AEW signed Brodie Lee and Matt Hardy. They also inked a deal with Lance Archer, but Marty Scurll decided against signing with All Elite Wrestling.
Marty Scurll recently spoke to Wrestle Talk. He discussed his decision to not sign with AEW.
There were a lot of people who expected Scurll to sign with All Elite Wrestling. He’s still great friends with The Young Bucks and he loves them. The Villain is also very proud of AEW, but he decided to take on the challenges ROH offered instead.
“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
You can never say never in pro wrestling. Marty Scurll could find his way to working with AEW if they can work something out. ROH seems to be okay with Scurll venturing outside of their company walls as long as he remains with them.
