Ring of Honor Television champion Shane Taylor spoke with the WINCLY recently to comment on the Bully Ray fan incident in Portland from a few weeks ago. Taylor states that although getting taunted by fans is common with the territory, there are certain lines that should not be crossed.
This is the thing: whatever character you wanna portray is fine. Having people say stuff to you comes with that territory but there are lines that you shouldn’t cross. If someone crosses those lines, you still have to remember that’s someone wife. Someone is gonna come to the defense of that person. I know if that was my wife what I would do, but nothing like that happened.
Taylor admits that he wasn’t present for the incident, but reiterates that certain actions have consequences, especially in the current social media age.
I believe in this social media era that the things you say and do don’t have consequences. You can say whatever you want – that’s not the world that I come from. I would take the story with a grain of salt because you’re only hearing from the fan’s perspective. I wasn’t there so I can’t tell you, but some people can definitely cross lines. When they do, do we not have the right to be like, ‘Hey man, what’s your issue?
