Despite the belief that he would jump to All Elite Wrestling around the turn of this year in order to join his former friends in The Elite, Marty Scurll opted to re-sign with Ring of Honor. By doing so, Scurll also became ROH's head booker.
Speaking on the new ROHStrong podcast, Scurll discussed potentially being the face of the organization while simultaneously wielding the booker's pen, and justifying that possible duality by defending his credentials as an established wrestler.
"What I've achieved in ROH speaks for itself," said Scurll. "I was booked as a top guy beforehand; there's no reason for that to stop. It's not like I was an undercard guy, then I became booker, and now I'm World Champion. I'm always going to make the best decisions, not for myself, but for the company.
"If me being World Champion is best for the company, then we'll do that, despite my other roles. At the end of the day, the fans are going to tell you if they believe in something or not. If I'm booked on top, right now, I don't think any of the fans are going to say, 'Why he's on top?' I understand there's somewhat of a conflict of interest.
"I have Ring of Honor's best interest at heart, I want everyone to succeed. And I have to now because my name is on the line. I don't have any ulterior motives."
