Dalton Castle Defends The ROH World Championship Against Marty Scurll At Supercard Of Honor

Dalton Castle reached the pinnacle of professional wrestling when he captured the Ring of Honor World Championship at Final Battle 2017, defeating “The American Nightmare” Cody with his signature Bang-A-Rang! As ROH World Champion, Castle has maintained a whirlwind schedule of defenses including a successful defense against Punishment Martinez, defenses in Germany and Japan, and a career-defining victory against Jay Lethal that proved Castle has the endurance, stamina, and wrestling acumen to defeat one of the greatest World Champions of all-time.

“The Villain” Marty Scurll spent most of 2017 as Ring of Honor World Television Champion. Like Castle as World Champion, Scurll maintained a whirlwind schedule of defenses around the globe against the world’s best. Scurll has not slowed down and has seen his stock rise, with “The Villain” defeating Punishment Martinez at 16th Anniversary to earn a World Championship opportunity. Following Castle’s historic victory over Lethal, Scurll confronted Castle and issued the challenge to cash in his opportunity. ROH Enforcer Bully Ray came ringside and made the match official and it will take place in front of the LARGEST crowd in ROH history!

ROH WORLD CHAMPION DALTON CASTLE W/THE BOYS vs. “THE VILLAIN” MARTY SCURLL

“The Villain” made his Ring of Honor debut in November 2016 and raised eyebrows immediately when he defeated Dalton Castle in his very first bout. That same weekend, Scurll defeated Will Ospreay and became the Ring of Honor World Television Champion. Over the last 15+ months, Scurll became not only one of the greatest World Television Champions of all time but also has emerged as one of the top contenders for the ROH World Championship!

Scurll will receive his FIRST shot at the championship, ever, in New Orleans! But the opportunity did not come without a little villainry.

Scurll convinced all of the top contenders as well as champion Dalton Castle to agree to give him a championship opportunity should they emerge as World Champion. But instead of verbal manipulation, Scurll went ahead and defeated Punishment Martinez at 16th Anniversary to become the number one contender! He will get his championship opportunity in front of the biggest crowd in ROH history!

Castle has been on an incredible roll as Champion and seems to feed off the energy of the biggest crowds and under the brightest lights. But will he leave New Orleans as champion when he faces a man who has his number, an international star whom he has never defeated? Join us to find out!

Supercard of Honor XII will emanate from the UNO Lakefront Arena in New Orleans, LA on Saturday April 7!
