Shane Taylor And Other ROH Regulars Reportedly Not Under Contract

As the "new era" of Ring of Honor continues to develop itself, company owner Tony Khan has intertwined his signed talent with several unsigned performers. In the process, some of those unsigned names have become regulars in the programming, leaving many to question their contract status with ROH. A new report from Fightful Select has provided some answers.

Shane Taylor, a former ROH World Television Champion, resurfaced in the ROH brand prior to the Final Battle pay-per-view last December. Since then, he's participated in three rounds of television tapings, including the most recent ones last weekend at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. Despite his frequent appearances, Taylor reportedly remains a "completely free agent." While Taylor may be unsigned, he still has some unfinished business he'd like to take care of in ROH. Last month, Taylor made it clear that he wants to acquire every championship the promotion has to offer, including the ROH World Championship that has eluded him.

Rhett Titus, Cheeseburger, and LSG are also working regularly for ROH without contracts. Titus, a former ROH World Tag Team Champion, recently revived his partnership with Tracy Williams as the two are once again teaming together. Cheeseburger has also been participating in tag team action lately as he continues to wrestle alongside Eli Isom. In March, though, Cheeseburger received an opportunity to challenge ROH World Television Champion Samoa Joe for his title. For LSG, his ROH return occurred during the first official tapings of the "new era" back in February as he teamed with Joe Keys and Rex Lawless.
