The feud between Nick Aldis and Marty Scurll is heating up, and it is spanning across promotions.
At the Crockett Cup in April, Aldis defeated Scurll in singles action to retain the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship. Scurll’s next appearance in NWA would not be until a surprise entrance to close their Into the Fire PPV in December. Scurll made his way through the audience as a teaser to possibly be Aldis’ future opponent. Scurll explained that he came to NWA to cause noise.
Well, it looks like Aldis returned the favor and made some noise himself by doing a run-in at ROH’s Saturday Night At Center Stage in Atlanta, Georgia. Aldis attacked Flip Gordon after the main event as the show went off the air.

The main event was PCO defending the World Championship against Rush. With a new Ingobernables crew for Rush, the finish sounds like he reverted to his old rudo ways. Dragon Lee and Kenny King helped their compadre until Villain Enterprises chased them off. Villain Enterprises consists of Marty Scurll, Brody King, Flip Gordon, and PCO. In the end, Rush beat up the referee to lose by disqualification. Rush did that often in CMLL, because he was more focused on humiliating his opponents than winning matches.
After all of that, a security guard entered the ring. That person turned out to be Nick Aldis. He put a quick clobbering on Gordon. Aldis made haste when Scurll ran down to the ring.
Cross promotional feuds are always fun, but they generally result in unfinished business. For this particular scenario, let’s hope the rumors are true of Scurll getting an ROH contract offer that allows dates for NWA, NJPW, and possibly AEW. Fans of NWA and ROH need Aldis versus Scurll. And it would be super awesome if the two promotions pulled together to try a joint show.
In other news involving Scurll, Villain Enterprises lost the World Six-Man Tag Team Championship to Flamita, Bandido, and Rey Horus at the same ROH show. Villain Enterprises was scheduled to defend those titles on Sunday against Rush, Dragon Lee, and Kenny King, but perhaps that will change due to the title change. Or perhaps not since Rush will probably be more interested in a fight with Villain Enterprises rather than the titles.
Do you like Nick Aldis paying back Marty Scurll in this manner? Do the cross promotion appearances make you more interested in the feud?
