The former NXT Superstar has dominated WWE with his size and stature. However, it was reported that WWE wanted him to lose weight and slim down. But during a recent interview with Sport1 in Germany, Gunther stated that he decided to lose weight.

Gunther mentioned that it was ultimately his own initiative. However, he also said that he must present more to the general public.

“It was completely my own initiative. For me, it was quite clear — if I want to take the next big step, I have to present more for the general public. Personally, I’ve always been a big fan of old-school Japanese wrestlers who still had a belly and looked like you’d imagine a butcher. Emulating such idols worked for me also because up to now, I’ve been there for the, let’s call it, hardcore wrestling audience.” (H/T EWrestling News)
