5. SHANE TAYLOR (8-3-1)

Taylor started the year with three losses in his first four matches, but he has been undefeated since losing to Bandido on April 13.

Before losing the ROH World Title to RUSH at the Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view on Sept. 27, Taven had not been pinned in a one-on-singles match since Aug. 3, 2018, when he lost a two-out-of-three falls match to CMLL star Volador Jr. Taven held the ROH World Title for 174 days after winning it from Jay Lethal in a Triple Threat Ladder Match (Marty Scurll was the other competitor) at G1 Supercard on April 6.
