TK was the person in the article and the wrestler who hurt him was PCO.

A dynamite situation. There are ROH wrestlers who think publicly siding with ROH currently will kill their career. Equally siding with Joey Mercury is a risk as Joey is such a wildcard. A bad weekend for ROH wrestlers who want just want to keep the head down and get on with it. Social media has really changed the industry. Equally many people think you need to register your reaction immediately. When in fact the actual smart move is just wait it out and the news cycle gets shorter and shorter. It is a Big 4 PPV and a Smackdown-Takeover-Survivor Series-Raw extended weekend too.

The other thing from the article was that the reason why Maria Manic's contract expired without having a match is because she didn't tell Ring of Honor that it was expiring.   Imagine thinking that this is now contracts are done in the real world.  Under that logic wrestlers could just stay quiet and get out of their contract

Shit like that is what drove Corny over the edge with ROH and made Greg the Office Boy a punchline.

Yeah, you're right. If you watch the Breaking Kayfabe shoot interview Cornette did with KC, this is the exact kind of thing he was going insane over in ROH when he worked there around 6 years ago.  He had the exact same complaints about lack of medical care for the wrestlers as well, and this kind of stuff is why he quit ROH altogether.

There is also a text that Joey Mercury leaked that explained why they didn't put the title on Marty Scurill and put it on Matt Taven.  While also shitting on Flip Gordon at the same time.  Basically it confirms what everyone already knew about why Taven was the champion

Now stay with me here because I'm am going to talk a little crazy. Maybe, don't dick around with guys for 80% of their contract and then put the belt on them the last 4 months of the deal?

Worth noting that they announced a match for Marty at the Final Battle TV taping and it's NOT a 6 man title defense. They can always add one late (a lot of times guys work twice on the TV tapings), but fodder for the speculation...

They probably forgot he had the belt.

Things can change in a month. But I'd really be shocked if goes anywhere. Talked to three different people who I don't believe talk to each other today about it. ROH is offering "insane" and "massive" money for him to stay.

One person added that Marty wants to get more than money to feel good about the move. Whether that means the "book" or a seat on the booking committee I don't know.

I guess it depends on what he wants at this stage in his career. Get more money to stay in a promotion going nowhere, or a lesser offer (that probably would still be pretty good) to get in on something that actually has a direction in mind.

Yeah, I honestly don't know why he would stick around. The stench on ROH in light of Joey Mercury & Kelly Klein's allegations is extremely toxic. I would understand if ROH was the only promotion offering him money but I seriously doubt that both AEW & WWE won't make him an offer. To me - and it's strictly my opinion - Marty Scurll would be a much bigger star everywhere except in Ring of Honor.

Apart from Matt Taven, who has zero hype whatsoever and whose reign has totally tanked the promotion anyway (in his case, I wonder why ROH would want to keep him) and the Briscoes for obvious reasons, I dunno why anyone with a profile would want to stay in ROH while WWE and AEW are in a war for talent. Especially NXT signing anyone just for them not to show up in AEW. It will not last forever. Scurll staying in ROH now makes no sense. He's gonna waste years of his career in a dying promotion with no guarantee of being a sought after commodity in a few years (and will AEW will even be a factor then, no one knows, so that's another risk). Right now, he could rule NXT feuding against Adam Cole or be a big name in AEW. Same goes for guys like PCO (whom I guess would love to get another shot at making it in WWE), Brody King (AEW badly needs a guy like him) and Rush (who can do whatever the hell he wants). And whatever side on the fence they go will only improve their profile. Staying in ROH makes them afterthoughts at best.

Of those guys, PCO has pretty explicitly indicated he's taking the biggest offer given the stage he's at in his career. And Brody is almost certainly following Marty. (I don't know about Rush - he pretty clearly signed with ROH because of CMLL, so with his relationship with them in the tank, I'd think he'll explore options.)

If I'm Marty, the only way I'd consider taking the offer is if I got the book and could mold the promotion. I've said many times ROH's greatest mistake was not completely giving the Elite the keys to the castle early in 2018. If Marty wants the keys now, when him leaving would basically put a final nail in the coffin of a lot of people's interest in ROH, they should do it. (I agree he'd be better off in a lot of ways in AEW or NXT, but maybe this would be his dream gig?)
