Backstage News On An Upcoming TNA Departure Considered To Be Imminent, Another Expected In September

I am now able to confirm reports of Alex Shelley’s imminent departure from TNA Wrestling. After working last weekend’s house show loop, Shelley is waiting for the days to run off his current deal which is believed to be up soon.

Shelley’s partner, Chris Sabin, is  believed to be signed through September but is also expected to leave at that point.

According to a source close to The Motorcity Machineguns, both would love to be picked up by WWE, however, no immediate interest is known. One observer feels they will be more likely to work the independent circuit domestically as well as possible dates in Japan.

    I'd love to see any of the above mentioned superstars end up in WWE. We need some fresh talent

    God, if we eventually have a show with CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Antonio Cesaro, Cassius Ohno, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and the Machine Guns…. I think they could finally put together a product that'd get the internet community interested again.

    Less John vs. Johnny. More Punk vs. Bryan. More Rollins vs. Ambrose. More Machine Guns vs. KOW. Yes, please.

    "According to a source close to The Motorcity Machineguns, both would love to be picked up by WWE" – yeah, you could have asked ME and I would have told you the same thing. Anyone who is in the wrestling business wants to get "picked up by WWE" except for Sting I guess. LOL! Just giving you a hard time. Had to do it ;-)

    Shelley has always made me think of a young HBK, I can only hope he gets a shot with WWE. Sabin is good, but I think that Shelley is the unquestioned star of the team.

    Sad to see homegrown TNA talent leave one by one. Meanwhile, more Superstars join because they were fired or their careers were sinking.

    If WWE doesn’t come calling they should go to R.O.H. because their tag-team division is pretty strong and theys have some awesome matches with W.G.T.T. or the Briscoes.
