Tony Khan: I Would Love To Have The Motor City Machine Guns Back In AEW, They're Both Great

Tony Khan comments on The Motor City Machine Guns.

Former TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin) entered free agency after their contracts expired at the end of March. In April, Cassidy Haynes of Bodyslam.net reported that Shelley and Sabin were working on finalizing a deal with AEW.

Speaking with CBS Sports' Shakiel Mahjouri, Tony Khan was asked to comment on how likely it was that fans would see The Motor City Machine Guns in AEW in 2024.

“I can’t say that for sure. I thought they were excellent here in 2022, when they appeared at All Out. That worked out really well, they were tremendous and they added a lot to the card. I loved having them here. Originally, that spot was intended for The Briscoes. I was not able to use The Briscoes, I was not permitted to use The Briscoes in that situation. I think it would have been great, but Motor City Machine Guns came in and really helped us at that time, being a part of the show when there was a spot that was intended for another great tag team, in my opinion maybe the greatest tag team ever, The Briscoes. You needed somebody really strong, somebody very good to come in and help us, and that’s where the Motor City Machine Guns did come in about two years ago and were a big part of All Out ‘22, and would love to have them back here any time. I think they’re both great," Khan said.

As of this writing, there is no word on whether the Motor City Machine Guns will return to AEW.
