WWE King And Queen Of The Ring 2024 Results: Gunther Ekes By Randy Orton

Gunther has successfully recovered from his WrestleMania defeat and secured the King of the Ring title by defeating Randy Orton at WWE King and Queen of the Ring event in Saudi Arabia. Gunther’s remarkable 666-day reign as Intercontinental Champion ended recently when Sami Zayn defeated him. This transition was crucial for Gunther’s progression in WWE.

Gunther’s next move in his journey to become the world champion is to claim the title of King of the Ring. Known as “The Ring General,” he cleverly defeated Orton with a unique pinning technique in his latest outstanding match. Gunther is widely regarded as one of the most skilled wrestlers in the industry, showcasing remarkable performances such as his match against Zayn at WrestleMania and his consistent excellence throughout the KOTR tournament. His victory over Orton in Saudi Arabia, particularly in such a memorable match, adds to his impressive streak, despite facing potential obstacles.

In the past, WWE planned to undermine Gunther with poor booking during Vince McMahon’s leadership. Gunther acknowledged not being pleased with WWE’s booking back then. However, under Triple H and the new creative team, Gunther has been booked effectively.

Gunther brought the Intercontinental title to new heights after decades, but it seemed like just a stepping stone for greater opportunities. Despite his successful run with the title, losing to Zayn was necessary for his career progression. A victory over a seasoned performer like Orton is expected to boost Gunther’s position in the wrestling scene. Given Gunther’s talent, WWE should find it easier to elevate him compared to past King of the Ring winners. WWE’s recent Kings of the Ring were Baron Corbin in 2019 and Xavier Woods in 2021. Their wins didn’t elevate them much. Gunther has had more success as a singles wrestler than them. This brings hope that Gunther can bring importance back to KOTR.

Gunther won the Intercontinental title and made it popular on Monday Night Raw. He is expected to do well as “King Gunther” due to his recent successes. The King of the Ring crown suits Gunther’s persona and will help him as Raw’s top villain. This will lead to Gunther facing the World Heavyweight Champion at SummerSlam on Raw.

Therefore, Triple H’s creative team aims to achieve what the previous WWE management failed to do, which is to elevate the status of the KOTR crown significantly to help stars reach greater heights. Gunther could potentially progress from being the Intercontinental Champion to winning the King of the Ring and ultimately becoming the World champion within a short span of time. Consequently, whether it’s Damian Priest, Drew McIntyre, or another wrestler, that individual might only be keeping the World Heavyweight title warm until Gunther claims it.
