Regardless of where Flip Gordon’s future lies in pro wrestling, he at least wants a contract that will give him enough money to buy a farm.
As 2019 comes to a close, the question of where Gordon will go continues to persist after his ROH contract is reportedly done through 2020. There are some who wonder if Gordon will join what Chris Van Vliet in an interview referred to as his "dead friends" once he’s done with ROH. Gordon shut down the idea that his future is already set in stone.
“Who says I’m going to go join them? Why do people say that? Why do they assume and say where I’m going next? There are lots of options and I saw one question and it asked, ‘Where do I see myself five years from now?’ That’s a mind-blowing question because I haven’t even been wrestling for five years. Look how much the business has changed since I started and will in the next five years," Gordon said.
As Gordon pointed it out, he hasn’t been wrestling for five years and said the wrestling landscape has changed a lot since he started. Gordon added that he wants to weigh his options and see what each side has to offer.
“I’m happy with what the ghost of my friends are doing, but I want to see how the landscape of professional wrestling changes because I am the mercenary and I’m going to see all my offers before I make any decision, whether it’s staying or going anywhere. That’s mind-blowing to think. Five years is a long time. I would love to move to somewhere warmer. I’d love to buy a farm someday. That’s doable in five years, maybe three. You hear that? Give me some money so I can buy a farm, probably in North Carolina or Tennessee,” Gordon said.
In the meantime, Gordon will be at ROH Final Battle on December 13 when he teams with Marty Scurll to take on the team of Bandido and Flamita. You can check out the interview in the video at the top of the page.
