After ROH began a working relationship with CMLL, Matt Taven traveled to CMLL to compete for three weeks in September 2016. Returned to CMLL for two weeks in late March 2017. He challenged Ultimo Guerrero for the NWA World Historic Middleweight Championship on 3/17/2017. His first big rival was Rush. They battled in a series of trios matches as well as two singles matches. Rush won one, while Matt won one. He next faced off with Ultimo Guerrero again beginning with the ROH Six Man Tag Team Championship tournament where Taven's Kingdom defeated Guerrero's team. Guerrero then teamed up with El Terrible to beat Taven and Vinny Marseglia at The ROH Best in the World 2017 PPV. In their next one on one meeting, Taven beat Guerrero on June 24, 2017 in Lowell, Massachusetts USA. On March 16, 2018 at Dos Leyendas, 2018 Taven teamed with Atlantis and Niebla Roja to defeat Último Guerrero, Gran Guerrero and Euforia. Taven went on to achieve his biggest victory to date in CMLL when he won the NWA World Historic Welterweight Championship on March 30, 2018 by defeating Volador Jr. Matt held the NWA World Historic Welterweight Championship until he lost it back to Volador Jr. on August 3, 2018 in Arena Mexico. After the match, Taven and Volador developed a mutual respect for each other, leading to them teaming up in various matches. This lead to them feuding with Rush and Bárbaro Cavernario. The feud became so intense that the two teams signed contracts to face each other in a Lucha de Apuestas Best Two Out Of Three Falls Hair vs. Hair Tag team match at the CMLL 85th Anniversario. Rush and Cavernario won the match after Taven turned on Volador, costing them the match and their heads to be shaved.
