On a recent episode of Ring of Honor Wrestling, Flip Gordon and Shane Taylor were the final two competitors remaining in a battle royal to determine the two men that would compete to earn a shot for the Ring of Honor World Television Championship. Gordon had to use speed, quickness, and explosiveness to defeat the dominant, near-300 lbs Taylor to earn a shot for the ROH World Television Championship!
With the ROH World Television Championship picture becoming clearer, Gordon has been informed by the ROH Board of Directors that he will get his shot in Pittsburgh, at ROH’s international television taping, Steel City Excellence and he will face the winner of Supercard of Honor’s Last Man Standing Match for the World Television Championship when Kenny King defends against Silas Young!
This will be Gordon’s first opportunity to win a ROH singles championship and it will come just one week after Gordon has the opportunity to capture the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Championships with the Young Bucks at Supercard of Honor in front of the largest crowd in ROH history!
Gordon, with a World Television Championship match in hand, now must decide whether to go full-force in a match that he personally did not choose to be in at Supercard of Honor with teammates he is not sure he can trust or preserve himself for a shot at the ROH World Television Championship just one week later. Or perhaps, and more likely, Gordon, a man never known to back down from a challenge, will pour his heart and soul into both bouts and look to be the first dual champion since The Young Bucks simultaneously held the ROH World Tag Team and World Six-Man Tag Team Championships from August to September last year!
Who will Gordon face in Pittsburgh? Join us on HonorClub for Supercard of Honor to find out! Want to see Gordon compete for the ROH World Television Championship before everyone else sees it on ROH Television? Join us in Pittsburgh for Steel City Excellence!
