Marty Scurll On If He'd Work For WWE

Marty Scurll On If He'd Work For WWE

Recently on The Jim Ross Report, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross spoke with the one-time ROH World Television Champion Marty Scurll.

Marty says he's very fortunate to have a lot of creative freedom in both ROH and NJPW, and he also said that WWE is no longer the be all end all for pro wrestlers anymore. There's something a bit more attractive about just being your own boss. 

"Most recently with the growth of things like New Japan and even companies like Ring Of Honor and stuff we've been doing, it [has] given us another platform to make money and not just provide for our families, but make good money. We've got out shirts in every single mall in America now. We're running stadium shows now. There are Pop! Funkos out there for us. It's like, 'wow'. We're in a position now where maybe we don't have to work in the WWE to make good money." Scurll continued, "and obviously there is something very satisfying about being your own boss. Like, as an independent contractor, [pro] wrestlers are always independent contractors, but they'll always be questioned, 'oh, are they really independent contractors?' Right, but myself, I'll be an independent contractor and I'm going to make sure that I am my own boss, that I pick my own hours. I'm going to make my own business decisions. I'm going to be where I want to be when I want to be and that's really cool."

He's also unsure if he ever wants to bother going to WWE. 

"Most of the jobs I had when I was younger, I got fired from. I never had the attention span. I had good grades in school, but I was always in trouble. I used to get suspended and I'm not very good at being told what to do. And that's a fault of mine for sure, but in this wrestling, I feel like I can make it work. So, like I said before, I'm always going to work best, I think, doing things on my own. In terms of WWE, great company, I'm not sure if that's ever something that I would really want to do. At the same time, I'd be lying if I told you I hadn't thought about doing my entrance, for example, at a WrestleMania. I'm sure that could be a hell of a production and something the fans can really get behind. And it just has to be on the right terms." Scurll added, "it always has to be what's best for me."
