  • TNA wrestlers Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley, The Motor City Machineguns, will be returning to Ring of Honor for two shows in April. They will work April 18th for Ring of Honor in Detroit Michigan and April 19th in Chicago Ridge, Illinois. When fans began to speculate in the official ROH message boards that this meant that Ring of Honor had lost their pay-per-view deal, Gabe Sapolsky posted the following message: â<80>The PPV deal is not dead. There is no Samoa Joe coming. Take the announcement for what it is. Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin are coming back to ROH for one weekend. There is no other underlying things to it. It is a simple deal that was put together very simply and quickly. That is all. Stop speculating and enjoy it for what it is, which is exactly what it appears to be on the surface. Shelley & Sabin are coming to Detroit and Chicago.â<80>
