Motor City Mania

Alex Shelley (right) has been a member of the TNA roster for over three years and enjoyed some measure of success throughout that run. However, nothing compares to what he is currently experiencing as one half of the Motor City Machine Guns (MCMG).

Teaming with his good friend, Chris Sabin, has propelled Shelley and MCMG into one of the hottest acts in TNA. Case in point: The Guns‘ t-shirt was the highest-selling shirt at the Bound For Glory PPV weekend last month.

The rise of MCMG is very reminiscent of LAX’s popularity boom last year. And while LAX seems to have cooled off for the time being, Shelley & Sabin continue to produce some of the best matches for TNA Wrestling.

Last night’s Genesis PPV bout against Team 3D was arguably the match of the night and while the Detroit natives have a long ways to go before anyone compares them to the great tag-teams of yesteryear there is no question they are currently the most popular duo within the TNA tag-team division.

I spoke to Shelley following his victory over Team 3D last night about the origins of MCMG, his career in TNA and what’s in store for the brightest young team in wrestling.
