Marty Scurll cashed in on his free agency this past January when he was named the head booker of ROH. Most figured Scurll would join his friends in The Elite in AEW, but Scurll couldn't turn down the opportunity to have the pencil and lead ROH into the future.
Flip Gordon has become close friends with Scurll during their time in Villain Enterprises. And appearing on Busted Open Radio, Flip gave his reaction and the reaction of the locker room to the news that Scurll would be head booker.
"Obviously, there going to be questions when somebody on the roster has part of the book. But I took it as he's my friend, now I have to work extra hard. But friends push their friends harder. I didn't look at it as, 'my friend has the book, I have an easy path now.' No, he expects more out of me. If anything, he chews me out more than anybody and it's already getting on my nerves. But he wants me to succeed and he's so smart and creative. If anybody should have gotten [the book], it should have been him. And I think he can take ROH to heights they've never seen before," he said.
Gordon will be in ROH for the foreseeable future as he just signed a new multi-year deal with the company. You can find his comments on wanting to remain with ROH by clicking here.
