Marty Scurll and Matt Taven’s Contracts With ROH Set To Expire

During WrestleMania Weekend, Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling held a joint show at the sold out Madison Square Garden Arena. ROH’s portion of the show was maligned by many fans. Particularly the decision to put their world championship on Matt Taven instead of Marty Scurll. Since then the goodwill for ROH has diminished, matching the crowds at their recent shows.

Sports Illustrated has learned that both men’s contracts are about to expire with neither re-signing as of this writing.

Marty Scurll is set to be a free agent this November, Sports Illustrated has learned.

When Matt Taven won the Ring of Honor world title at the G1 Supercard this past April at Madison Square Garden in a ladder match against Jay Lethal and Scurll, it was widely assumed that a key part of that booking decision was to make Taven champ because Scurll’s contract would expire first. But that was not the case.

PWInsider reported last week that Taven’s contract is up in September, and Sports Illustrated has confirmed that Scurll’s current deal with ROH ends in November.

Neither Taven nor Scurll responded to a request for comment before this story was published.

With their free agency looming, it’s interesting to see where either man will end up. Marty specifically since he has ties to AEW as a former member of the Elite and ties to NXT with his girlfriend Deonna Purrazzo currently wrestling there.
