Joey Mercury Shares Another Message Exchange With ROH GM Greg Gilleland, Reveals Why Marty Scurll Didn't Get World Title Run

The ongoing saga of Ring of Honor's mismanagement continues.

Former producer Joey Mercury has released another set of messages between himself and GM Greg Gilleland, where pushed for Villain Enterprises member Marty Scurll to win the world title at last April's joint NJPW event G1 Supercard from Madison Square Garden, a match that was won by Matt Taven to the dismay of the fans.

Mercury's messages reveal that Gilleland and management believed that Taven was the safer choice since they knew "he would stay" despite Scurll being their most popular talent. Gilleland later admits that they couldn't get Taven over, and they made a mistake attempting to bring in Enzo and Big Cass for their "shoot fight" angle.

Finally, Mercury shares a message he had with star Flip Gordon who questioned by they were running such large venues when ticket sales were so low. Gilleland's response was that Gordonw wasn't a draw. You can check out the message exchange below. Social Media Interaction
