Matt Taven and Vincent will settle the score at ROH 19th Anniversary.
Ring of Honor announced former teammates Taven and Vincent will clash in an unsanctioned match at the 19th Anniversary event on Friday, March 26.
For the volatile feud between Matt Taven and Vincent to come to an end, they must go back to the beginning.
Last week, Vita VonStarr delivered Vincent’s message to Taven that there would be a “day of reckoning” on March 15. Now we know the method behind Vincent’s madness.
The Righteous leader invited Taven to meet him for a final showdown at the building where their individual journeys in pro wrestling began more than 12 years ago: PAL Hall in Fall River, Mass.
Taven, who has been trying in vain to provoke Vincent into fighting him one last time, immediately accepted the invitation.
The epic battle in Fall River will be broadcast on the 19th Anniversary pay-per-view on March 26. ROH officials announced that the match is unsanctioned, which frees the company from liability.
The blood feud between the former friends began nearly a year and a half ago when Vincent committed arguably the most heinous act in ROH history. He sneak-attacked Taven, sliced his head open with an axe and licked Taven’s blood off his fingers.
At Final Battle in December 2019, Vincent defeated the former ROH World Champion and then shattered his ankle after the match in another sickening display of sadism.
Back when they were starting out on the New England independent wrestling scene, Taven and Vincent forged what appeared to be a close friendship. They trained together at the Lock-Up Wrestling Academy at PAL Hall and wrestled on Top Rope Promotions cards there.
On March 26, the two of them will enter the historic building once more. Perhaps only one of them will walk out.
