The Motor City Machine Guns have answered the call.
The Rascalz issued an open challenge for IMPACT Slammiversary and the challenge was answered by the duo of Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin. The Motor City Machine Guns had not wrestled as a duo in IMPACT since TNA Lockdown 2012 when they teamed to challenge Samoa Joe & Magnus for the TNA World Tag Team Titles.
The Motor City Machine Guns, who looked as good as ever, were victorious in the bout, picking up the victory with the Dirt Bomb.
Later in the night, it was announced that Shelley & Sabin would challenge The North for the IMPACT Tag Team Titles on the July 21 episode of IMPACT! The North retained the Tag Team Titles against Ken Shamrock & Sami Callihan at Slammiversary.
