Two International Stars Sign Exclusive ROH Deals
Will Ospreay and Marty Scurll to Complete in ROH Beyond UK Tour!
The professional wrestling world was abuzz when Ring of Honor announced that the “Aerial Assassin” Will Ospreay and “The Villain” Marty Scurll would be appearing on ROH’s Reach for the Sky Tour events in their home country, the United Kingdom. Many assumed that this would just be a temporary arrangement to showcase two of the UK’s best wrestling free agents in a ROH ring. Ring of Honor are proud to announce that both Will Ospreay and Marty Scurll have signed exclusive Ring of Honor contracts that will see both men compete beyond the UK tour!
Ospreay gained undeniable international acclaim in 2016 by becoming the youngest-ever and first English winner of the prestigious Best of the Super Juniors Tournament hosted by New Japan Pro-Wrestling. Once one of the best-kept secrets in pro wrestling, Ospreay is one of the most in-demand talents in the world dazzling fans with his aerial tactics and mat wrestling! Scurll is no stranger to UK fans but his transformation into the man known as “The Villain” has propelled Scurll to previous unseen heights. In perhaps of the deepest Pro Wrestling Guerrilla “Battle for Los Angeles” tournament fields in history, Scurll cemented his mark in the United States by defeating five of the world’s best independent stars in four matches to become the first UK star to win BOLA!
These two will be tested right out of the gate: on November 18 in Liverpool, Scurll will face one of ROH’s most popular stars, Dalton Castle while Ospreay will face the ROH World Television Champion Bobby Fish in a Proving Ground Match! This is a big opportunity for Will Ospreay, although he has recently expressed his discontent with it not being for the title. Ospreay feels that even though this is his first ROH match, he is well proven internationally and deserves the title shot just as much as anyone else on the roster. The next night, November 19, these men who have no love lost for one another will attempt to put their differences aside for one night in an attempt to defeat the ROH World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks in a non-title bout! Finally, on November 20 in London, Ospreay and Scurll will stand on opposite sides of the ring from one another since the Finals of BOLA when they clash one-on-one in London!
These two international talents have the potential to reshape Ring of Honor and no title should be considered safe.
