Alex Shelley Concerned About Current State Of Tag Team Wrestling

Concern for tag team wrestling from TNA's Alex Shelley

Professional wrestling is littered with great tag teams, from the likes of FTR and The Young Bucks in AEW to the Motor City Machine Guns, GYV, and ABC in TNA to Finn Balor & Damian Priest or Imperium in WWE. 

This hasn't stopped Alex Shelley - one half of the Motor City Machine Guns with Chris Sabin - from worrying about the current state of tag team wrestling and the former TNA World Champion believes tag team wrestling is reaching a downward point.

"I think we're kind of hitting a bit of a downward point in tag team wrestling right now. You're seeing a lot of the guys my age, we're 40 - but they're aren't any true tag teams coming up to really take our place. You look at it 10 years ago, FTR, Young Bucks, Briscoes, MCMG, Time Splitters, you had so many and now it's kind of starting to dip a little bit. While it's our responsibility to carry on that lineage, as you taught me, we taught them, and we're still around so we have to keep teaching it and I think that's a really, really important part of pro wrestling that has to stay alive," Shelley said on Busted Open Radio

Shelley is still linked with Chris Sabin in TNA but they have primarily been singles wrestlers in recent months. Shelley was TNA World Champion for the second half of 2023 and he remains involved in the world title picture heading into No Surrender. Chris Sabin, meanwhile, is the reigning X-Division Champion.
