That takes care of that. The SpeakOut Movement may not have gotten the most attention in the wrestling world this year but it was one of the most important events to take place. Above all else, people being safe in the wrestling industry is more important than almost anything else and as a result, several people have been practically blackballed from the industry. There were a few names left to be dealt with, and now one of the biggest names’ future has been decided by a major player.
One of the higher profile names brought up in the SpeakOut Movement was Marty Scurll, who was not only a big name wrestler but also the new booker of Ring of Honor. You don’t get to see someone so young booking a major promotion so often and given how low Ring of Honor had sunk, Scurll was an interesting case. However, he has not wrestled in several months and now it might be even longer in the future.
Scurll has officially been removed from the Ring of Honor roster page on the company’s official site. While not confirmed, this would suggest that Scurll is gone from the company, at least as a wrestler. There is no word on what this means for Scurll’s future as the promotion’s booker. Scurll’s most recent match with the company took place in February and he has not wrestled elsewhere since.
The company has kept going in Scurll’s absence. Check out what they have been doing:
Opinion: I’m not sure what to think of this but if the company or its parent company has concluded that Scurll is guilty, you aren’t going to be seeing him in Ring of Honor again for a very long time (if ever). This is some serious stuff and a lot more important than a wrestling story, so hopefully things are not as bad as they seem. Scurll is a very talented guy, but if this is true, he isn’t going to be around, and he shouldn’t be.
Will Scurll be back? Who should book Ring of Honor in his absence? Let us know in the comments below.
