Matt Jackson took to his Instagram stories to answer a series of fan questions over the weekend.
Jackson was asked by a fan whether Marty Scurll was set to be The Exalted One of the Dark Order, which had been reported elsewhere. In response to the question, Matt simply stated, "Nope."
Scurll's ROH contract expired in November 2019 and he decided to re-sign with the company in January, taking on the role of head booker as well. The Elite teased "Marty" on Being The Elite for weeks with many believing the reference was pointing to Scurll joining them in AEW. The reveal ended up being Marty Jannetty.
Other highlights from the Q&A session:
On a return to NJPW: “NJPW helped put us on the map and I’m incredibly proud of our body of work there over six plus years. We will not be returning any time soon though.”
On AEW going to Toyota Arena in Ontario, California: “We booked a date. Hopefully I can share when soon.”
A tag team he’s never wrestled before but always wanted to: “FTR [The Revival].”
Thoughts on the hardest part of being AEW EVP and also a wrestler: “Very little time to prepare for my own matches.”
Who he thinks will be the top star in AEW in one year: “Hangman [Adam Page].”
On if he’s ever rejected anyone pitching a crazy idea for a match: “I’m usually the one pitching the wild idea.”
Thoughts on Excalibur on commentary for AEW: “He’s the first person I wanted for the job. Nobody better.”
Favorite AEW match so far: “Young Bucks vs. Private Party.”
On possibility of showing BTE clips on Dynamite: “I’m okay with BTE being the black sheep of even a company that I help run. It’s my favorite limitless place to express myself with no risks. Afraid to try something new, fresh, or crazy? Try it here first.”
Greatest accomplishment would be if his career ended tomorrow: “Being at the forefront of a major boom in the economy of wrestling. Helping all of the boys get paid a proper living wage.”
Most dangerous spot he was ever involved in: “Indytaker through a table while Nick jumped off of a ten-foot ladder. Nearly broke my back.”
