Alex Shelley of The Motor City Machine Guns has been pulled from the six-man main event at Impact's Hard to Kill, which takes place Saturday night in Nashville.
Shelley was set to team with Machine Guns partner Chris Sabin, as well as Impact World champion Rich Swann, to take on AEW World champion Kenny Omega and Impact Tag Team champions Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson.
Shelley informed Impact on Thursday night that he's unable to travel to Nashville due to "unavoidable circumstances". He will be replaced in Saturday's match by Moose.
In a statement posted to Impact's website, Shelley said, "I assure everyone out there, I do not have COVID. I am not orthopedically injured. But in the interest of safety, my situation is a very complex one. I put that first -- as does Impact management. And they are doing the utmost in terms of precautions to make sure that nobody is at risk at Hard to Kill or going forward."
Shelley also apologized to his teammates, and vowed that he will return to the organization.
