As Ring of Honor’s roster for 2019 continues to take shape, another move was confirmed today.
Shane Taylor announced via Twitter that he’s agreed to terms on an exclusive contract with ROH: “Incredibly excited to announce that I’ve officially agreed to terms on an EXCLUSIVE contract with @ringofhonor for 2019!! Trust and believe I’m going to continue to #ShatterTheGlassCeiling & show why I’m #TheREALBreakoutStar in ROH!!”
Taylor became a regular member of the ROH roster in 2016, teaming with Keith Lee before Lee left ROH for EVOLVE. He’s played a “problem solver” character in ROH and took part in an angle where he laid out Christopher Daniels at the promotion’s post-Final Battle television tapings earlier this month. Taylor later cut a promo saying that no one paid him to attack Daniels, he did it on his own.
The post-Final Battle tapings featured the debuts of PCO and Brody King, along with the farewells of The Young Bucks, Cody Rhodes, and Hangman Page. ROH has also announced that they’ve signed Bandido and Mark Haskins.
