Marty Scurll surprised the wrestling world earlier this year when he made the decision to re-sign with Ring of Honor over joining The Elite in AEW, and now he’s explained why.
As you may recall, Scurll’s new deal also included the wrestler becoming one of ROH’s head bookers when he put pen to paper in January.
Speaking with WrestleTalk, Marty said the following in regard to his decision:
“I’m sure most expected me to go to AEW, and of course, Matt & Nick (The Young Bucks) are two of my best friends in the whole entire world. I love them and I love what they are doing. I’m very proud of them. 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.”
