As noted by ROH, Shelley has only recieved two other chances at Ring of Honor’s top prize in his time with the company. He wrestled Austin Aries in 2005 and Bryan Danielson in 2006. He has been a tag team specialist for most of his career, primarily with Chris Sabin as one half of the Motor City Machine Guns.
