Shane Taylor will receive a Ring of Honor title shot against RUSH after winning a poll voted by fans. No date has been announced just yet, but we can expect to see it later in 2021. It will be the first time that the two wrestlers have gone head-to-head.
“The Taylor-RUSH match will happen as a direct result of the fans making their voices heard,” Ring of Honor announced. “It’s what The Experience, ROH’s groundbreaking fan engagement initiative, is all about. A date has not yet been set for the first-time-ever singles match between the two hard-hitting competitors.
“Taylor is coming off a big win over two-time former ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe at Final Battle last month. RUSH, who scored a controversial victory over Brody King at Final Battle, has only been pinned once in ROH since making his debut in December 2018.”
