TNA Wrestling is gearing up for what they hope will be a memorable year, despite the departure controversy surrounding Scott D’Amore. However, recent developments have stirred fan interest, as rumors circulate about two top stars potentially parting ways with the company.

Set to host their next PPV event, Rebellion, at the Palms Casino Resort on April 20, TNA finds itself in the midst of speculation regarding the future of The Motor City Machine Guns, Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin. PWInsider‘s report revealing their scheduled appearance for Smash Wrestling in London, Ontario, on April 21, coinciding with TNA’s post-PPV TV tapings, has added intrigue to the situation.

The fact that TNA typically relies on Shelley and Sabin for these tapings makes their decision to work the independent show instead a notable departure from the norm. Speculation mounts as their current TNA contracts are rumored to be nearing expiration, potentially by the end of March. The report suggests that the duo’s choice to prioritize the indie event over the tapings may signify a failure to reach a new deal with TNA.

“The belief among some we have spoken with is that Shelley and Sabin’s existing TNA deals are expiring shortly, possibly as soon as the end of March.” By them working the indy show instead of the tapings, it may indicate that a deal is not expected to be reached between the two sides.”


Since joining forces as a tag team in 2007, The Motor City Machine Guns have left an indelible mark on every promotion they’ve competed in, from ROH to NJPW. Their tenure in TNA saw both Shelley and Sabin capture World and X-Division Titles, underscoring their versatility and success. Should they choose to part ways with TNA, they would join a list of recent departures from the company.

The fate of The Motor City Machine Guns in TNA remains uncertain, leaving fans eagerly awaiting further developments. Do you believe Shelley and Sabin will indeed leave TNA Wrestling? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!
