Ring Of Honor star, Matt Taven, was recently interviewed by Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated’s “Extra Mustard” section regarding Ring Of Honor’s: Best In The World PPV & Taven also, spoke on his former company-mates; Mike Bennett & Maria Kanellis’s move to the WWE.
Here are the highlights:
Performing In Front Of His Hometown:
“I’ve had the chance to go wrestle in Mexico and that was one of the crowning achievements in my career. That is because of what wrestling means in Mexico. To be as big of a star as Ultimo Guerrero and El Terrible are in Mexico is an incredible accomplishment on its own and now, they get to show the world why they are such big stars in such a big market. For me personally and for Vinny, with both of us coming back home to Massachusetts, we’re looking forward to being back in front of the home crowd. Both of us made our names on the independents in the area and I’ve literally seen kids who were our fans grow up into men. We’re going to show everyone that The Kingdom is still going strong in Ring of Honor.”
Mike Bennett & Maria Kanellis Going To WWE:
“I love it, when Mike and I tagged together, we both found ourselves and our comfortableness in the wrestling ring. We’ve remained the closest of friends and we opened a wrestling school together in Rhode Island. We watch all the shows together, so we got to watch his big debut and I couldn’t be happier for Mike and Maria.”
