This weekend Shane Taylor will take on Kenny King in a Fight Without Honor, at the company’s Final Battle pay-per-view before the company goes on a hiatus.
Taylor has been a constant presence in the company since 2014. During his time with the company, Taylor started his own stable that he called Shane Taylor Promotions consisting of Jasper Kaun, Moses, and O’Shay Edwards.
Taylor recently appeared on Busted Open Radio where he admitted that he doesn’t think the company ever understood him or his group. He revealed that the company originally didn’t want to market them.
“No, not at all. For a lot of the reasons that you stated previously, right? We are a strong black proud group, we are for everyone, this isn’t saying we are anti anybody, because we are not. We are for everyone,” Taylor admitted. “But we aren’t for everybody. There are people who are going to hear what I say and the things that I talk about and take them as a negative, instead of a positive. There’s a lot of people who did that when this first started. They didn’t want to market it, they didn’t want to promote it. They hated the idea, they thought it was bad for the company. This is not rumor, this is not hearsay, this is what I was told. Two years later, we have turned that around.”
