Singles League Champion
“Dangerous” Dan Murrell (11-4) 7 KOs
Defeated Ethan “Big Time” Erwin (7-2) at Schmoedown Live New York
Dan Murrell entered the league in 2016 and by his third match he had captured the Singles League title and defended it twice, before losing it to John Rocha. We would later recapture the title at Collider Collision 2017 in a Triple Threat match between John Rocha and Mark Reilly. Dan would also defend it in an unprecedented manner when Samm Levine challenged him immediately after he just reclaimed the title for the second time. In back-to-back matches Murrell put up 26 points, which remains the most points scored in one match.
After losing the Singles League title for the second time to Kristian Harloff two months later, Dan Murrell decided it was time to step away from the game. After 10 months, Dan Murrell returned to the Schmoedown and in the process suffered a tremendous defeat to Andrew Ghai. The match was deemed “Upset of the Year” at the 2018 Schmoedown Awards. However, Dan Murrell would only suffer one more defeat in his 2018 campaign, to Ethan Erwin in the Singles League Ultimate Schmoedown tournament semi final match. A win in the #1 Contender match against Clarke Wolfe held at Spectacular III secured his spot at the 2019 season premiere event in New York against the current champion Ethan Erwin.
In what may be deemed the greatest title match ever played in Schmoedown history, Dan Murrell became the first player to win the Singles League title three times.
Over Dan Murrell’s illustrious career he has set many marks for excellence in the Singles League.
