Cody Faces Huge Roadblock In Dallas Before World Title Match

Shane Taylor is a man caught in the middle of an internal conflict. Taylor won two out of three of his bouts on the Honor United Tour. On the first night, Taylor showed that competing and winning a bout is more important than taking a payoff from SoCal Uncensored. After a valiant effort against Yano in London, Taylor found himself as part of a monstrous team with Bully Ray and Punishment Martinez, defeating the World Champion Dalton Castle and The Boys.

As Taylor tries to make sense of his internal struggle, he has been asking for the biggest matches possible to make the biggest amount of money. And in Dallas, Taylor gets an opportunity to face a former World Champion whose money he has accepted before in a state where both men have deep roots!

“THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE” CODY vs. SHANE TAYLOR

Shane Taylor and “The American Nightmare” Cody face each other one-on-one for the first time in Dallas, TX! Taylor, whose attention has been drawn to Josh Woods and Woods’ longtime friend and training partner Bellator fighter King Mo in recent weeks, looks to channel the success he had on the UK tour to pick up the biggest win of his career in the state he has relocated his family to against one of Texas’ favorite sons, former ROH World Champion Cody!

The singles match is a risky one for Cody ahead of his ROH World Championship Triple Threat Main Event at Best in the World. Taylor recently has sacrificed wins for violence in recent bouts against Woods, Joey Daddiego, and IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champion EVIL and could do the same against Cody. However, Taylor has also been conflicted and has found the tunnel vision and focus needed to win bouts, including two on the Honor United Tour. Who will win this first-time clash in Dallas?
