Gunther says to the surprise of no one, he is celebrating the jubilee of his 600 days as champion. Gunther appreciates Kaiser setting up this ceremony, but he doesn’t want it anymore. What’s the difference? 700 days, 800 days, and 1,000 days are a given. One thing will never change: The Ring General will be the greatest and longest-reigning Intercontinental Champion of all time. Gunther is running out of competition. There is no man worthy of challenging him for this great championship.

Jey says, “‘Main Event’ Jey Uso is now in your city!” Gunther says he gets it and mocks the gestures. Gunther says it’s simple gestures for a simple audience. The last time he saw Jey, he eliminated him from the Royal Rumble. Gunther expected he’d have a word with him, but this is not the way to do it. This is a celebration.

Gunther says, “Well, good for you. After 15 years, you finally developed the guts to step out of the shadow of your family and achieve something for yourself.” Jey Uso is not the first and will not be the last to ride on The Ring General’s coattail. When he beats Jey, he’ll beat him worse than his own family ever did. He’ll beat him so badly, he’ll long for the good old days when people couldn’t tell him and his brother apart. Gunther shoves him. Jey tackles Gunther, but Kaiser and Vinci quickly attack. Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston of The New Day run down for the save.

The night after the Royal Rumble has always been a fresh start of sorts. It begins the road to Wrestlemania.

Tonight during the Royal Rumble match, we have the chance to see the start of what can become one of the best clashes in WWE history between twin brothers.
