Report: WWE Signs Northeast Independent Wrestler
Jul 9, 2012 - by Atlee Greene
PWInsider is reporting that Matt Taven is in the process of signing a WWE developmental deal. Taven received rave reviews for his match with Mike Mondo on Ring of Honor TV and recently worked an FCW dark match. He also appeared on an episode of Monday Night Raw on 3/5/12 as a member of Teddy Long’s security team that escorted David Otunga and John Laurinaits out of the building.
Taven cut his teeth on the New England scene and eventually started working on shows throughout the Northeast and beyond. He is considered the top guy in New England since Mike Bennett and Tommaso Ciampa signed with ROH.
While his signing is not confirmed, one source stated “I believe it’s only a matter of time.” Taven was trained by Spike Dudley and “Brutal” Bob Evans
