Jonathan Dennis Taylor (born on January 1, 1971) better known by the ringname "Lone Gunman" John Taylor, is a retired American professional wrestler. Taylor is best known for his appearances with GroundZero Wrestling 2K1 (GZW2K1) and Hong Kong Wrestling Federation (HKWF). His achievements include holding the elusive GZW2K1 Lord Of The Coliseum crown and two reigns with the promotion's World Heavyweight Championship.

Wrestling career

HKWF (1990-2001)

John Taylor's early days were by his own admission unremarkable. He served in John Profit's Hong Kong Wrestling Federation as something of a career midcarder in spite of his obvious technical prowess. Towards the end of the decade, he struck up a working relationship with HKWF executive Fox Giovanni. This led to increased corporate backing for Taylor who would soon become known as "HKWF's Hitman".
