Marty Scurll Denies Reports That His All In Match With Kazuchika Okada Went Long

Marty Scurll wants to set the record straight on his All In match with Kazuchika Okada.

Speaking to Sean Mooney on Prime Time With Sean Mooney, Scurll was asked whether or not his match with Okada went over time. As previously reported, Scurll's bout with Okada went at least 10 minutes over their scheduled time. As a result, the main event six-man tag had to be cut short for the show to make it off air in time.

Scurll denied the report and subsequent heat.

"We went a minute over. People are saying '14 minutes' but no, the show ran 14 minutes over. A bunch of the other matches went over. Our match was crucified because we were the match before last. So it looks like 'These guys went over.' No, the show went over."

Scurll continued by saying he got the blessing to go as long as he wanted. "Before I went out, Nick Jackson said to me and Okada, 'Guys, whatever you do, don't cut anything. Just do whatever you do. Even if we go on dark tonight, just do whatever you gotta do.'

"People saying, 'You guys went 14 minutes over.' Ok, so we did 26 minutes. You're suggesting that they booked a semi-main with months and months of build to have a 12 minute match? It's funny these ideas people get in their heads and the stuff you read in the dirt sheets."

After the show went off air, Bullet Club members Kenny Omega, Cody Rhodes, and The Young Bucks came out for a curtain call. Scurll was noticeably absent. Reports indicate that he was still upset over the match going long, but Scurll maintains that it was simply a misunderstanding that happens often within the group.

"I didn't know it was going on. I was in the semi-main. I finished my match, I was called down or whatever. I was in the shower. I didn't have a clue. I'm pretty sure they cut the monitors in our room because we had gone off air. This has happened a whole bunch of times at Ring of Honor shows. Majority of Ring of Honor shows, Bullet Club will come out and do a bit. I'll be in the ring with Cody and be like, 'Bucks, Bucks, get out here. Come on Bucks.' And they'll be in the shower, no idea what's going on."

Scurll finished by saying he apologized to Matt Jackson for missing the curtain call and that his absence doesn't mean he's leaving the Bullet Club.
