Marty Scurll has re-signed with Ring of Honor and is also joining the booking team, first reported by PWInsider’s Mike Johnson and confirmed by our Dave Meltzer.
Meltzer added it’s the most lucrative deal in company history.
Scurll’s ROH deal expired in November, but he continued to work dates for the company as the two sides worked toward a new contract. Johnson couldn’t confirm the number of years on the contract, but it’s thought to be multiple.
One of the more surprising aspects is the 31-year-old joining the booking team alongside Hunter “Delirious” Johnson, effective immediately. Mike Johnson reported that Scurll was heavily involved in the creative for both of the company’s shows this past weekend and that the upcoming free February 9th show in Baltimore was his idea. Delirous will remain with the company.
Scurll will still able to work for the NWA where he’s involved in an angle with world champion Nick Aldis that was part of ROH’s Saturday event. They run Sunday in Concord, NC.
