ROH’s Matt Taven Talks Cross Promotion
Will ROH step through the ‘forbidden door’ too?
What’s a wrestling news day without the words ‘forbidden’ and ‘door’? Regardless what you think of the terminology, the current cross-promotional efforts between IMPACT Wrestling, AEW, NJPW, and AAA has been fresh and exciting.
But one name is conspicuous by its absence - Ring of Honor.
Many wrestling fans have pondered on whether ROH would get involved with these recent cross promotional activities, having previously worked with NJPW during the halcyon days of Bullet Club in 2018.
And now, former ROH World Champion has had his say, saying to the Wrestle Slam podcast:
“You know, it’s one of those things where you just never know. From one day to the other, this stuff just pops up all the time and you’re kind of finding out like everyone else is and you’re like, ‘Oh, I guess that’s happening now.’ So, in wrestling, they say ‘never say never.’ I would always be open to that. Wrestling is a huge community and the more you can kind of cross blend things, the better. The more you can kind of get different eyes on the product, the better obviously.
“At the same time, Ring of Honor is in such a great spot right now, just because there’s so much talent on the Ring of Honor roster that I really feel like just highlighting our talent alone, I think so many people would find themselves being bigger Ring of Honor fans if they just watched the show top to bottom because we have such an unbelievable group of talent and there’s so many people still that haven’t been able to come over in the UK.”
