One of Ring of Honor’s top stars, Flip Gordon, has re-signed with the promotion. Gordon has been working with Marty Scurll’s Villain Enterprises faction since turning heel last year.
Gordon was one of the stars of Being The Elite and was one of the featured performers at All In. Some fans were hoping Gordon would make the jump to AEW when his deal ran out with Ring of Honor. ROH announced the news of his re-signing on Twitter earlier today.

Gordon has been rising through the ranks of the wrestling scene since debuting in 2015. He was always a talented performer but he started to breakthrough as a personality when he began appearing on Being The Elite. He was a notable rival of Cody on that show.
Gordon’s most famous storyline was being intentionally left off All In. He campaigned for those in charge to “Book Flip” to no avail. It appeared he would not be able to appear on the show but he hid under a mask during the pre-show battle royale, winning the match and earning an ROH World Championship match on the main card.
There is no word on when Ring of Honor will resume holding shows but rest assured, Flip Gordon is here to stay.
ROH also reached out with a statement regarding Gordon’s signing.
“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 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.”
