Flip Gordon Joins Best Friends to take on The Elite at Global Wars: Columbus

The partnership between Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling has never been stronger and this fall, GLOBAL WARS descends upon the US featuring stars from both great organizations! The tour is highlighted by the United States return of the IWGP UNITED STATES CHAMPION KENNY OMEGA as well as the United States debut of YOSHI-HASHI! All of your favorite ROH stars will be on the tour, like ROH World Champion “The American Nightmare” Cody, the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions Adam Page and the Young Bucks, ROH World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns, Jay Lethal, Silas Young, The Addiction, and more!
 
New Japan will be represented by former ROH World TV Champion KUSHIDA and rival Hiromu Takahashi, as well as Toru Yano and members of SUZUKI-GUN represented by NEVER Openweight Champion Minoru Suzuki and the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions Killer Elite Squad!
 
Officials from ROH and NJPW have been working around the clock and matches are being signed daily! Bullet Club has seemingly been picking on a highly decorated newcomer for months in their web series Being the Elite. The active Armed Serviceman has asked ROH matchmakers for an opportunity to take on members of Bullet Club. In Columbus, he gets his wish and he’s bringing his friends.
 
His Best Friends.
 
IWGP US CHAMPION “THE CLEANER” KENNY OMEGA & ROH WORLD SIX MAN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS THE YOUNG BUCKS (MATT & NICK JACKSON) vs. FLIP GORDON & BEST FRIENDS (CHUCKIE T. & BERETTA)
 
For months, Bullet Club has hazed one of ROH’s newest stars Flip Gordon and broadcast it to those that follow their web series Being the Elite! Whether it is ROH World Champion Cody, Adam Page, “The Villain” Marty Scurll, or the Young Bucks, Gordon has borne the brunt of what Bullet Club calls harmless ribs. With success in five countries in the month of September the pride of Kalispell, MT is feeling confident. 
 
And he wants revenge. 
 
The C4 explosives expert who spent most of September traveling around the globe, including pinning CMLL legend Ultimo Guerrero, will get his opportunity to get in the ring with two-thirds of the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks and the IWGP US Champion “The Cleaner” Kenny Omega as he teams with Best Friends in Columbus!
 
Best Friends have been looking for an opportunity to earn a shot at the ROH World Tag Team titles and have a pin on the Young Bucks. These two teams bring their heated rivalry to ROH and jumped at the opportunity to team with Gordon as a pin on the Young Bucks would solidify Best Friends’ case for a title shot or even potentially create a US Championship opportunity for Gordon, Chuckie, or Beretta should they score a pin on Omega!
 
And one small wrinkle: Matt Jackson has declared on Twitter that the previous night’s main event, Omega and the Bucks, collectively known as The Elite, versus CHAOS in Pittsburgh will be for the Six Man Titles. While ROHWrestling.com is awaiting confirmation on if this will hold, if it does, one must wonder if the titles will be on the line in Columbus should The Elite emerge victorious in Pittsburgh! Who will pick up the victory in the Capitol City? Join us to find out!
