I mentioned recently in an episode of Express Talk that I feel as though the UK continues to pump out a vast number of tremendously talented in-ring performers that would take a very long time to list. But two names in particular have developed quite a following on a international level due in part to incredible performances at the Super Juniors and Battle of Los Angeles tournaments respectively. Those two names are Will Osprey and "The Villain" Marty Scrull the big deal is that they have signed exclusive contracts with Ring of Honor.
As of this writing this doesn't mean that Will and Marty will now leave their home base in the UK or not be able to compete in Japan anymore. Really what this means is that they can't compete for any other America company other than ROH and possibly PWG due to the agreement with those companies. I have mentioned in the past how I have felt that ROH's roster had been lacking a little depth and though they are only two people they still will do wonders for getting fresh contests out there for ROH.
Update: After last weekends events for ROH they have a new Ring of Honor Television Champion and his name is Will Osprey. This likely means that Will actually was able to secure the title win his first ever match in ROH. This in my book is a testament to how much ROH management actually believes in Will and the thought that he has a very bright future for the company. I'm also very excited to see what exactly Marty will bring to the table for ROH. Who would have thought two signings bring up so many different possibilities and with Final Battle right around the corner the timing is perfect!!
