What makes a man a villain? Is it the words they say? Is it sinister behavior? Is it how they treat others?
For "The Villain" Marty Scurll, it is all of the above. It is a lifestyle.
For years, the fur-adorned, umbrella toting Scurll proved he was one of Europe's top competitors. His aggressive, finger-cracking, chicken-winging offense led Scurll to numerous championships and countless victories. A madness can be seen in his eyes - a madness that brought Scurll to Ring of Honor to compete against the best in the world.
Scurll capped an amazing 2016, which saw him become the first U.K.-born athlete to win PWG's prestigious Battle of Los Angeles tournament, with a victory in just his third ROH bout against long-time rival Will Ospreay to capture the ROH World Television Championship. Heading into 2017, Scurll remains unbeaten in singles competition, maintaining a heavy schedule of World Television championship defenses.
But Scurll has promised not to stop there - he has proclaimed 2017 to be the "Year of the Villain". And as his record shows, who is anyone to doubt him?
