In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, The Motor City Machine Guns confirmed that they have signed new contracts with IMPACT Wrestling, with Alex Shelley adding that it is the first full-time professional wrestling contract that he has signed in almost 5 years.

Speaking on the announcement Chris Sabin stated, “IMPACT is like family to us, Scott D’Amore was my trainer, it’s home.”

Alex Shelley followed up with his own comments stating, “This is the first full-time pro wrestling contract I’ve signed in almost five years, I pursued physical medicine, and earning that degree was something I needed to prove to myself. Once I had that security and that confidence, I wanted to be back in IMPACT, it has the most familial bond. THere are people here that have seen me grow up from a teenager to a grown-a** man, that’s special to me, and some of the best in the world are right here, there aren’t better wrestlers on the planet than ‘Speedball’ Mike Bailey, Jonathan Gresham, KUSHIDA and Chris Sabin, I could go on and on, Frankie Kazarian, Trey Miguel, Black Taurus, these guys are phenomenal.”
