Chris Sabin thinks it's a wrap for MCMG.
This past July during a Ring Of Honor TV taping, one-half of the former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns' Alex Shelley announced in front of a live crowd that he was going to be stepping away from the ring and gave his longtime partner Chris Sabin his well wishes as Sabin was set to embark on his own journey as a singles wrestler once again.
That journey could have its first accolade added to it tonight when Sabin challenges Punishment Martinez for the ROH World Television Championship Championship at 'Death Before Dishonor XVI'. Ahead of his championship bout, Chris Sabin joined the 'Pancakes And Powerslams' podcast via 'The Sports Daily' and stated that from what he can tell, The Motor City Machine Guns are done as a team for now.
“I think, just for the foreseeable future, that the Motor City Machine Guns are pretty much done. Of course we’re still friends outside and everything, but yeah, I think that I think I’m going to be on my own for quite a while now." Sabin said. "I don’t see the Motor City Machine Guns reunited anytime soon. But that’s okay, you gotta mix it up you know? I’ve gone back and forth between singles and tag team wrestling throughout my career. I was a tag team wrestler for the last couple of years, so it’s good to switch things up, and you know, see how for I can take this as a singles wrestler.”
With one tag team officially separating, another one may be getting back together as former five-time IMPACT World Tag Team Champion Davey Richards announced that he will be returning to wrestling in 2019 and that announcement caught the attention of the man who Richards has held tag team gold with in a number of promotions, Eddie Edwards.
