Marty Scurll Re-Signs With ROH, Joins Creative Team

The Villain has made his decison

”The Villain’ Marty Scurll has signed a new contract with ROH.

Scurll’s original deal with the company expired back in November last year and he has been ‘testing the waters’ ever since by working for various promotions and weighing his options.

While many believed that Marty Scurll was most likely to sign with AEW once his contract expired, none of the AEW officials had made any confident comments about the same.

It was then reported that Ring Of Honor has offered the former Champion a very good deal with significant money. The former Being The Elite star was offered ‘WWE main roster money’ for working around 40 dates per year with ROH.

What’s interesting to note here is that according to the reports, Marty has not only signed as a performer but he will also be joining the booking team of the company.

It was initially reported that Marty Scurll will be taking on the role of lead booker but Pro Wrestling Sheet has since confirmed that he will be sharing the position with Executive Producer Hunter Johnston aka Delirious.

There is little debate about the fact that Ring of Honor lost its creative direction in 2019. Delerious will reportedly focus on producing ROH shows, while Scurll will be instrumental in strategizing the company’s “bigger picture.”

As part of his new role, Scurll will help rehabilitate the brand’s image. Part of that will involve strengthening its partnerships with New Japan Pro Wrestling and the National Wrestling Alliance. There has also been some buzz that Scurll will attempt to open a dialogue between ROH and All Elite Wrestling (AEW).

There is no word on the length of Marty’s new contract but Ring Of Honor has been signing talents for 2 years recently and it’s presumed that Scurll’s contract is also of a similar length.
