Taven as face, with a crimson mask, is the right way to go with him.

See me in three months when Haskins wins this feud in the ring, but it doesn’t help him get over.
— HASKINS (@ThisIsHaskins) November 6, 2019
We had two interesting events this past weekend. They were fun shows that featured what I enjoy in pro wrestling. I am brutally honest in my opinion of ROH – usually I am negative in general – but I wanted to thank ROH for putting on some very different and interesting shows.
I also like the post title story of Matt Taven. The issue with him and Vinny is being well done. I think that their blow-off match at Final Battle has the chance to steal the show.
I look forward to seeing if ROH can use these good feelings and put a string of good shows together.
