It was announced yesterday that, as part of the "Supercard of Honor VII" iPPV event on 4/5, international wrestling superstar "Machine Gun" Karl Anderson is making his return to ROH for the first time since late 2007 to face Roderick Strong.
On the heels of that huge announcement, ROHWrestling.com has also confirmed that Anderson will participate in the "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV Tapings the following day that are taking place in the Grand Ballroom of the Hammerstein. His opponent that afternoon: "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin!
"Anderson is an impressive athlete." said Elgin to ROHWrestling.com, "He has become an absolute beast during his time in Japan. Between his tag title reigns and nearly became the IWGP Heavyweight Champion this year, Karl Anderson is a serious threat to any man in the wrestling ring. Luckily I am not just any man. I have said it before, I will continue to say it, not all men were created equal. Roderick is certainly not my equal, I proved that in Chicago, and I don't think he is the equal of Anderson either. Me, on the other hand, I know I am Machine Gun's equal if not his better. It's no disrespect to what he's done, it's just the absolute belief I have to have in myself. I know I will go into this match as the #1 Contender after I beat Jay Lethal at Supercard, I know I will beat Anderson in what I am sure will be a hell of a fight, and I know I will be the ROH World Champion sooner rather than later."
It's "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin versus "Machine Gun" Karl Anderson! It's all part of our ROH TV Taping going down on the afternoon of 4/6 in NYC and, with tickets for "Supercard of Honor VII" all sold out, this is your only chance to see the absolute best professional wrestling on the planet during the biggest wrestling weekend of the year! Tickets for our April 6th afternoon event are available right here in the ROH Store!
