Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin) vs. Bullet Club (Ace Austin and Chris Bey)

Motor City Machine Guns win after a really fun and fast paced match. Machine Guns hit a Double Seated Flatliner on Bey and Austin while Bey was sitting on Austin’s shoulders. Really great job by commentary meantiong that Bey and Austin may be doing a better job at being like the Guns than the Guns were.  Near fall from a ‘Cradle Shock’ while Alex Shelley kept Austin on the apron only for Austin to push both of them into Sabin and Bey to break the fall was well timed and really made the audience believe the match was over. Crowd was really into this match.


Deonna Purrazzo and Chelsea Green vs. Mickie James and Mia Yim
