The Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin) recently spoke with ESPN for an interview. Below are some of the highlights.
On capturing the ROH World Tag-Team Championships for the first time:
Chris Sabin: “I think that’s the kind of thing that never gets old. The kind of thing that you always remember as motivation for why you’re wrestler. When you do something special, like win a title, it’s kind of like that dragon that you’re always chasing. That feeling of adrenaline and accomplishment, it’s a lot of feelings all in one, but it’s such a great feeling overall that keeps you going in wrestling, regardless of all the pain and injuries.”
On they formed The Motor City Machine Guns tag-team:
Alex Shelley: “Sabin and I becoming the Motor City Machine Guns happened because I was working for Zero-1 Max pretty frequently at that point in time. They wanted X-Division guys. They wanted me to pick a partner for a third [shot] and I said, ‘Okay, well Sabin’s really good, you guys would like him. I know he’ll do well’. We won the titles in our first match and we just kind of went from there.”
On ROH’s tag-team division and working against The Young Bucks:
Chris Sabin: “I’ve been kind of enjoying each match as it comes along. Ring of Honor has a really good tag division now and I would say probably the Young Bucks are probably our best opponents overall. We’ve wrestled them so many times over the past 10 years, and I’d say they’re the number one team that I enjoy wrestling against. There are so many good tag teams from The Briscoes, to The Kingdom, then you have War Machine — all those guys. It’s an enjoyable time right now for tag team wrestling.”
