Matt Taven Compares ROH’s Final Tapings To Attending His Own funeral

Back in October ROH announced that the company would be going on a hiatus for the first quarter of 2022. Not long after that, it was also announced that all current talent signed to the company would be released from their contracts. Talents were told if they wanted to go elsewhere that Ring Of Honor would work alongside the talent and make it happen. We have already former ROH Champion Jay Lethal make his way to AEW , but it looks like some talents that are sticking with ROH until the final date on December and like Dalton Castle other current ROH stars are expressing their opinion on the situation.

Matt Taven who is one-half of the reigning ROH Tag Team champions along with Mike Bennett recently recorded an episode of the ROHStrong Podcast and described the feelings at the tapings.

“I kept describing to people what the last tapings were like, and I was like ‘man, I never knew what it be like to be at my own funeral. But I think I experienced the closest thing to that. I remember walking into the lobby after I flew in. I was very positive after getting the news and just kind of upbeat. And I came in and there were all these sad faces in the lobby. So immediately, I just go to the dumbest thing I can think of. I’m like ‘what’s up sad boys?!’ I thought it get a big laugh, but it did not. All these guys are uncertain about their future and stuff. But the next day, the women’s division uplifted the entire locker room because they were so positive and they were just so happy. And it really was because Maria and Bobby Cruise had had a meeting with them. I wasn’t there, I don’t know what was said, but whatever was said, it was the right thing. They had put so much time and effort into that division, that I think those girls appreciated everything that they had done. I wish I knew what went down, because the next day it was like night and day, from when people landed in the airport. And it really all came from that women’s division for picking up the locker room.”

We will have to see what is next for Matt Taven and His Tag partner Mike Bennette after ROH completes its TV tapings. Below is the full interview.
