“The Villain” and former ROH World Television Champion Marty Scurll is continuing his run in Ring of Honor, per PWInsider as the site is reporting that Scurll has signed a new deal with the company. Scurll and Ring of Honor were working on a new deal since late 2019. The length of Marty’s new contract is unknown as of this writing.
As of this weekend, Scurll has taken on the lead booker role for Ring of Honor. Hunter “Delirious” Johnson, who has been the head booker and senior producer for ROH television will continue his duties on the creative side and he’ll be working alongside Marty. It is noted in the report that Marty was heavily involved with Ring of Honor’s Center Stage show on January 11th and that Ring of Honor’s free show in Baltimore next month is Marty’s idea. Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline added that Marty’s new deal is the most lucrative contract in Ring of Honor history.
Last month at NWA’s ‘Into The Fire’ pay-per-view, Marty Scurll appeared and confronted NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis. Aldis returned the favor and appeared at ROH’s Center Stage show and ambushed Marty’s Villain Enterprises stable-mate Flip Gordon.
Marty Scurll’s next career move was highly anticipated and per report, he’s staying with Ring of Honor, doing work with the National Wrestling Alliance and through Ring of Honor’s partnership with New Japan Pro-Wrestling, the former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion can continue working there as well.
Ring of Honor recently announced that Bandido inked a new deal with the company and at the Center Stage show, Bandido pinned Marty Scurll to win the ROH World Six-Man Tag Titles for himself, Flamita and Rey Horus.
