Marty Scurll is going all out to get ROH on the top of the internet wrestling community’s mind. I applaud him for his hustle this past week. I am also excited to see how ROH shows evolve over the next two or three months.
Also, Bully (Bubba) Ray has done a ton of interacting with WWE and WWE people this week. This would be the best of both worlds. He would still have a job in the business, which is good for him, but he would also be far away for the ROH product, which would be amazing.
Tyler has been a wrestling fan for 20 years. He’s from Columbus, Ohio. His Twitter account is @ringoftyler and he hosts a podcast over at @tandbwrestling.
