Indie News: Marty Scurll talks about WWE and joining the Bullet Club
What’s the story?
British star Marty Scurll recently had an interview with Channel Guide where he discussed joining the Bullet Club, a move to WWE and much more. The Villain said that he was a natural fit for the Bullet Club, and, most interestingly, he also appeared to be enthused by the prospect of working with Vince McMahon.
In case you didn’t know…
Marty Scurll is a current Bullet Club and one of the hottest performers on the Indy scene. Currently signed with Ring of Honor, Scurll has performed for TNA in the past and is also a former Progress Wrestling champion.
Scurll made his ROH debut in 2016 and won the company’s TV Title within the first year. Earlier this year, “The Villain” joined the Bullet Club at War of the Worlds. Scurll replaced Adam Cole, who was on his way out of the company at the time.
The heart of the matter
During his interview with Channel Guide, Scurll stated that he loved the angle of joining the Bullet Club and how it all unfolded at the War of the Worlds PPV. He also said that he wished to end every PPV in a manner that would excite every wrestling fan in the world. He said:
"I only knew a few weeks out. It was a natural fit with myself just about to debut for New Japan, and I had been spending a lot of time with the Young Bucks, who are two of my best friends in the business. I was nervous, but I also love new challenges. I loved the angle we did for it.
Scurll then added that joining the Bullet Club had helped him rise in the wrestling business. He also said that the Bullet Club was very different than it had been in the past. The former British Cruiserweight champion claims that with the likes of Omega, Cody, Page and others the group is a collection of larger than life characters.
“The Villain” also said he has been mentored by Matt and Nick Jackson when it comes to the business. Scurll also said that Cody is on an amazing run since leaving WWE and he claims Kenny Omega to be the best wrestler on the planet. When quizzed about joining the WWE, he said:
"Right now, I love what I'm doing. I want to conquer ROH and New Japan. I want to continue to push the boundaries and break the mold of what a wrestler without the machine behind them can do. In terms of 'The Villain' and WWE, I'm pretty sure if they saw opportunity in me to make money, I'm sure they'd let me have a lot of creative freedom. But who knows if they do. I do see a lot of Villain shirts on their programming though. I would love to pick the brain of Vince McMahon. 'The Villain' and the 'Evil Genius' discussing the business over a steak dinner sounds divine."
Currently being signed with ROH, Scurll will next be in action for the company at the Death before Dishonor PPV on 22nd September 2017. “The Villain” will face current PWG Heavyweight champion Chuck Taylor at the event.
Earlier in the year, Scurll made his debut for NJPW when he represented the Bullet Club at this year’s Best of Super Juniors. It is likely that he will make more appearances for the Japanese company sooner rather than later.
Personally, I don’t want Marty Scurll to leave ROH and sign for WWE. WWE is currently flooded with numerous talented men, so there is no need for them to sign “The Villain” anytime soon. Scurll also fits perfectly in the Bullet Club as their junior heavyweight representative.
