Unsanctioned match announced for ROH 19th Anniversary PPV

An unsanctioned match is the latest addition to the card for Ring of Honor's 19th Anniversary pay-per-view.

ROH has announced that Matt Taven and Vincent Marseglia will face off in an unsanctioned match at the 19th Anniversary PPV. The match will take place at PAL Hall in Fall River, Massachusetts, which is where Taven and Vincent's professional wrestling careers began at the Lock-Up Wrestling Academy.

In storyline, Taven has been trying to get Vincent to face him in one more match. Vincent agreed under the stipulation that the match takes place where their careers began.

Taven and Vincent were formerly stablemates in The Kingdom but have been feuding since Vincent turned against Taven in November 2019. Vincent defeated Taven at Final Battle 2019 and then attacked Taven's ankle with a steel chair. Taven & Mike Bennett defeated Vincent & Bateman at Final Battle 2020, but Vincent and Bateman attacked Bennett's ankle after that match.

On ROH TV earlier this month, Taven took part in the four corner survival match to decide ROH World Champion Rush's challenger for the 19th Anniversary PPV. Jay Lethal pinned Taven to win that match after Taven was distracted by Vita VonStarr. VonStarr is part of The Righteous with Vincent and Bateman.

ROH's 19th Anniversary event will air on PPV and HonorClub on Friday, March 26. Here's the updated card for the show:

  • ROH World Champion Rush defends against Jay Lethal
  • Grudge match: Jay Briscoe vs. EC3
  • ROH Television Champion Dragon Lee defends against Tracy Williams
  • Unsanctioned match: Matt Taven vs, Vincent
  • ROH Six-Man Tag Team Champions Shane Taylor Promotions (Shane Taylor & The Soldiers of Savagery) defend against MexiSquad (Bandido, Flamita & Rey Horus)
