Alex Shelley is a veteran in the professional wrestling industry who has been competing since 2002. Shelley has entertained fans in promotions such as TNA Wrestling, Ring of Honor, and New Japan Pro Wrestling over the years, but the wrestler recently announced that his wrestling career has come to an end. Shelley is perhaps best known for his time as one-half of the Motor City Machine Guns tag team with Chris Sabin. It had previously been reported that Shelley’s deal with ROH had expired earlier this week, but the former TNA Tag Team Champion has since stated on Twitter that his career in the wrestling business has come to an end. Shelley’s last match saw him team up with Chris Sabin again to face The Young Bucks and Roppongi 3K at ROH/NJPW’s War of the Worlds events earlier this year.
In the end, MCMG’s final match was against @NickJacksonYB, @MattJackson13, @njpwShowT, and @njpwyohei_k. I really don’t think I could’ve asked for a better ending. Four guys I love very much who I hope I helped some over the years. Thank you, gentlemen.

Fans who tuned into last night’s episode of Raw saw Sasha Banks and Bayley team up together in another attempt to reconcile their differences. The two of them hugged it out in the ring after winning their tag team match, seemingly indicating that they are now back on the same page. What some fans may not have noticed during last night’s show is that Sasha Banks debuted her new tattoo. Banks’ tattoo has been spotted by several fans who watched yesterday’s Raw show, and it does appear to be a legitimate tattoo that she has put on her left forearm. Banks has not commented on the tattoo as of right now. Feel free to check out some of the images of the former Raw Women’s Champion’s new ink down below:

Carmella has defeated the likes of Charlotte Flair and Asuka to retain her Smackdown Women’s Championship over the past few months, but there does appear to be a new challenger on the horizon. Fan-favorite Becky Lynch has been picking up a great amount of wins on Smackdown recently, and it is now rumored that Lynch may go on to challenge Carmella for her championship soon. Cageside Seats reports that Becky Lynch will likely be earning the title shot at some point very soon and will then go on to face Carmella for the title at SummerSlam next month. Lynch will be facing Carmella in a non-title match on Smackdown tonight, so expect the preparation for the future title match to begin during that bout.
