Alex Shelley Addresses AEW Rumors, Malakai Black Match Saved Cezar Bononi From Being Cut



The Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin) completed their tenure with TNA Wrestling in late March, concluding with the March 22 and March 23 tapings in Philadelphia, PA.

As we have reported here on eWn, the Motor City Machine Guns may be considering a potential move to AEW.

Shelley was asked about the rumors during an appearance on the “Sunday Night’s Main Event” podcast.

He said, “No, I wouldn’t share any of that. Loose lips sink ships.”

On the May 10, 2017 edition of WWE NXT, Cezar Bononi faced Aleister Black (Malakai Black), with the latter emerging victorious.

Despite initial expectations of being a prominent NXT talent, Bononi was released in 2020.

On a recent edition of the “Developmentally Speaking” podcast, Bononi revealed that the match positively impacted his career.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On the bout: “Yeah, the first match that I had on TV, for sure, with Aleister Black, Malakai. There were so many people saying to me that was not going to make it to TV ever then I had that opportunity. It was a really good opportunity. To be honest, I was going to be fired the next day but I did such a good job in that match that saved my my job.”

On whether he knew he would get fired: “Cuts. Just cuts. They had to cut and I understand the business, it’s all good. They just had to cut to get new people and whoever is not getting good results, they cut. That’s how business works. I never thought there was something personal or whatever. Actually, I was not delivering whatever was necessary as well. I totally understand on the business side of that. The good thing is that I got at least one chance to do something, and I did it good.”
