In Collinsville, Daniels has a chance to make his record in championship bouts 8-8-1 in his seventh defense!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The next match the ROH Board of Directors signed is one between one of the top veterans in ROH and ROH’s newest signee!&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>“THE HEAVY METAL REBEL” FRANKIE KAZARIAN vs. FLIP GORDON</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Flip Gordon burst onto the New England wrestling scene when he joined the Army National Guard and moved from Idaho, where he was a gymnast while attending North Idaho College, to Boston and trained under Brian Fury. Gordon, ROH’s only ever competitor from Montana, impressed ROH officials at a tryout camp and then in his opportunity on ROH television, earning a contract, and landing ROH one of the independent’s most-talked about stars!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Gordon will look for his first win against a man focused on getting revenge on Hangman Page, “The Heavy Metal Rebel” Frankie Kazarian!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Kaz may have helped his tag team partner and best friend Christopher Daniels win the ROH World Championship by double-crossing Bullet Club. But, actions have consequences, and the “Problem Solver” of Bullet Club Hangman Page has drawn a target on the back of Kaz and has fired away. Kaz, who has been firmly in contention for the ROH World Television Championship, has been sidetracked by attacks and a War of the Worlds loss to Page.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>With Kaz’s mind on other matters, could this be the opportunity Flip Gordon needs to pick up his first ROH win? In his first match under ROH contract, Gordon will look to take to the sky to defeat the veteran Kaz, who is in the best shape of his career and is among the Smartest Men in the Room. A win against Kaz, in whatever state of mind he may be, would be a major upset, and Kaz does not take young opponents lightly. Who will win in this bout between Kaz and Flip Gordon?

With pinfall singles victories over Jay Lethal and KUSHIDA, Young has positioned himself as one of the top stars in ROH. His partner, Beer City Bruiser, picked up a Four Corners Survival match at ROH Unauthorized and is at his most dangerous. The two, who won Tag Wars 2016, will team up to face two thirds of the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions, Bully Ray and the Briscoes, at Gateway to Gold!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>At ROH Masters of the Craft, Silas Young was taken by surprise when Bully Ray demanded their match be No Disqualification. Since then, it has burned Young that Ray was able to defeat Young in Hopkins, MN. Simultaneously, since the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Championships were created, Young and Bruiser have been seeking a third partner to compete for the championships. Young and Bruiser see this as the best route to not only get revenge on Bully Ray but to make a statement to two-thirds of the Six Man Tag Team Champions.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>For Bully Ray, this is his first two-on-two tag team match in ROH. One of the greatest tag team wrestlers of all-time, Bully Ray teams with an eight-time ROH World Tag Team Champion, their first time as a duo! With a surprising level of continuity and comradery, these two will likely form a team to be reckoned with. But Young and Bruiser know each other inside and out and will have the experience advantage heading into Collinsville! What will happen when four of the hardest-hitting wrestlers in ROH face each other in tag team action?

For over two years, Lethal held one or both the ROH World and/or the ROH World Television Championship. Meanwhile, Fish cemented his place in ROH history when he became a three-time ROH World Tag Team Champion and a ROH World Television Champion.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The two met at 15th Anniversary in a bout billed as a Top Contender’s Bout. Fish gave Lethal everything he had but was unable to come out on top. Since then, the loss has eaten away at Fish and Fish has petitioned for a rematch. In the meantime, Lethal’s hot streak continued, winning an eight-man Vegas Wild Card tag bout and then a Four Corners Survival match to earn a shot at the ROH World Title. While Lethal came up empty, he is looking for a big win to put him back in contention for the gold. A win for Fish or Lethal will put either back in the driver’s seat for a title opportunity following this highly-anticipated rematch!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/collinsville-il-060417">There is nothing like seeing the stars of Ring of Honor LIVE!

One of the hottest prospects in wrestling, Gordon made his initial mark at </span>a ROH<span style="font-size: 13px;"> tryout camp before getting an opportunity on Ring of Honor television. From there, the high-flying Gordon impressed the ROH Board of Directors and earned a contract.</span></div><div><!--break--><br /><span style="font-size: 13px;">Gordon comes to ROH serving as an active member of the Army National Guard. Born in Boston, MA, Gordon was raised in Kalispell, MT where he was a four-time state champion wrestler. Gordon has become a can’t miss prospect in large part because of his aerial offense, part of which was developed years before he ever stepped in the ring when he was a gymnast and mascot Cecil the Cardinal at Northern Idaho College!</span></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>His athleticism served him well following a 2014 move to Boston where he enrolled in the New England Pro Wrestling Academy, where he was trained by former Top Prospect Tournament competitor Brian Fury. In that time, Gordon became a C4 and explosives expert as a combat engineer.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Just two years since his first match, Gordon’s meteoric rise and innovative offense has made him one of the hottest free agent in the world. Ring of Honor is thrilled to welcome Flip Gordon to the ROH Roster!</div><div>&nbsp;</div> Thu, 18 May 2017 17:12:35 +0000 Chris Hall 488271 at http://www.rohwrestling.com Legendary CMLL Stars to Compete at Best in the World http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/legendary-cmll-stars-compete-best-world <div class="field field-sub-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Ultimo Guerrero and El Terrible will be participate in both events! </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/bitw-cmll-news">bitw-cmll-news</a> </div> </div> </div> <div>The stars of Ring of Honor return to Pay Per View Friday June 23 at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium with an INTERNATIONAL television taping the following night!

While KUSHIDA came up short, both challenger and champion saw their stocks rise dramatically following the bout. KUSHIDA would win the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship four times following that tour, including defeating Kenny Omega and Kota Ibushi for the championship.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>But during Final Battle 2016 weekend, KUSHIDA told ROH officials that it was his goal to compete for and win Ring of Honor’s singles gold in 2017, something Kevin Kelly mentioned at the time on Ring of Honor Wrestling television. In the spirit of friendly competition, ROH and NJPW officials signed dream matches throughout the War of the Worlds 2017 Tour and KUSHIDA accepted perhaps the most challenging slate of bouts.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>And what a week it was for KUSHIDA! In Toronto, KUSHIDA defeated Jay Lethal via his signature Hoverboard Lock. And just one week later, KUSHIDA defeated Marty Scurll to become the 13th ROH World Television Champion following a Small Package Driver in front of a jubilant sold-out Philadelphia crowd in a match that will air on ROH TV!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>KUSHIDA had the Hoverboard Lock locked in before Scurll transitioned and countered into his signature Crossface Chicken Wing. The two traded submissions before the lights went out. When the lights returned, Adam Cole appeared on the apron, distracting Scurll enough for KUSHIDA to take advantage!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>With the win, KUSHIDA becomes just the second Japanese star to hold the coveted championship and the fourth out of the last five champions to be foreign born. KUSHIDA will wear the ROH World Television title proudly as part of the B Block beginning on Wednesday May 17. KUSHIDA looks to win his second BOSJ in three years with ROH and NJPW watching to see who, if anyone, will defeat KUSHIDA in the grueling round-robin tournament to potentially interject themselves in the ROH World TV Title scene.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Two men that have already petitioned for a shot at KUSHIDA are Silas Young, who defeated KUSHIDA in Dearborn, and the former champion Scurll, who believes Adam Cole cheated him out of his championship. Keep it locked on ROHWrestling.com to see who will challenge KUSHIDA first!</div><div>&nbsp;</div> Tue, 16 May 2017 16:31:48 +0000 Chris Hall 487651 at http://www.rohwrestling.com
