WWE Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER will only be permitted to wrestle in the United States for the next six months due to strict residency regulations, according to a report from Krone, Austria’s largest newspaper, who spoke with GUNTHER during WWE’s recent tour of Germany.

Speaking about how this will change his schedule, GUNTHER noted that the strict regulations will allow him to spend more time with his wife, and former WWE NXT UK star Jinny, who he only spent time with for 6 days during the entire month of October.

As a result of the regulations, this means that GUNTHER will not be part of the WWE Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event in Perth, Australia this February.
