Earlier this year, news broke that Marty Scurll had signed a big money deal to stay with Ring of Honor that gave him booking power and still wrestle for other promotions.
Scurll spoke about his decision when he did an interview with WrestleTalk’s Louis Dangoor.
Before this deal was made, many fans thought that he would go to AEW due to his friendship with Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks.
This is something that Scurll brought up when asked about his decision as he noted that he considers The Young bucks two of his best friends in the world and is proud of what they’re doing in AEW.
“When it came to my decision though, I, like them, had my own vision, my own dreams, and the opportunity to create a promotion in my own vision was something I always wanted and couldn’t turn down. I’ve been wrestling for a long time and it was time to do something new and set a new challenge for myself. ROH have always been amazing to me, and I’m very grateful for the opportunity to be more involved. They have the trust in me, and it really gives me the chance to be creative, which I’ve always enjoyed more than anything. I have great relationships with Tony, Cody and Kenny, and it’s cool that we’re all doing our own things and making a splash in the wrestling world.”Scurll also talked about his new role with Ring of Honor, the promotion trusting him with the new role and more.
