Karl Anderson Says He Will Defend The NEVER Openweight Title On His Time

Top WWE Star Karl Anderson of The O.C. recently appeared on WWE’s After The Bell podcast to discuss a number of topics such as how he will go back to NJPW on his time to defend his NEVER Openweight Title and how NJPW usually strips a champion who can’t make a show, but they are showing leniency because a match was announced when there wasn’t really any agreement on what they are going to do.

Karl Anderson said:

“I’m gonna go back on my time. New Japan Pro-Wrestling usually strips their champions when they can’t make a show. They threw a leniency in there because they announced the match when we hadn’t totally agreed what we were going to do. The dates were coming up…I’m going to comeback and defend my championship.”

Karl Anderson also discussed how he has been in constant communication with NJPW’s Rocky Romero about being excited to announce the date of the title match.

Karl Anderson said:

“I messaged Rocky Romero, he’s a great friend and one of the office brothers, and I go, ‘I can’t wait to announce this date because these people are really hating me right now.’ I’m keeping this title and never giving it back.”
