ROH issued Fightful.com the following press release, announcing the debut of former TNA Champion Ken Anderson on April 28 in Hopkins, Minnesota.
As the list of defeated challengers grows and grows, the louder “The Villain” Marty Scurll gets. The self-described “Reign of Wickedness” began in London in just his third match during his first weekend in ROH. Since then Scurll has defeated Will Ospreay, Dragon Lee, Jonathan Gresham, Juice Robinson, Donovan Dijak, Sonjay Dutt, Kenny King, and former three-time ROH World Champion Adam Cole in front of the largest crowd in ROH history at Supercard of Honor XI!
But as the, admittedly, fighting champion continues to get louder and louder about his successes, world-class challengers from around the world line up to take their best shot at “The Villain”. And a former world champion has his eyes set on Scurll at Masters of the Craft!
Ken Anderson makes his ROH debut in Hopkins, MN and has a chance to capture championship gold on his very first night! Scurll, and champions before him like Jay Lethal, Tomohiro Ishii, and Bobby Fish before him have elevated the ROH World Television Championship to the level of the ROH World Championship and Anderson looks for an opportunity to add his name to this storied lineage.
Anderson has been absent from nationally televised pro wrestling since leaving TNA Wrestling in early 2016. Anderson had spent 6 years in the company, which he joined six months after leaving WWE. Anderson had spent another four years in WWE.
