Marty Scurll is set to take part in one of the biggest matches thus far in his pro wrestling career.
On Wednesday during the press conference for Friday’s ROH 17th Anniversary pay-per-view, it was revealed that Scurll is cashing in his title shot to challenge the ROH World Champion at the G1 Supercard event.
Lethal is slated to make his next title defense as ROH World Champion against Matt Taven at the 17th Anniversary pay-per-view. Scurll vs. Kenny King is also on tap for this show.
If you recall, Scurll won ROH’s Survival of the Fittest tournament in November 2018 and as a result, has earned an ROH World Title Match. Lethal has been ROH World Champion since June.
