On Monday, Ring of Honor (ROH) announced on Twitter that they were mutually parting ways with Marty Scurll.
Scurll was held off of ROH TV following the accusations towards him in the #SpeakingOut movement during the summer. In June, ROH announced that they would be investigating the allegations. His profile had been removed from Ring of Honor’s website back in October, but nothing had been made official about his stance with the company until now.

Marty Scurll had been on and off with the company since 2016. In January 2020, he signed a multi-year contract that tied him to ROH moving forward and locked him in as their head booker as well. During his time with the company, he won the ROH Television Championship and the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Championships with his group, Villian Enterprises. His final match with the company came on Feb. 29, 2020, before COVID-19 forced ROH to stop taping television and PPV.
Ring of Honor returned to taping shows in August 2020 and most recently had their year-end Final Battle pay-per-view on Dec. 18. It was expected that Scurll would have a huge role in the company’s direction going forward but that will not be the case. With Scurll now a free agent, it will be interesting to see if another promotion opts to offer him a second chance. Only time will tell.
