WWE SmackDown Preview Sees Gunther Defending The IC Title Tonight

Our preview for tonight's WWE SmackDown on FOX finds Gunther defending the Intercontinental Championship against Madcap Moss.

Whether you know him more as Walter or his current title of Gunther, you damn sure have a healthy amount of respect for WWE's current top monster.  Yeah, there's Braun StrowmanOmos, and even Bray Wyatt, but none of them have that air of legitimacy or a record of pure dominance like Gunther has accumulated for himself.  He has shown it doesn't matter where he's residing, be it overseas in NXTUK, in Orlando, Florida on NXT, or his current stomping grounds on the SmackDown roster, Gunther has been the stoic face of dominance in WWE for years now, and as of late, he has restored the luster and respect to the Intercontinental Championship, once again making it into one of WWE's most prestigious titles.  How has he done that?  Through a series of grueling title defenses and if Madcap Moss has his way, Gunther will have his work cut out for him tonight on FOX.
