[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."

[10.0] "Alex Shelley was one of my favorites during his time in TNA. It's a shame he really didn't get to hold any kind of singles championship longer than he did. He was the better half of the Machine Guns but his accomplishments don't show that."
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."

[10.0] "an incredibly talented and skilful wrestler, I remember watching him for the 1st time many years ago, wrestling then CZW Iron Man Champion Jimmy Rave. Within this match, I instantly knew who the better wrestler was, as Shelley combined chain wrestling and submission wrestling and made it flow like water, really well done. On top of that, Shelley has a charisma to him, and over the years, he has developed into a great wrestler, with hopefully more years to come."

[8.0] "I like Alex Shelley. I'm definitely a fan of his. Hell, he's from Michigan which is where I'm from and he's a great talent in the ring! His performances tagging with Sabin against Beer Money in their series of matches back in 2010 were incredible! How can you not like and respect him because of that? But the only problem I have with him is that his work in the ring is his only strong point instead of the rest of his abilities to go along with his work in the ring. I just can't get into his personality that much cause he tries to be funny whenever he gets on the mic nowadays, but there's a very thin line between being corny and being funny and humorous. Like I said, I like Alex Shelley, he's a great talent in the ring, I just think that he ever breaks away from the Motor City Machine Guns to become a singles star and try to go after the world title in TNA, I think he really needs to improve and develop on his personality and not try his best to be a funny guy on the mic and just fully be himself. I get that him on the mic is a good portion of who he really is and I know he's weird like that, and if you're funny and you want to show that side of you on camera, that's all well and good, I have no problem with that, but be more charismatic with your promos instead of trying your best to be funny on the mic for the crowd! I think that's what Alex is lacking is charisma. But besides that, I'll always give him all the credit in the world for being a great worker in the ring!"
