Flip Gordon Discusses New ROH Deal, Says There Was Interest From AEW And WWE

On May 25, ROH announced the re-signing of Flip Gordon. 

Gordon has become one of the top names in ROH over the past couple of years, aligning himself alongside Marty Scurll, Brody King, and PCO in Villain Enterprises. Gordon is the current number one contender to the ROH World Title and was scheduled to receive his title shot at Supercard of Honor as part of WrestleMania week.

Appearing on Busted Open Radio, Gordon discussed his decision to remain with ROH. 

"There was interest from AEW and WWE, a few others as well, but Ring of Honor offered me the best deal. I also believed that's where I wanted to be because I still have a lot of time to grow. I've only been doing this for five years and I have a lot of goals in Ring of Honor, so why would I want to leave?"

Gordon went on to call the deal "life-changing" and note that he is looking forward to getting back in the ring whenever ROH runs shows again. He said his ultimate goal is the ROH World Title.

Gordon last wrestled at Gateway To Honor on February 29, competing in a six-man tag team match alongside Scurrl & King to defeat The Briscoes & Slex.
