Flip Gordon Explains Why He Chose To Sign With ROH Over Impact Wrestling

Wrestling with Ideas had the chance to interview Ring of Honor wrestler and featured member on Being the Elite, Flip Gordon. In the interview, Flip talks about breaking into the business and how he would split time between wrestling indies and fulfilling duties as part of the National Guard, Joining ROH, his breakthrough role on Being the Elite, and more. Some notable quotes from the interview can be seen below

IF WE COULD SEE FLIP BEING A REGULAR IN CMLL AND NEW JAPAN PRO WRESTLING:

“I would love to. I mean that’s my goal. I would love to eventually not be doing indies. Just be doing Ring of Honor, New Japan, and CMLL. I love travelling. I love going international and I love those other new styles because CMLL was a new style for me. New Japan was a new style for me. Wrestling in those places will make me a better performer in the long run. ”

IMPACT WRESTLING OFFER AND WHY HE CHOSE ROH OVER IMPACT:

“They {IMPACT} were actually the 1st ones to reach out to me… I had already worked for Ring of Honor in Baltimore in that tryout match pretty much with Matt Sydal and I had so many friends working there {ROH}. I already had been there so I knew how they ran and in my opinion it was just the better option for me and where I was at at the time and I still think it was the best option. “

DOES FLIP GORDON REALLY BELIEVE IN THE FLAT EARTH?:

“(laughs)… Yes and no. Flip Gordon believes that the earth is flat because he is a Twitter troll. Travis does not, no. Flip Gordon, Evil Flip, he’s got a t-shirt now about the flat earth and you can go buy that at ProWrestlingTees.com/TheFlipGordon. So if it’s going to make me money, I believe in it. ”
