Shane Taylor Hopes To Work In The Creative Side Of Wrestling Once In-Ring Career Is Over

Shane Taylor is showing no signs of slowing down, but he is thinking about his future once his in-ring career is over.

Taylor is arguably in the middle of the best run of his career as one-third of the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions and coming off a run with the ROH Television Title. Once his in-ring career is over, he hopes to continue to be fulfilled creatively in wrestling.

"I think, as most of us do, we're going to be doing this our entire lives in some capacity," Taylor said on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast. "I know I'm not going to have a school because I'm a shitty coach. Not that I can't teach, but I know that there are things that I do after years of trial and error, but I don't think about how to explain that to somebody. There are small things I miss and details are everything. That's how I know I'd be a bad coach. For me, for the creative side, I love talking to people and coming up with ideas of a character they see in their head and bringing that to life and bringing that to fruition. Working on people with promos and bringing out every bit of what they see in them and what I see in them. That's a very intriguing part of this business for me. When I'm done in ring, that's probably what I'm going to pursue; some sort of creative side of this. It's like artwork. To be able to see, to have this blank canvas and have this idea of what you want to have and being able to put it together and have it come out even better than how he expect it. When you put that final product out and it hits, you're like, 'Oooof, man.' To people that don't understand that feeling, there is absolutely nothing I can do to describe it for you. It's the best. I definitely think at the end of my career, whether it's ten years from now, 15 years, whatever, that's definitely what I aspire to do next."

Taylor recently competed in a Four Corner Survival match on the September 24 episode of ROH Television. Brody King was victorious in the bout, which also included Jay Lethal and Kenny King.
