Bleeding: My Immediate Experience

The WWE Superstar Gunther is the most dominant Intercontinental Champion of all time, and a legitimate attraction for the Stamford-based company. Gunther is known for his brutal chops, having been on the receiving end of heavy offense himself. One of the hardest hits he’s ever taken came from former AEW World Tag Team Champion Penta El Zero M. Penta, also known as Pentagon Jr., is one of the most successful luchadors in modern wrestling, wrestling all over the world in both singles competition and alongside his real-life brother, Rey Fenix. The two are among the top names in AEW’s tag team division and are former World Tag Team and Trios Champions in the company.

Back in 2018, Gunther and his partner Timothy Thatcher faced Penta and Fenix in the wXw World Tag Team League tournament in Oberhausen, Germany. Gunther pointed to this match when asked about the hardest chop he’s ever taken, describing how he was bleeding right away after being chopped by Penta. This sets the stage for WWE Survivor Series, where The Miz is set to face Gunther for the Intercontinental Championship. If The Miz wins, he will become a nine-time Intercontinental Champion, tying the legendary record held by Chris Jericho. This matchup adds more stakes to the bout, but WWE may not address the milestone in-depth due to The Miz’s opponent’s current status as an AEW star.
