Ring Of Honor has announced that Marty Scurll is no longer with the company. In a statement posted on their social media accounts, ROH said, “Marty Scurll and Ring Of Honor have mutually decided to part ways.”
Scurll was removed from the ROH roster back in October but the company had not publicly addressed his status until now.
There were questions about his future in the company and in the wrestling business after allegations surfaced from a woman who said Scurll sexually abused her in 2015 when she was 16 years old and intoxicated.
Scurll later released the following statement:
“I am aware that a young woman has bravely come forward with her account of sexual abuse by some members of the wrestling community in the UK 5 years ago, a community I was a part of.
Although I truly believe that our encounter that evening was consensual, and the fact that the encounter was legal; is almost not the point. I understand that she now views our encounter as part of a bigger problem within the wrestling community.
What concerns me at this moment is that from what I have been reading, she is a fan of wrestling and was made to feel unsafe within that community. This is not acceptable. I also understand that people have been attacking her on social media, and I implore you to please stop. She has a right to her voice and it is our responsibility to listen.”
