Marty Scurll: The Astray Member Of The Elite, Will He Join AEW (All Elite Wrestling)?
There was another man who was featured in YouTube series Being The Elite rather prominently before AEW (All Elite Wrestling) was established. This was ‘The Villain’ Marty Scurll, and it’s only a matter to time before he shows up and brings his brand of tricky to the growing company.
Who Is Marty Scurll?
Often dressed in a long coat and a plague mask for entrances, Marty Scrull is one of the best wrestlers around today from a technical standpoint, a former ROH Television Champion, Progress Heavyweight Champion, IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion, and current holds ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champion with Brody King and PCO as Villain Enterprises.
A force in both tag team and singles wrestling, he also just oozes charisma, hanging fans on every move he does in the ring. Before Pete Dunne popularized it for WWE audiences, Marty was shushing crowds before filling an arena with the sound of his opponents fingers cracking. His finisher is the Crossface Chickenwing, a move which was given to him by the legendary Bob Backlund, and one he uses to amazing success. He’s simply an absolute joy to watch.
Why Was He Left Behind?
Being closely knit with The Young Bucks & Cody, it was a surprise to some that he hasn’t shown up in AEW yet. This is because he is still under contract with Ring of Honor, a deal which is reportedly set to end this year. Due to ROH having lost all momentum, this has really cooled off any hype Scurll had built up in recent years, something AEW will need to address once The Villain arrives.
The Advantage To Arriving Late To The Party
Marty will be coming into an already established company, meaning he won’t have gotten lost in the shuffle that was the beginning of AEW. Outside of their womens division, which needs some work, AEW has their divisions pretty defined, and Marty can fit into any of them, while also being something fresh for the audience once he arrives. He can be used strategically to brighten up a storyline like The Inner Circle vs. The Elite if that happens to lose steam by the time he becomes available.
Marty Scrull is sure to make an impact in AEW within the next few months, unless he decides to resign with Ring Of Honor, or go to another company like NJPW to continue ruining Will Ospreays life. AEW seems his most likely destination, but nothing is ever guaranteed in professional wrestling.
