I agree with Mspart. Taylor has been wrestling on a level that is WC calibre. He already owns an individual win over Cox. The place that he's at psychologically right now, as well as physically, puts him in a situation and position to be the best on the team, not named Kyle Snyder.
To "laugh heartily" at the concept that "Taylor isn't beating Cox" is a bit foolish. Things change. Variables change. Dynamics change. Considering that they were literally a hair apart in their matches, and that DT of "now" is a better version compared to the DT of "then", yeah...
Regardless... Having a JG/JB/KD/DT/JC/KS/NG lineup from 70kg thru HWT is going to be a AWESOME.
