Ring of Honor has announced via Twitter that they have mutually decided to part ways with ‘The Villain’ Marty Scurll.

Scurll was one of a number of pro wrestlers implicated by the #SpeakingOut movement that swept across social media in June 2020 and had been largely inactive since that time.
In response to the accusations made online, Scurll released a pair of statements that seemingly sought to contextualise the claims, as opposed to denying them.
However on June 25th, Ring of Honor announced that an investigation had been launched based on the allegations:
At Ring of Honor, we pride ourselves on the respectful and inclusive environment we have built, one that ensures all employees can work in a place where they feel safe and respected.
We take these matters extremely seriously and have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to this type of behavior.
Ring of Honor has launched an immediate investigation into the claims made against its currently contracted wrestlers. We will update you on our investigation once it concludes.
Scurll, who at the time had ascended to the Head of Creative role within ROH, was relieved of all management duties and replaced by former booker Delirious.
Following ROH’s tweeting notice of his departure, Scurll himself retweeted the post, adding credence to the notion that the decision had been mutually agreed upon between the two parties.
