UPDATE: A new report has more details on Marty Scurll working the NJPW Strong tapings, including the reveal that he had an on-screen role at them. Fanbyte has confirmed the report from Fightful that the ROH alum was at the January 22nd tapings, and notes that he was involved in a post-match angle of some kind with Rocky Romero.

The site notes that there wasn’t any extra secrecy around Scurll’s involvement with the show other than the usual NDA about the taping’s content, with their source being quoted as saying, “They weren’t trying to hide him. I thought we were going to be the company that wasn’t booking these guys to get some buzz. They’re going to get buzz alright, but probably not the kind they’re looking for. And it just reeks of letting things slide because these people are all friends or whatever. I really just think fans should know his involvement beforehand, so they can choose to tune in or not.”

Scurll’s last show was ROH Gateway To Honor on February 29th, 2020. His last time working for NJPW was in the spring of 2019, when he worked the Best of the Super Juniors tournament.

ORIGINAL: Fightful Select reports that Marty Scurll was backstage at the recent NJPW Strong tapings and has interest in joining New Japan Pro Wrestling. It’s unknown if he was involved with the show, but he is interested. He hasn’t worked for NJPW since June 2019 in the Best of the Super Juniors tournament.

Scurll was previously signed to ROH and was a booker for the company, but he was quietly let go after being named in the #SpeakingOut movement last June.

It’s unknown if NJPW is interested in hiring Scurll or not at this time.
