Re: Hate on Matt Taven
Get fucking real. Taven isn’t the scape goat. He’s been groomed as a future ROH champ ever since his 2013 top prospect win.
Ever since 2013 anybody watching ROH regularly could see that Taven would flop as champ. This was a 6 year disaster in the making.
Taven gets hate because he’s just simply put: lame. He’s never been over to any degree, always been in the worst faction The kingdom, never been a top 20 wrestler at any time in a work rate promotion like ROH, his catch phrase is hideously awful “I’m Matt Taven,” what the fuck is a Melvin, no creativity, no originality, mediocre wrestler...
Basically put having Matt Taven standing atop a 15 ft ladder in Madison Square Garden as the ROH Champ is, was and always will be a huge disaster for a company trying to find its footing after the Elite’s departure.
Matt Taven is the personification of delirious’ Failed booking and it’s a car wreck everybody saw coming.
Scurll as champ and nobody complains.
PCO as champ and nobody complains.
Bandido as champ and nobody complains.
Haskins as champ and nobody complains.
Brody King as champ and nobody complains.
