He has been the Intercontinental Champion for more than 500 days and it looks like no one will be able to stop him for a long time. He has had some of the best matches in WWE for this championship. His classic against Sheamus at Clash at the Castle or the Triple Threat at WrestleMania. His feud with Chad Gable was one of the best of the year. Gunther has defended the Intercontinental Championship more than 70 times across Live events, PPVs and TV shows. He will continue to have this dominant reign and unlike Roman Reigns, the fans want to see more of him as champion. He is also the longest reigning Intercontinental Champion of all time, a title which has a history of more than 40 years.

His matches against Bryan Danielson, Kenny Omega, Hangman Adam Page, CM Punk, Samoa Joe were all incredible and he proved that he can back up all the talk in the ring. It also helps that he is the best promo in AEW as well. MJF is only in his mid 20s and he has a very bright future in wrestling whether it be in AWE or WWE in the future.

Seth Rollins – World Heavyweight Champion (WWE)

Who is the Best Champion in Professional Wrestling? 

Out of all the 3 amazing champions that were talked about, Gunther has to be the best champion in professional wrestling. The sheer value and the prestige he has brought back to the Intercontinental Championship is something that cannot be overlooked. He has held that championship for over 500 days and it is the single longest reign for the Intercontinental Championship. Gunther makes everyone in the ring better and Chad Gable is the perfect example as he made him into a main event player with their trilogy of matches. Now every WWE superstar wants that Intercontinental Championship. And the best part is Gunther beats his opponents without any outside interference. He can have an all time classic against wrestlers smaller than him or bigger than him. Gunther is easily the best champion in professional wrestling but the other 2 champions in MJF and Seth Rollins are doing amazing work as well.
