Matt Taven and Will Ospreay Face Off At Final Battle

Ring of Honor’s seminal event, FINAL BATTLE, emanates from the Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Friday December 15 at 9 PM EST! Fans around the world will be watching on Pay Per View, on the Fite.TV app, on ROHWrestling.com, and on Playstation Network as wrestling’s top stars clash with scores to be settled and championships to be decided.
 
This year’s Final Battle is the 16th in ROH history and will be the best, ever! The Kingdom’s Matt Taven has had one of the best years of his career, quarterbacking a duo of young stars in “The Best Around” TK O’Ryan and “INKSANITY” Vinny Marseglia to the top of Tag Team and Six-Man Tag Team competition to the biggest heights of their careers while having one of the biggest of his own. But Taven believes a far-reaching “Kingdom Conspiracy” is preventing him from winning the one championship missing in his pursuit to be the first Grand Slam Champion. At Final Battle, he can prove his worth in the ring against one of the world’s top stars!
 
SPECIAL ATTRACTION MATCH
MATT TAVEN vs. “THE AERIAL ASSASSIN” WILL OSPREAY
 
2017 has been a huge year for Matt Taven. The man who is referred to as the Tom Brady of The Kingdom entered the year one-third of the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions, won the Honor Royal at Manhattan Mayhem, vanquished an old foes in former three-time ROH World Champion Adam Cole and Jay Lethal in the first round of the Soaring Eagle Cup, while defeating legends like Ultimo Guerrero and white-hot rising stars like “Switchblade” Jay White.
 
At ROH Elite, Taven defeated Flip Gordon showing extreme discipline in keeping Gordon out of the sky and on the mat. He’ll need to use the same discipline when he competes with perhaps the highest flyer who combines a tantalizing potential and a robust resume of present success in “The Aerial Assassin” Will Ospreay!
 
Taven and Ospreay have a lot in common – both men won the ROH World Television Championship in their very first match as contracted Ring of Honor talents. Both men entered ROH well beyond their years, well ahead of the average developmental curve of a professional wrestler.
 
For Ospreay, Taven is one of the hottest stars in ROH coming off a series a huge wins and presents an opportunity for Ospreay to build off his show-stealing victory over Flip Gordon at Global Wars – Chicago. For Taven, Ospreay is an international phenom whose name could be added to the litany of stars Taven has defeated in 2017, making him unavoidable in the ROH World Title picture for 2018!
