Luv all wrestling wrote on 18.08.2016:
[8.0] "Alex Shelly is a stylish, charismatic all rounder who has excelled in every role except for the main event, which he has never been in. At his worst Shelly is a great tag team partner."
Strezemann wrote on 10.08.2016:
[7.0] "Shelley continued to evolve as a worker following his time as a big-time player in ROH, but I never felt like he reached that aura of can't-miss singles prospect again. At the time, it really seemed like he would become a star. Still, while he for whatever reason never got a significant singles push, I find it commendable just how much of a partnership his teams with Sabin and Kushida have been. They looked like teams, wrestled like teams, had a lot of success as teams, and they both provided a lot of value to the shows they were on, even if their brand of highly acrobatic, very elaborately staged spots grew a bit stale for me over time. Unfortunately, while Shelley's charismatic, pretty good on the mic (though, again, I feel like he peaked early on and somehow settled for being just a bit player), and capable of some extremely complicated in-ring sequences, the prime years of his career have seen him plagued with injuries, causing a lot of stop-start stuff to be going on."
NastyYaffa wrote on 15.04.2016:
[1.0] "Never really seen the hype & appeal of Alex Shelley. His charisma has never really shined for me, and his in-ring work has always been average at best. He doesn't really deliver great matches unless he is in the ring w/ an all-time great like Bryan Danielson. His tag team w/ Sabin is also OK, but I have never viewed MCMG as a great tag team."
DanTalksRasslin wrote on 28.06.2015:
[9.0] "An artist on the mat who can also pull off lots of exciting high-flying maneuvers, Shelley is an excellent junior heavyweight talent by any account. Though more than capable of good singles matches, he has had his greatest success as a tag team wrestler and has been a part of two fantastic teams, Motor City Machine Guns with Chris Sabin and Time Splitters with KUSHIDA, both of which are a joy to watch for fans of tag team wrestling. Is doing well in Japan since departing TNA and has also appeared several times with KUSHIDA in ROH, but I'd like to see him work more regularly stateside in the future."

[9.0] "A great performer in teams, both the Motor City Machine Guns and the Timesplitters are among my favorite teams out there. A great mind for the industry in general, highly aware of everything he does."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 19.12.2014:
[6.0] "I understand why people would rank Alex Shelley pretty high - He's explosive and has a pretty good look. At the end of the day, most of his accomplishments have been tag related as opposed to as a singles wrestler. He was stellar with the Motor City Machine Guns in TNA and even better with KUSHIDA in Time Splitters (who've performed for both New Japan and ROH. ) Yet his only singles accomplishment outside of the indies consists of a two-month reign with the TNA X-Division title. If he can obtain the IWGP Junior Heavyweight singles title, it would be a boon for him (though getting the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Championship with KUSHIDA again would be nice, too. )"

[10.0] "Alex Shelley, along with KUSHIDA, have held the IWGP Junior Tag Titles twice in 2013. Shelley has challenged for IWGP Junior Heavyweight Gold against then-champ Prince Devitt and lost on April 5th, 2013. Not to mention Alex Shelley made the finals of The Best of the Super Junior in 2013, where he lost to Devitt again. Such accomplishments move him on this list, even though he’s recently returned from an Injury."
TheProdigy wrote on 09.05.2014:
[10.0] "Damn, he is awesome! Technical, clever and very artistic . I hope he becomes to the new world champion!"
Paul Allain wrote on 31.08.2013:
[10.0] "From starting as a small wrestler stuck in endless fighting with Jimmy Jacobs in IWA-MS, to a prick in ROH, to paparazzi with a strange Chris Jericho vibe in TNA, to a World Touring MCMG, to an exciting part of japan's junior heavyweight division, Alex Shelley had a long ride all-around the globe. Is high-flying athleticism is well-complimented by his pervasive charisma, making him a dynamite of a wrestler. Their are many reasons to like him : his fun matches around the independent scene, his outrageous and comical character work in TNA, his constantly good and somewhat under-appreciated contributions to ROH early years, his breath-taking teaming with Chris Sabin as the Motor City Machine Guns graced rings all over the world, his burgeoning career in Japan, etc... The best reason to watch him is simply because he will excel at any position he is given and will find a way to stand out as a great wrestler."

[8.0] "Big fan of Alex, glad he works for New Japan and enjoys it! Tag team specialist, solid singles star, seems to be one of the best juniors in whatever company he performs for!"
