Tony Khan Addresses Potential AEW Free Agent Signing

Tony Khan Addresses Potential AEW Free Agent Signing AEW

Tony Khan has revealed he would love to see Motor City Machine Guns back in AEW, following reports that they were in negotiation.

The team of Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley entered free agency after their TNA contracts expired at the end of March.

It was reported that the Motor City Machine Guns were working on finalizing their AEW deal.

During a recent interview with SHAK Wrestling, AEW owner Tony Khan shared his thoughts on the team joining AEW this year, saying:

“I can’t say that for sure. I thought they were excellent here in 2022, when they appeared at All Out. That worked out really well, they were tremendous and they added a lot to the card. I loved having them here.

“Originally, that spot was intended for The Briscoes. I was not able to use The Briscoes, I was not permitted to use The Briscoes in that situation. I think it would have been great, but Motor City Machine Guns came in and really helped us at that time, being a part of the show when there was a spot that was intended for another great tag team, in my opinion maybe the greatest tag team ever, The Briscoes.

“You needed somebody really strong, somebody very good to come in and help us, and that’s where the Motor City Machine Guns did come in about two years ago and were a big part of All Out ‘22, and would love to have them back here any time. I think they’re both great.” 

At AEW All Out in September 2022, the Motor City Machine Guns teamed with Jay Lethal to take on Wardlow and FTR (Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood) in a six-man tag team match.

On April 29, 2024, IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Champions Bullet Club War Dogs teased a match against the Motor City Machine Guns.

The Motor City Machine Guns previously held the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championship and the Strong Openweight Tag Team Championship in NJPW.
