⁠3 WWE Superstars who have pinned Gunther in WWE history

Ever since Gunther stepped foot inside the WWE landscape, he was perceived to be a force to be reckoned with. From lengthy title reigns to dominant in-ring performances, The Ring General has decimated rosters and established his position as one of the most feared and incredible WWE superstars of the modern era.

Despite Gunther’s impressive track record in WWE, history has shown that even a dominant force like him has its kryptonite who has stepped up and put down The Ring General for the three counts inside the squared circle. While many have tried, only an exclusive club of WWE superstars has managed to stop the fury of Gunther and pinned his shoulders to the mat to secure the win.

Here are the top 3 WWE superstars who have pinned the longest-reigning WWE Intercontinental Champion of all time, Gunther:


1. Sami Zayn pinned Gunther at WrestleMania XL

The Underdog from the Underground, Sami Zayn has perhaps the most memorable moment when it comes to defeating Gunther in a singles bout in recent memory. After he earned the opportunity to battle him for the WWE Intercontinental title at WrestleMania XL, many fans and critics alike did not have faith in Sami’s ability to knock the Ring General off his pedestal.

However, with his section of supporters, family, and training with another fan-favorite, Chad Gable, Sami Zayn did the unthinkable at The Show of Shows by dethroning Gunther and ending the longest title reign in the history of the workhorse championship.

2. Drew McIntyre

The menacing ‘WWE Social Media Star of 2024’ Drew McIntyre has achieved multiple championships, accolades, and as seen in recent memory, memorable moments in the global juggernaut. However, McIntyre also has a rare feat etched on his resume that is not much talked about.


Circling back to the WWE Survivor Series event in 2019, Drew McIntyre and Gunther were part of the traditional 5-on-5 Elimination match, with McIntyre as a part of Team RAW and Gunther on Team NXT. It was only 5 minutes into the bout that The Scottish Warrior nailed him with a Claymore Kick to pin Gunther. With that, Gunther was the first person eliminated from the match, while McIntyre joined the exclusive club of stars to pin his shoulders to the mat.

3. Bron Breakker

One of the top NXT stars is ready to begin his tenure on a full-time basis on SmackDown, Bron Breakker is among the elite class of WWE superstars to pin The Ring General. The two dominant superstars collided against each other with the NXT championship on the line, held by Bron Breakker at the time.

It was seen as one of the most spectacular bouts in the history of WWE with the ending seeing Breakker delivering a thunderous military press powerslam to Gunther and securing a pinfall over him.
