Marty Scurll, Flip Gordon To Meet At Best In The World In Philadelphia
Marty Scurll and Flip Gordon had some mutual friends in the past, but Scurll and Gordon have never really cared for one another. The two popular stars will square off in a one-on-one match for the third time in an ROH ring at the Best in the World international television taping in Philadelphia’s 2300 Arena on June 29.
This will be the first match between Scurll and Gordon since October, when Gordon beat “The Villain” in the Sea of Honor tournament quarterfinals. Gordon went on to win the tournament. Scurll came out on top in their first meeting, which took place at the 2300 Arena at the end of 2017.
Scurll, a co-holder of the ROH World Six-Man Tag Titles along with fellow Villain Enterprises members PCO and Brody King, is coming off a strong showing at Best of the Super Juniors in Japan.
Gordon has gotten himself in fantastic shape and appears to be fully recovered from the knee injury he suffered earlier this year. Gordon, who recently added a submission move -- the STF (Submit to Flip) to his arsenal -- has scored several big victories as of late, including one over Bandido last month and a win in a Four Corner Survival Match over PJ Black, Dalton Castle and RUSH earlier this month.
Will Scurll use his villainous ways to ground the high-flying Gordon? Or will the heroic Gordon prevail over “The Villain?”
