The Motor City Machine Guns reformed tonight at Slammiversary, making their Impact return.
Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley answered The Rascalz open challenge that had been built over the course of the last several weeks on Impact. The two teams had a back and forth match, with the MCMG picking up the win with a double team maneuver.
The match was the first for Sabin since January 2019, when he was sidelined with a torn ACL while working for Ring of Honor.
Sabin and Shelley have not teamed together since 2018, when they faced The Young Bucks and Roppongi 3K in a three way match at ROH/NJPW War of the Worlds 2018. They started as a team back in 2006 for Zero1-Max, but soon started teaming together in Impact, where they are former Tag Team champions.
Tonight’s Slammiversary event has been hyped with promises of appearances from former Impact stars. Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson have been announced for the show, as well as a “former world champion”.
