Lio Rush Reacts To Scott D’Amore’s TNA Firing, Alex Shelley Talks Tag-Team Wrestling



Alex Shelley believes tag team wrestling has hit a “bit of a downward point” these days.

Speaking on a recent edition of the “Busted Open Radio” podcast, Shelley was asked if he would rather spend the rest of his career as a singles wrestler or tag team wrestler. He said,

“I think we’re kind of hitting a bit of a downward point in tag team wrestling right now. You’re seeing a lot of the guys my age, we’re 40 — but they’re aren’t any true tag teams coming up to really take our place. You look at it ten years ago, FTR, Young Bucks, Briscoes, MCMG, Time Splitters, you had so many and now it’s kind of starting to dip a little bit.”

He continued, “While it’s our responsibility to carry on that lineage, as you taught me, we taught them, and we’re still around so we have to keep teaching it and I think that’s a really, really important part of pro wrestling that has to stay alive.”

Shelley vs. Moose for the TNA World Championship will be taking place at Friday’s No Surrender pay-per-view event.

Lio Rush has chimed in on the news that TNA Wrestling has terminated the contract of Scott D’Amore.

During a recent interview with Irish Wrestling & Entertainment, the former WWE and TNA Wrestling star commented on his time working with D’Amore. He said,

“Yeah, my memories of working with Scott, I’ll never forget. I walked through the Globe, which is located in Los Angeles, California, and there was an Impact/New Japan joint show. My first time working for Impact, I knew that I wanted to make a good impression. I knew that I wanted to eventually, hopefully, work for Impact in the future as a mainstay.”

He continued, “Scott pulled me aside after my match and said, ‘Man, like, you’re really good’ and he expressed that he heard stories about me in the past and he doesn’t really judge people based off the stories. He bases people off of personal interaction. We really got along and he really believed in me. He believed in my talents. He believed in what I could do and what I was capable of. He took a chance on me too. So I always have the highest respect for Scott.”
