EXCLUSIVE: Shane Taylor Challenges AEW’s SuperKliq

Our correspondent, Jaychele Nicole, hosted an interview with Shane Taylor as a part of her ‘Shelly Speaks’ series. This interview comes ahead of his upcoming match against Kenny King at Ring of Honor’s Final Battle on December 11th. 

Shane Taylor is currently the head of the Ring of Honor faction Shane Taylor Promotions. STP currently includes Shane Taylor, Kaun, Moses, Ron Hunt, and O’Shay Edwards. During the interview, Shane was asked about possible dream matches regardless of the promotion. Shane said:

“When it comes to New Japan, something that I’ve sort of based my entire athletic career on is I don’t give a damn about anybody’s reputation, you’re going to have to prove it to me first in order for me to believe it. So when you look at who people are saying is the best, your mind immediately goes to a Will Osprey, or an Okada, for me personally, guys like Tomohiro Ishii or Minoru Suzuki. All of those men would be people I would love to stand across the ring from, throw hands, and see who the baddest really is. You know what I mean? As far as a group goes, me and my guys Kaun and Moses of SOS, we are the best trio on the planet right now. I don’t care what anybody says, but there happens to be people who are toteing themselves as the best trio. They go by the name of the Superkliq, you’re talking about Cole and the Bucks. I respect everything that they’ve done. They’re talented performers. What they’ve done business wise, in ring, performance wise, second to none, they’re incredible. But when it comes to being the best trio in this sport, they’re out of their damn minds if they think that they’re over us. The easiest way to do that would be to step in the ring against the three of us and really find out. Being two of them are EVPs of the company, it shouldn’t be that hard. Our stance is, we’re ready to fight. We’ll see what their stance is.”

When asked about the possible opponents for a revived Pretty Boy Killers (Shane Taylor and Keith Lee) tag team, he once again mentioned the members of the SuperKliq. Shane was not shy about his desire to face The Young Bucks. Shane shared, “Dream matches for us as a tag team, yea. Again, and I know that I just talked about them, but I think PBK against the Bucks would be great. PBK against GOD in New Japan, would be great. Obviously you got FTR as well. And although it was short lived, I would love to have another run against the Briscoes. There are lots of legendary tag teams out there that I would love to get in the ring with and test our skills against. I feel like again, when you add Keith and myself, I don’t think any of those boys beat us when we’re on our game. It’ll be great to see.”
