Marty Scurll spoke to Sports Illustrated about his intentions to conquer Ring of Honor before WWE.
“Right now, I’m very much concentrated on conquering Ring of Honor piece by piece,” said Scurll. “The WWE has the largest amount of eyes on it and is the biggest wrestling company in the world. It would be a huge honor for myself to work there, but am I going to be given the same ‘Villain’ mic time? I’ve got a story to tell. Would I get that chance there? I don’t know. Yes, it would lead to more eyes, but will it be the character I want to get out there?
“I already started in Ring of Honor by winning the TV title on my very first weekend. That’s unheard of —Will Ospreay did it, too, but it doesn’t count because he lost it in his very first title defense. I won the TV title, I’ll win the tag team titles, and I’ll win the world heavyweight title in Ring of Honor.”
‘The Villain’ will be named #3 on Sports Illustrated’s list of top five wrestlers of 2016.
“I’ve come to Ring of Honor to upset people,” said Scurll. “I’ve been watching the Ring of Honor wrestlers for a long time, and if you ask me, a lot of people seem firmly in their comfort zones. I think it’s about time the lads in Ring of Honor woke up and smelled the English cup of tea. ‘The Villain’ is here now, and ‘The Villain’ is coming for the Ring of Honor heavyweight title. I will not finish 2017 without the Ring of Honor heavyweight title around my waist. 2016 has been the year of ‘The Villain,’ and I don’t think there is any doubt about who the wrestler of the year is – but I’m promising you right now that 2017 will be, oh, so much sweeter.”
