Marty Scurll's dance card is filling up as one match has been made official and another has been announced for future events.
First, Scurll vs. Jay White is official for ROH Supercard of Honor on Apr. 4. Scurll made a surprise appearance at NJPW New Beginning USA in Durham on Monday, challenging White to the match. White accepted later in the week, making things official in Lakeland. It is the first official match for ROH Supercard of Honor.
It’ll be “Villain” versus “Switchblade” in an international dream match at Supercard of Honor on April 4 in Lakeland, Fla.!
Marty Scurll shocked the wrestling world by showing up at New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s show in Raleigh, N.C., earlier this week and challenging White to a match at Supercard of Honor. White released a video this morning accepting the challenge.
White, the leader of Bullet Club, accused Scurll, a former Bullet Club member, of challenging him as a means of attempting to regain relevance.
“You see how Bullet Club is the best that it’s ever been with me at the forefront and you, Marty, nowhere to be seen,” White said with a smirk. “So you want to challenge the man that single-handedly sold out Madison Square Garden, and you want me to come to Ring of Honor and breathe life back into the place that you call home. … At Supercard of Honor, you’re on.”
Both Scurll and White have outstanding resumes. White, a native of New Zealand, is a former IWGP Heavyweight, Intercontinental and U.S. champion. Scurll, hailing from
Cambridge, England, has won titles all over the world, including the ROH World Television Title and IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title.
Their paths have crossed on a few occasions over the years, but Supercard of Honor will mark the first time Scurll and White have faced each other with the eyes of the entire wrestling world upon them.
In other Scurll news, he will team with Villain Enterprises running mate Flip Gordon to take on former Generation Next members Alex Shelley & Matt Sydal at ROH Past vs. Present. Though Sydal and Shelley are former members of Generation Next, their time in the group never overlapped. Homicide vs. Brody King is also scheduled for the event.
