Matt Taven: The ROH World Title Is Always In The Back Of My Mind, I Never Got My Rematch

Matt Taven says that the ROH World Championship could be in his future.

In April 2019, Matt Taven shocked the world and became ROH World Champion for the first time in his career. Taven's reign with the belt went on to last 177 days, where he defended the title against the likes of Alex Shelley, PCO, Jeff Cobb, and Flip Gordon.

Taven would lose the championship to RUSH at the Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view in September 2019. After losing the title, Taven never got a rematch for the belt within the confines of the company.

In a new interview with Fightful, Taven was asked about the possibility of chasing after the prestigious championship in the near future.

"Always. That’s always been something in the back of my mind and actually, technically, I’ve never gotten my title rematch after losing the belt to Rush. I was injured shortly afterwards and came back and won the tag titles, and I’ve never had my championship rematch. So its something that’s been in my back pocket and whenever it’s time to play that card, I’ll pull it out."

Eddie Kingston is the current reigning and defending ROH World Champion. Kingston won the belt on the September 20 episode of AEW Dynamite, as he defeated Claudio Castagnoli for the title in a singles match.

Elsewhere in the interview, Taven talked about Leyla Hirsch being an unofficial member of The Kingdom. Fans can learn more by clicking here.
