A notable name with ROH was Marty Scurll, who was accused by a woman of sexual assault in 2015 following an IPW UK show when she was 16 years old, which is the legal age in England. The woman claims Scurll sat in a chair, pulled out his penis, and told her to suck it, which she did. She goes on to claim Scurll took her into a cupboard, pulled down her underwear, and tried to penetrate her before a friend showed up and told him to leave. The woman says Scurll, "sexually assaulted a drunk child" in her allegation.
Scurll has issued two statements on the matter, with the most recent one being a more detailed statement.
