Ring of Honor launched a new YouTube show today, and on the first edition of Week By Week, host Quinn McKay had some news. Flip Gordon is sticking with Marty Scurll, re-signing with ROH.
Gordon was a fixture on Being The Elite in the pre-AEW days, but has opted not to test the free agent market and possibly join The Young Bucks’ promotion when his deal expires later this year.
Here’s the official press release, which also refreshes your memory on ROH storylines (the company has been on hiatus throughout the pandemic, and has already cancelled all shows through the end of June):
FLIP GORDON SIGNS NEW MULTI-YEAR DEAL WITH ROH
Ring of Honor is pleased to confirm that Flip Gordon, one of the brightest young stars in pro wrestling, has signed a multi-year deal to remain with the company.
The signing was first announced on the premiere episode of “ROH Week By Week.”
“Ring of Honor has been my home for the last three years and I’m very excited to say that I’m not going anywhere for years and years to come, because ‘The Mercenary’ has signed a new multi-year, million-dollar deal,” Gordon said. “Now it’s time to win some ROH gold!”
The freakishly agile Gordon, who has a background in amateur wrestling, mixed martial arts and gymnastics, has come a long way in pro wrestling in a short time. The native of Kalispell, Mont., signed with ROH in 2017 after spending just over two years on the independent circuit.
After an impressive rookie year in ROH, Gordon was voted the Breakout Star of 2018. That year, Gordon got the better of Bully Ray in an intense feud and won the Sea of Honor tournament on the Chris Jericho cruise by defeating Silas Young, Marty Scurll, Dalton Castle and Jay Briscoe in succession.
Gordon shocked the wrestling world last year by joining Villain Enterprises and adopting a more ruthless attitude and in-ring style. He won a 20-man battle royal at Free Enterprise this past February to earn a future shot at the ROH World Championship.
