Marty Scurll recently spoke with Justin Barrasso of SI.com about various topics. As seen at last week’s Ring of Honor’s War of the Worlds pay per view in New York City, longtime Bullet Club member Adam Cole was kicked out of the group as is expected to sign with WWE. Scurll was revealed as the newest member of the Bullet Club at the event as he attacked Cole along with The Young Bucks. During the interview, he was asked about joining the group.
“I am Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks’ chosen villain,” said Scurll, who attacked Adam Cole after his loss to Hiroshi Tanahashi. “The truth is Adam Cole couldn’t cut the mustard anymore, and we replaced him in the most spectacular fashion. You can see the events leading to this on the YouTube series ‘Being The Elite.’ It’s absolutely awesome. We’re badasses and we have a vision for wrestling that we express every chance we get. We don’t play by ‘the rules of wrestling’. We rewrite them and revolutionize the business.”
Now that he is the Bullet Club, he is looking for more and promised to redefine Bullet Club. When asked about his goals for the rest of this year, he noted that is a goal driven person and that he wants to bring former WWE Champion CM Punk out of retirement for one match. Punk has said in the past that he would be open to wrestling again but not in WWE. Although the chances of Punk returning to the squared circle are slim, Scurll said that it would be a dream match for him.
“I am goal driven, but a lot of them are things you may not suspect,” said Scurll. “I’d like to bring CM Punk out of retirement and wrestle him, that would be pretty cool, wouldn’t it? That’s a ‘dream match’ of mine. Bullet Club is now complete. We have all countries represented. We are Bullet Club worldwide. We will continue to push boundaries and rewrite the rules of pro wrestling—not what pro wrestling ‘should be’, but what it ‘can be’—and, most importantly, continue to be the most entertaining acts in pro wrestling. We’ll hit the mainstream, and you can watch us along the whole way on ‘Being The Elite’. It’s an amazing time to be a wrestler and a fan of wrestling. Wrestling is cool again.”
Scurll also talked about New Japan’s 25th annual Best of the Super Juniors tournament, Randy Orton, and more. You can read the entire interview here.
