Hey Scott, seeing the news today that apparently before he decided on staying in ROH, AEW had been planning to debut Marty Scurll as the leader of the Dark Order on the final Dynamite of 2019 got me thinking about two questions.
1.) Do you think Scurll would have been a great fit in the Dark Order as their leader, salvaging one of their bigger duds of a storyline so far?
2.) Why do you think they still ran the angle where they attacked the Elite at the end of that episode even though they didn't have the big payoff without Scurll, considering they haven't even followed up on it since that night?
1. I thought he would have fit OK, but would have been better leading the Butcher and the Blade. Everyone is pretty sure that Broken Matt 2.0 is going to end up leading the Dark Order in March, and that will be awesome if they play it right. Could also be Luke Harper, finally getting to lead his own cult family.
2. It was a bad booking decision on their part. It happens. Plans change.
