Flip Gordon Wants To Leave A Legacy In ROH; Brody King Featured On ROH TV This Weekend

By Kevin Eck

“The Mercenary” Flip Gordon never wanted to leave Ring of Honor, and the company made it clear that the feeling was mutual by offering him a lucrative, multi-year contract, which he signed a few weeks ago.

“My heart wanted to stay with Ring of Honor because I believe in what Ring of Honor is doing,” Gordon told me on the upcoming episode of the “ROHStrong Podcast,” “and so when they made me a deal that I absolutely just could not refuse and it was the best deal that I couldn’t even have imagined, it was just a no-brainer.

“I have so many goals in Ring of Honor. I want to be a champion in Ring of Honor. I want to leave a legacy in Ring of Honor.”

Gordon also talked on the podcast about his friendship with The Elite. He said he wouldn’t be where he is today had they not taken him under their wing when he arrived in ROH, but he wants to show that he can make it without them.

“A side of me always wanted to prove I can do this without The Elite guys,” Gordon said. 

Other topics Gordon discussed on the podcast, which drops Monday (June 8) on ROHWrestling.com and most podcast platforms, include: being bullied as a kid and spending time in mental hospitals, his MMA experience, transforming into “The Mercenary,” and much more.

Audio of the heated exchange between Matt Taven and Vincent on the most recent episode of the podcast can be heard in this clip on ROH’s YouTube channel.

Brody King of Villain Enterprises is spotlighted in this weekend’s episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling.” The show features the insane Las Vegas Street fight that pitted King and PCO against then-ROH World Tag Team Champions Jay and Mark Briscoe at the 17th Anniversary pay-per-view last year.

Also included on the show is King’s first singles match in ROH, against Jeff Cobb, and a six-man tag match between Villain Enterprises and MexiSquad.

Danhausen’s ROH t-shirt is selling like crazy, and that’s driving  Marty Scurll crazy.

On last week’s episode of “ROH Week By Week,” Scurll told Danhausen he would have ROH release a Danhausen t-shirt, and if it sold well he might consider getting him a job with the company.

As revealed on the latest “ROH Week By Week,” Danhausen made good on his vow to be “the No. 1 t-shirt salesman,” and it’s not sitting well with “The Villain.”

The premiere episode of “Dalton’s Castle” on YouTube did not disappoint. Not only was it entertaining, but it reinforced my belief that dogs are better than cats.

ROH stars play Dungeons & Dragons on the new YouTube series, “Role Play of Honor,” premiering Saturday (June 6).

I’m not really into D&D, but I’m guessing it has nothing to do with The Dungeon of Doom and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat.
