Matt Riddle and other WWE Superstars have been pictured training with a disgraced former New Japan and Ring of Honor star.
Current WWE star Matt Riddle has sparked controversy online by sharing a photo from Daniel Gracie Brazilian jiu-jitsu dojo in Orange County, FL alongside Marty Scurll. Also pictured were Karrion Kross, Shinsuke Nakamura and Sumie Sakai.
Back in 2020 Marty Scurll faced accusations that he had sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl. The former New Japan Pro Wrestling star later issued a statement regarding the allegations where he didn’t deny that the encounter took place, instead insisting that it was consensual.
Following the allegations made against Scurll he was stripped of booking duties in ROH and released from the company soon after.
Despite falling from favour with a number of major companies, Scurll continues to regularly feature on the independent scene. His most recent bout coming in Germany on July 24th.

Riddle is currently preparing to compete at WWE Clash At The Castle against Seth Rollins. The rivalry between the two men has become increasingly heated in recent weeks with Rollins getting very personal on the most recent episode of Raw. The former World Champion took aim at Riddle during an interview segment, commenting that he has no family because his wife and children have him.
Interestingly, SmackDown Women’s Champion Liv Morgan recently shared footage of herself training with Riddle at the same dojo.
