- Roderick Strong recently told Nigel McGuinness that he wanted the best competition possible for Supercard of Honor VII. McGuinness has now announced that Strong will be going one on one with Karl "Machine Gun" Anderson.
Anderson has only competed for ROH twice, but he is a former GHC Heavyweight Tag Team Champion, IWGP Tag team Champion, winner of the 2009 G1 Climax Tag League with Giant Bernard and winner of the 2012 World Tag League with Hirooki Goto.
Strong had this to say to ROHWrestling.com: "It's been awhile but this isn't the first time me and Karl have locked up. He's gone on to have a little bit of success here and there and I've become Mister ROH, Mister Triple Crown, the hardest working man in this locker room bro. I'm glad Nigel went and found me some real competition for New York though cause I could certainly use the workout after having to dumb it down lately for that meathead Elgin. This is the match that should be for a shot at the World Title man, not anything involving that clown. Keep an eye on me in New York Nigel cause after the beating I'm going to lay on Anderson, you won't have a choice but to get me into that title picture."
- ROH officials have also announced that Anderson will participate in the TV tapings following Supercard of Honor VII, in a match against Michael Elgin.
Elgin had this to say to ROHWrestling.com: "Anderson is an impressive athlete. 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."
