Shane Taylor made the following announcement regarding his relationship with Ring Of Honor as far as 2019 goes, and lucky for ROH, it’s good news regarding their resident knockout artist remaining on their block:

Taylor had the following to say about his 2019 in an interview with Ring Of Honor earlier this month:
“Coming back to ROH, I know the deck is already stacked against me. I’m not the hand-picked guy of upper management because I’m not in the right “indy cliques” and people may not like how I dress or what I have to say, but after this tour and my performances before I left … nobody can deny that Shane Taylor is now the international star I said I was. Everybody I come across when I get back is going to figure that out quickly.
2019 is going to be a nightmare for the bosses and nothing but joy and pride for those who believed in me. I’m no longer being the good soldier; no longer sitting back and fighting for a company that doesn’t fight for me. I’ve tried that; it doesn’t work. Now I’ve got a new focus, new thought process and new goals: to expose all of Ring of Honor’s chosen ones and change this sport, this business, this company, in ways people never thought possible. Get ready, people, because this year I shatter that glass ceiling.”
With brawlers and bruisers such as Taylor, Jeff Cobb and PCO, the Ring Of Honor landscape will look to pack a major power punch in 2019.
