Former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Marty Scurll has been pulled from all future NJPW Strong appearances, with no plans from the promotion to use him going forward, according to news first reported by Super J-Cast and later confirmed by Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer.

Scurll was backstage at a recent NJPW Strong taping in Los Angeles and had expressed his interest in re-joining the company, which led to him having an on-screen role at those recent tapings and involvement in a post-match angle with Rocky Romero that has yet to be aired as part of NJPW Strong.
