If you saw Ring of Honor Wrestling this weekend, you saw Matt Taven win the Top Prospect Tournament, accepting the help of Truth Martini and the question is “why?” Why did Taven take the opportunity given him with Martini’s involvement when Tadarius Thomas denied it?
When one door closes, another door opens…
Matt Taven has been a blue-chip prospect for several years, coming from the New England area.
Two years ago, The Prodigy Mike Bennett and I sat ringside at Final Battle 2010, scouting future opponents, but had not made our debut yet. The crowd was amazing. One year ago, we came within inches of winning the ROH TV Title in a dramatic 3-way elimination match vs. Jay Lethal & El Generico.
This year, we have something more important to do. We've come to praise Jerry Lynn, not bury him.
I have been hurt and away from the ring for almost 2 months now. In that time period I have already come to the conclusion on two things. 1) Lots of time think and reflect and 2) Even more time to think and reflect.
I remember that December morning like it was yesterday.
Burrowed in my yacht’s cabin to escape frigid White Sea winds sweeping across the deck, I read a Wall Street Journal article which filled me with a rage I dare not revisit in detail. (Just ask my manservant Ramón, who suffered its brunt.) News broke that Bernie Madoff had duped some forty-eight hundred investors into fueling his elaborate, sixty-five billion dollar Ponzi scheme! How did I not think of that?!
